Mechanical Design Engineers

We are currently recruiting to expand our team of mechanical design engineers, and are looking for talented individuals (temporary and permanent) to join a motivated and highly skilled team. Applications are invited from either graduates with previous experience in a mechanical design role, preferably in the field of rotating machines, or from suitably experienced candidates who can demonstrate qualifications to a broadly similar level, e.g. HNC/HND or equivalent. In either case a sound understanding of fundamental engineering principles and their practical application is essential, together with a high degree of proficiency in the use of 3-D CAD systems, preferably ProEngineer/Creo. Previous experience of working within the automotive industry would be highly beneficial.

The successful applicant will have a number of Key Responsibilities to include:

  • To develop 3-D conceptual designs which meet customer requirements using ProEngineer/Creo, often to a tight timescale;
  • To carry out stress, modal and thermal analysis of electrical machines using finite element analysis (ANSYS package).
  • To progress existing concepts to a fully detailed design which takes into account component tolerances, fits, etc. and is suitable for manufacture;
  • Whilst taking a lead in a variety of mechanical engineering activities, to liaise with electro-magnetic, electrical, hardware and software engineers in the development of new electrical machine designs and improvement of existing products;
  • To maintain accurate design records in accordance with company document control procedures;
  • To prepare preliminary material lists based on design specifications;
  • To supervise the assembly and testing of prototype electrical machines;
  • To work as part of a team, ensuring projects meet all technical and commercial requirements;
  • To respond to internal and external customer enquiries.

In return, we offer a competitive package (including a relocation package where appropriate), an excellent working environment, a wide range of interesting and challenging activities and opportunities for international travel.
