As the Senior Test Engineer, this role will offer you progression, training and a chance to join a prestigious, well respected organisation in which you will be enabled to reach your full potential.

The Senior Test Engineer role offers real diversity and variety, where one minute you'll be in the lab undertaking some precision measurements and the next you'll be at a client's manufacturing facility, managing a time critical testing project. Strong communication and project management skills are at the heart of this role. You'll have constant interaction and engagement with clients at a variety of levels, from technicians to Directors. This role is perfect for an engineer with a mechanical bias who is looking to apply their technical ability in a client focused role and gain more responsibility for the projects they undertake.

You will also support the Team Manager providing quotations, managing chargeable Testing Projects, planning of Test workload through the laboratory, alignment with Lean Metrics, supervising test work on a defined range of products to agreed quality, standards and timescale. In addition you'll review, accurate and completed test reports and contribute to evaluate test products primarily for safety, efficiency, fit for purpose and/or bespoke customer requirements.
