Mechanical Design Engineer job in Esher at Regional Job Network

Mechanical Design Engineer

Company: Regional Job Network

Location: Surrey UK

Date Posted:Apr 14, 2017

Role The role of Mechanical Designer represents a tremendous opportunity to join a small & dedicated team of engineers & scientists, designing technically advanced optical & acoustic instrumentation that is widely recognised for both quality & measurement performance. The successful candidate will be expected to embrace the opportunity for significant & rapid career development by accepting an increasing level of overall responsibility for product design & project management that would not necessarily be available within a larger organisation. In addition to complex & challenging design work from concept through to medium volume manufacture, it will be expected that the standard drawing office requirements for build standard control & change note implementation are undertaken. The role of design engineer, on occasion, may also require product & customer support anywhere in the world & in challenging offshore locations - so a willingness to travel at short notice will be needed. Requirements Candidates will be expected to demonstrate a sound & comprehensive knowledge of fundamental engineering principles, therefore at interview will be required to answer a number of simple questions designed to test their knowledge of the basics, their aptitude for design & their ability to problem solve. In particular, we are looking for an 'engineer' - an individual who has a natural feel for their chosen profession - not just someone who can use a CAD package. We are looking for a person who is able to talk the 'language of engineering' & who will feel comfortable having a technical conversation with other engineers across different disciplines & be able to convey their ideas concisely & coherently. Client: Producing & reading standard engineering drawings is fundamental to mechanical engineering - it is the common language that engineers use to convert their designs into reality, so as part of the interview process, prospective candidates will be asked to interpret engineering drawings for some of our existing products. Mechanical engineering design requires enormous attention to detail: tolerances, safety factors, component specifications, materials selection, testing, build standard control; it also requires knowledge of components, suppliers & processes - we are looking for someone with an understanding & appreciation of the importance of all those areas. Qualifications Applicants should be degree qualified in Mechanical Engineering (2.1 or higher) & ideally have at least 2 years' experience working as a design engineer in a high technology engineering environment, although due consideration will be given to any candidate who can demonstrate proven design ability & sound engineering knowledge. Full UK driving license required. Security Clearance The client undertakes defence contracting work for companies therefore candidates must be suitable for SC security clearance with the UK Ministry of Defence, must hold a UK passport & not have dual nationality.
