Description: Experienced and self motivated Senior Mechanical Design professional required by our niche sector manufacturing client.
Salary: to c£40k neg dep exp
Our client has been established for more than a century and is renowned globally as a market leader in their specialist field. As a result of continued success and an ongoing programme of strategic growth, they are urgently seeking to recruit a highly self-motivated and experienced Senior Mechanical Design Engineer to complement their established and highly successful design team.
Reporting to the Engineering Manager, the successful Senior Mechanical Design Engineer will ideally demonstrate previous experience gained in the design of water cooling or heat exchange applications and will become part of a global team tasked with developing cooling solutions for a range of industrial engineering applications.
Working in an often technically varied and pressurised environment, the successful candidate will create and oversee mechanical designs using 3D/2D CAD software programs SolidWorks, Inventor and AutoCAD for air-cooled and water-cooled heat exchanger solutions, and utilise FEA software to design and optimize component elements.
You will also establish product costs by reference to price lists, standard cost data, bought in component costs and liaison with costing and purchasing departments and check contract review documents on receipt of an order before producing pre-production engineering release documents for subsequent processing leading to design and manufacture.
To be considered for this varied and challenging role, it is envisaged that the successful candidate will be qualified to at least HND level or above in a relevant mechanical engineering discipline and demonstrate at least 2 years’ experience gained within a relevant industrial design environment. Whilst previous experience in the design of heat exchangers will prove distinctly advantageous, essentially the successful candidate will possess comprehensive skills in the use of 3D/2D CAD software, Inventor, SolidWorks PDM and AutoCAD and will demonstrate excellent communication skills at all levels and previous supervisory exposure.
