Mechanical Engineer (27180)

to £50,000 DoE + Benefits

Develop micron scale test and manufacturing equipment

Our client designs, develops, and manufactures cutting edge technologies at scale that have uses in multiple industries. These products rely on precision engineering and innovative electronic control systems to provide features and functionality not found anywhere else. But precision engineering is not sufficient if the designs cannot be manufactured and tested to the same level of accuracy. In this role you will be developing the equipment required to do this at volume.

You will be working collaboratively with other manufacturing engineers as well as engineers specialising in product design, control theory, and electronics to ensure every aspect of a design is considered. This extends to working with manufacturing partners in Asia and America, so good technical communication skills are important. You will be responsible for planning and prioritising your own work and with multiple product pipelines, you will often find yourself working on multiple tasks in parallel.

Suitable candidates will have:

  • A good degree (1st or 2:1) in Mechanical Engineering or similar from a top university (Russell Group or similar) with a good understanding of mechanical fundamentals along with some knowledge of mechatronics and electronics
  • Practical experience building jigs, fixtures and other test and manufacturing equipment
  • Proficiency with 3D CAD (ideally SolidWorks)
  • Full and unrestricted rights to work in the UK
    While not strictly required, experience designing to the micron scale will be highly valued.

This opportunity has arisen due to the new and exciting phase of growth this company is currently experiencing. You will be joining a friendly and welcoming team who value their company culture and celebrate differences as a means to strengthen the team.

Please note: even if you don’t have exactly the background indicated, do contact us now if this type of job is of interest – we may well have similar opportunities that you would be suited to. And of course, we always get your permission before submitting your CV to a company.
