Description: Mechanically biased project engineer required to deliver on time within budget projects allied to the automation and materials handling sector.
Salary:to £44k + generous benefits
Our client is recognized as one of the UK’s market leaders in the area of automated materials handling and sortation solutions, and as a result of continued expansion and increased workload, they are now looking to recruit an enthusiastic and experienced mechanically biased Project Engineer to complement their existing professional team.
The successful candidate will work from a range of contract specifications whilst liaising extensively with fellow members of the Project Team, suppliers and customers in order to develop efficient cost-effective project layouts and detailed specifications and designs using AutoCad, and supporting all engineering aspects of the implementation of the solution whilst paying close attention to the project program, associated costings and contractual testing obligations.
Reporting to the Project Engineering Manager, you will review pre-sales concepts and overall system solutions and verify that these can be engineered to meet specific client requirements, whilst providing Project Engineering estimates, programmes and advice on safety and design detail, so proven previous mechanical design and project engineering experience are essential for the role.
You will be qualified to at least HNC/HND level in Mechanical Engineering (or a relevant equivalent), and will prepare post sales overall general arrangement and sub-system arrangement drawings in order to ensure that the required design intent is translated into the engineered solution and meet statutory and customer specific requirements whilst eliminating safety hazards, and will coordinate activities to ensure that the related PLC functionality satisfies the solution whilst integrating all associated MHE elements.
Additionally, you will ensure that both constructability and maintainability are considered throughout the design phase and will value engineer the overall solution for maximum project margins, before preparing associated installation documentation for the site construction teams and end users to ensure correct operation and maintenance of equipment. On occasions you will also be tasked with the creation of invitation-to-tender documentation, so excellent written and verbal communication skills are a prerequisite for the position, as is a valid driving licence as occasional customer site visits will be required.
