With this being a variant role, i.e. with the company ideally looking to recruit a Supervisor into the team, it would also suit a more recently qualified, Graduate Engineer.  Either type of person will be looking to deepen their experience within the Design Engineering Team, thus contributing to the continued growth of the business overall. 

Key duties include: 

  • Providing design support (hydraulic & mechanical) to the operations teams across the business.

  • Running various Research & Development (R&D) projects, both project managing and hands on testing, as required.
  • To be capable of taking ownership of multiple tasks and of bringing projects to a successful conclusion.
  • Innovation, research and development are critical to these roles. This is a major way in which the Company can develop intellectual property and thus, competitive advantage in the marketplace.This will be a major factor in helping the Company achieve its medium to long-term business objectives.

The ideal candidate will have the following skills and attributes:

  • Some previous experience of supervising within an engineering department, although this is not essential.
  • Degree in Mechanical Engineering or similar/equivalent qualification or be close to completing.

  • Desire and ability to help the Company keep at the leading edge of technical excellence.
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and verbally.
  • Using spreadsheets at an advanced level to assist with analysis, and assessing the mechanical integrity of components using FEA, would be beneficial. 

This Design Engineer position is a Full-Time position. In the longer-term, should the successful candidate have not had some previous supervisory experience, this could develop into a departmental supervisory role.  In return, a competitive salary is offered that will match the successful candidate’s skills and experience, as well as excellent benefits including: contributory pension scheme, profit-related pay-(performance dependent), 25 days holiday per year (plus public holidays), on-site parking, company events & social working hours.
