I'm looking to speak with an ambitious Mechanical Design Engineer that's keen to join an established, successful, and forward-thinking engineering firm delivering the design, manufacture, assembly, and testing of high integrity electrical and mechanical solutions to a range of demanding high hazard industries.
The Job
As a member of the mechanical design team, you will have demonstrable design experience across a range of the following competencies, ideally to include close collaboration with production / fabrication teams on bespoke projects:

  • Concept and detail design
  • 2D engineering drawings and 3D modelling
  • Tolerance analysis
  • Design reviews (manufacture / assembly / test)
  • Prototyping (production and assessment)
  • FMEA
  • Understanding of FEA
  • Accurate and clear documentation

The Candidate
With several years already spent in a mechanical design role, ideally for the defence, nuclear or aerospace sectors, you will be a positive and flexible individual that is keen to be part of a team effort within a growing business. You will have an appreciation for how EC&I disciplines integrate with the mechanical elements of a design process for complex projects.
Close co-operation between all elements of the design, production and test process is key, and the successful candidate will be one that seeks to engage with their colleagues, add value at every opportunity and proactively utilise lessons learned to develop their own and the company's overall best practice.
You will ideally hold:

  • HNC minimum in a related discipline
  • Proficiency with AutoCAD and Inventor

This is a unique opportunity to work for a market leading company that's expanding to meet industry demand and is recognised globally reputable in the field.
