Job Description

We currently have 2 positions for a Mechanical Design Engineer; both in the Christchurch area. One is paying £25 - £30k, the other is a Senior Mechanical Design Engineer paying around £40 - 60k depending on experience.

Candidates for both positions need to be degree qualified and have experience as a Mechanical Design Engineer. 

Duties and Responsibilities include:

  • Generating technical proposals, planning and estimation of mechanical work packages
  • Adapting existing designs to suit customer requirements
  • Delivering projects with a customer focus
  • Designing and detailing doors and structures
  • Producing arrangement and fabrication drawings
  • Producing parts lists, bolt lists and assembly drawing
  • Detailing, designing and developing products using 3D CAD
  • Using stress and thermal calculations
  • Preparing and reviewing manufacturing documentation packages
  • Developing test plans
  • Using Radan 2D for legacy work and Solidworks 3D for design work
  • Ordering materials
  • Attending contract launch meetings 

This is a combined list of duties for both roles so experience of all points above is not essential.

For the senior level role, candidates must have 5+ years work experience; experience of managing people would be extremely advantageous.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
