Job Title: Engineering Database Manager

Location: Surrey

Salary: £50-60,000

Availability to Interview: Immediate

Sector: Automotive, Design, CAD, 3D, Database, Excel, BoM, Costing


JOB.Rocks Recruitment are proud to present the opportunity to join one of the UK's true pioneers of Automotive Engineering. Our partner is currently engaged in some of the most challenging and innovative automotive projects of all time. As a result of continued success & profitability for our client, we now have an excellent opportunity available for an Engineering Database Manager to join their vehicle design, development and engineering centre in Surrey, UK.


Reporting to the Engineering Director, you will lead the Engineering Database Team and be responsible for the creation and management of all part information within the Engineering Department and the structure of these parts within the Bill of Materials (BoM). The expectation is that this is a highly challenging technically driven role and not a pure managerial style role.

Working with the company's Design, Engineering, Visualisation and Purchasing personnel, you will ensure that the BoM is accurate with regards to part content and structure. You will be required to generate vehicle BoM status reports and to provide this information to all areas of the business as required.

You will also be responsible for producing regular status reports on cost and weight of parts and for managing the release of all parts including the storage and transfer of CAD data.

Furthermore, you will be expected to work closely with the Design team to ensure that all parts are created, recorded and released correctly, with accurate part information to facilitate the procurement and manufacture of these parts, and Workshop, supplying accurate prototype BoM data and associated drawings, ensuring that any build changes are documented correctly.

Qualifications and experience:

It is anticipated that you will be educated to at least HNC / Degree standard with a good understanding of Engineering.

In addition, we would expect you to have experience in the following areas:

  • A solid understanding of whole vehicle design.
  • Experience with external suppliers and consultants.
  • Experience of full product life-cycle activities

This is a senior role within the organisation, so broad-based practical design experience is essential as well as a sound knowledge of automotive structures and systems. You should also be a self-motivated individual capable of working under your own initiative as well as meeting tight deadlines leading a highly-motivated team.

Given the nature of the responsibilities detailed above, you will also need to be computer literate and able to demonstrate experience and a good working knowledge of Microsoft Excel. You will also need to be highly organised, analytical and have a keen eye for detail.

To Apply:

All candidates must be able to prove eligibility to work in the EU. Contact Tom Dyson at JOB.Rocks Recruitment today for more information.
