Why we need you!

We’re expanding and growing, and we have a fantastic opportunity for a Senior Mechanical Engineer to join the team. We want to reinforce and expand the skills we have in the group already and are looking to add to the great culture.

You’ll be joining the Design Engineering Group, an inclusive and supportive group based in the Medical Technology division. The group consists of 9 brilliant mechanical engineers ranging in experience and backgrounds, and is led by Kate Farrell-Thomas, an Associate Director in Cambridge Consultants. Kate says; 

 “I adore working closely with my group to understand their career aspirations and work with them to achieve those goals. I also love spotting potential in someone that they haven’t yet seen in themselves. Working with people who are talented, caring and hold themselves accountable is hugely inspiring.”

What you’ll get to do 

The majority of your time will be focused on delivering the best mechanical design engineering possible for our multi-national medical technology clients, understanding their requirements and communicating clearly and effectively.

  • You’ll be hands on in solving really tough mechanical challenges, often alongside other disciplines, and in supportive project teams.
  • You’d be working on projects in across a range of healthcare sectors including Lifesciences, Diagnostics, Bioinnovation, Drug Delivery and Surgical.
  • Our work varies greatly for our clients, but it’s likely you’ll be bringing your A-game to leading work such as first-principle engineering analyses, hands on testing and experimentation, and focused detailed design for manufacture and liaising with suppliers. Your experience in these areas means you’ll be able to design systems and parts for manufacture with real world knowledge. You’ll be leading aspects of the mechanical development and defining technical solutions.

The technical challenges we work on are often ground-breaking and seriously change the landscape of Medical Technology. We’d love you to be a part of that.

Our culture encourages team members to develop their responsibility that suits them and you’ll have the opportunity to significantly develop your skills and career, learn from others and make substantial impact on our projects.

What you’ll bring 

You’ll bring impressive mechanical engineering ability and enthusiasm to the role. You’ll be delivering excellent work on our client projects, to specification and to timelines. You’ll be responsible for delivering tasks you’re given, and also defining tasks for yourself and often others. You’ll have industry experience and apply that to the role to make fantastic impact.

You’ll have:

  • An undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering (or related subject, such as Biomedical, Product Design Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering Mechatronics etc) or equivalent experience
  • Design engineering industry experience. For example, but not limited to, highly proficient in CAD, design analysis, structural analysis, rapid prototyping, technical drawings, design for manufacture, design for assembly.
  • Proven track record of working in a diverse team and successful delivery

You may also have, but are not required:

  • Experience in a consulting environment
  • Experience in regulated product development
