The successful applicant will have a number of Key Responsibilities to include:

- To develop 3-D conceptual designs which meet customer requirements using ProEngineer/Creo, often to a tight timescale;
- To carry out stress, modal and thermal analysis of electrical machines using finite element analysis (ANSYS package).
- To progress existing concepts to a fully detailed design which takes into account component tolerances, fits, etc. and is suitable for manufacture;
- Whilst taking a lead in a variety of mechanical engineering activities, to liaise with electro-magnetic, electrical, hardware and software engineers in the development of new electrical machine designs and improvement of existing products;
- To maintain accurate design records in accordance with company document control procedures;
- To prepare preliminary material lists based on design specifications;
- To supervise the assembly and testing of prototype electrical machines;
- To work as part of a team, ensuring projects meet all technical and commercial requirements;
