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 Mechanical and Analytical Engineering Group, an inclusive and supportive group based in the Industrial, Consumer and Energy division. The group consists of 40 brilliant mechanical engineers ranging in experience and backgrounds and is led by a team of four dedicated group leaders. The successful candidate will join one of the groups led by Andrew Lintott, or Ross Weir

Andrew says: “I talk openly with my team members to understand their career aspirations and together we craft development plans to help move them toward their goals. I love challenging my team to be ambitious about what they want and finding ways to help get them there.”

Ross says: “I try to empower each member of my group and give them the confidence to seek and secure exciting opportunities which will push their comfort zone and enable them to grow professionally. I love encouraging people to try new things, take on more responsibility or work in new areas, who knows you might just develop a new passion.”

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 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 that span a wide range of industries including food and beverages, agriculture, aerospace, transport, products and devices, and industrial processes.

Our projects often involve product design, industrial automation, connected devices, fluidics, sustainability, and high and low volume production. The team have capabilities in the analysis of engineering systems using their knowledge of physics, analytical methods, and computational modelling including FEA and CFD. The technical challenges we work on are often ground-breaking and seriously change the landscape of industries we work in. We’d love you to be a part of that.

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.

Our culture encourages team members to develop their capabilities and take on 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 Product Design Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering, or 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 project management
  • An area of specialty, for example optomechanics, mechatronics, advanced FEA analysis, composite materials
