This is a unique opportunity to join a group with a strong focus and commitment to design, quality and sustainability. You will be joining a young and innovative business and must possess the drive and ambition to join us on our exciting journey where you will be able to demonstrate the following:

  • Sound knowledge of Solidworks 3D CAD (specifically weldments, sheet metal and drawings)
  • Solidworks official certifications as proof of software proficiency.
  • Experience in a low-batch, high-variation manufacturing environment, although all applicants and backgrounds will be considered.

  • The ability to read, interpret and understand technical specifications and drawings.
  • Commercial awareness and a solid understanding of the cost implications of design
  • Extensive experience designing for OEMs.
  • Understanding of BOMS, Production Routing & MRP systems would be advantageous

As the Design Engineer, you will be comfortable designing simple steel and timber structures, with an aspiration to develop and integrate into the R&D team. These specifications will evolve through creation of GA drawings and full manufacturing packs, with accurate BOM. You must be capable of developing an idea from a customer specification, to finished delivered product.

Working with the Group Senior Design Engineer the key deliverables of this position will be, but are not limited to:

  • Creation of manufacturing/engineering drawings for production including GA and production drawings, installation details and technical specifications.

  • Understanding of manufacturing processes, limitations and assembly methods in metals, timber, plastics and stone.
  • A methodical, well-researched and pragmatic approach to engineering.
  • A multidisciplinary approach, as products are typically required to be structural and mechanically resolved as well as ergonomic and visually on-trend.
  • Able to continually challenge what we call “standard” with intelligent data-led counter-proposals.

Having some or all of the above will be advantageous.

In return you will benefit from:

  • Support from experienced design, manufacturing and procurement teams
  • Flexible working arrangements
  • Internal training and professional development support
  • Access to manufacturing and assembly plants to get hands-on with the results of their work
