Why we need you

We are expanding and growing with plenty of exciting projects on the horizon and we have a fantastic opportunity for a mechanical engineer with a love of fluidics to get deep into the details and take a leading role in technical delivery for our clients.


What you’ll get to do

You’ll be working with a diverse set of skilled colleagues as part of the development team. You’ll lead workstreams and entire projects. The majority of the time you’ll be focused on delivering the best mechanical design engineering possible for our multi-national clients, understanding their needs and communicating clearly and effectively.

You’ll be hands-on in solving really tough mechanical challenges, applying your fluidics skills and also your broader set of skills which may include design of mechanical components, design of systems, electronics, mechatronics, or anything else you can bring. Some examples of activities you may undertake are:

  • Forming and providing technical leadership of project teams
  • Liaising with clients, defining stakeholder needs, and reporting results
  • Carrying out research into cutting edge technologies and markets
  • Taking part in concept generation and problem-solving workshops
  • Evaluating ideas using evidence from modelling (CFD & FEA) or experimentally obtained evidence
  • Preparation of detailed designs, from system to component level
  • Manufacturing of parts and assemblies, hands-on or by liaising with suppliers
  • Testing of designs to ensure they meet the client’s and end-customers’ needs

You’ll be working on projects that span a wide range of industries including food and beverages, agriculture, biotech, aerospace, transport, products and devices, and industrial processes. Our projects often involve product design, industrial automation, connected devices, dispense of fluids, heating and cooling, systems engineering, sustainability, and high and low volume production.

There will be constant new challenges and variety in the projects you’ll work on. There will be new projects and the chance to work with new colleagues frequently. You will shape your own career path and areas of specialism through the work and responsibilities you take on and excel at.
