Mechanical Design Engineers required for a long term contract role with the world's leading manufacturer of diesel engines for industrial, vehicle and marine applications. To support on-going development of their range of engines, they now seek a Design Engineer with experience of using CREO CAD software as a design tool.

You will ideally have previous experience of working with the design of engine components, packaging, space claims etc. - especially within the area of engine cooling and lubrication systems.

If you have experience in these areas, then we need to hear from you.

Design Engineer Roles:

These roles are within the European Division of the Energy and Transportation Technologies Research Group and the team is responsible for developing novel engineering solutions and processes working collaboratively with European Universities, internal and industrial partners as well as with our US based sister team. The team leads the powertrain research strategy and delivery within Europe.

You will serve as an experienced, individual contributor for European Engine Research projects. Specific assignments are complex in nature and depending on experience the individual may have the opportunity to lead entire projects or significant work packages.

You will be part of a team of engineers responsible for the development of engine/powertrain products and processes. The engines are used in machine, industrial, marine and electric power applications.

In this role you will apply your knowledge of engine and/or machine design and configuration. As such you will be expected to work closely with internal and external customers in the mechanical and performance development groups and present engineering decisions at design and project reviews. You will provide technical leadership in your specialist field(s), demonstrating your extensive understanding of complex engineering concepts and technology applications.

Design Engineer Key Responsibilities:

Implementing design and integration ideas, machine configuration and design in accordance with applicable design guides and standards.

Managing positive BOM for multiple engine and/or machine builds.

Managing build and mechanical durability issues.

Self-management of assigned tasks to agreed customer critical requirements, delivering high quality work to documented or novel processes within agreed timescales.

demonstrate knowledge of manufacturability considerations for engineering changes and releases and demonstrated examples of correct application of same;

have the ability to take the lead in technical discussions, to specify component requirements and to understand the interactions which influence engine performance.

Demonstrate a deep understanding of the structural dynamics and Virtual Product Development (VPD) tools to improve engine or machine structure designs;

demonstrate knowledge of engine fundamentals;

demonstrate the ability to interpret data, identify quality issues and understand performance interactions;

Demonstrate excellent written and presentation skills;

have the ability to listen and adapt to the audience requirements and lead technical presentations with authority.

Have the ability to build relationships and communicate at all levels of the business.
