An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Senior Design Engineer to join the engineering team of a leading manufacturer of construction equipment. My client employs 12,000 people on four continents, selling products in 150 countries through 2,000 dealer depot locations.

My client has always invested heavily in research and development, keeping their company at the cutting edge of innovation. Today, my client has some of the finest engineering facilities across the globe and produces over a range of 300 machines.

As a result of growing demands for their award-winning range of diesel engines and a number of exciting engine development programmes, they are seeking a Senior Design Engineer. This position will suit an individual looking for an opportunity to develop their career within a fast paced organisation at the cutting edge of engine design and development.

You will be responsible for taking new engine systems and components from concept to flawless launch, ensuring a robust system/component sign-off meeting all regulatory, quality, cost and timing requirements.

The role:

Deliver engine systems/components from concept to delivery – from specification, through analysis, testing and development, to engineering sign-off.

Your Responsibilities as a Senior Design Engineer:

Create system and component specifications and design (cascaded from programme targets) using/commissioning the relevant analysis tools to support data driven design decisions.

Develop system and component FMEAs, and DVPs.

Co-ordinate and supervise DVP tests/analyses (analytical, rig, engine and machine)

Resolve engineering issues using recognised methodologies

Supplier management:

* Work in a simultaneous engineering environment to support the development plan, ensuring design for manufacture and assembly.
* Manage suppliers via the APQP process
* Work with suppliers to deliver prototypes and PPAP parts to schedule, meeting quality and
* performance requirements


In addition to a passion for engineering, a proven track record of delivery, and a desire to be ‘hands-on’ with projects from concept to completion, the candidates will:

* Have a degree in an associated mechanical engineering discipline, with a sound understanding of Mechanical Engineering principles (showing an attention to detail, and being data driven).
* Have a sound grasp of the engine product development cycle, and expertise in engine system and component specification, design, development and sign-off (using relevant tools)
* Ideally, have experience with an engine manufacturer or Tier 1 supplier
* Demonstrate good project and supplier management skills, and good commercial awareness
* Be able to work well under pressure and to meet tight deadlines
* Demonstrate an ability to communicate clearly and concisely at all levels

To say thank you for your hard work, my client will work with you to support your career progression and development. They will also provide a competitive salary, company pension scheme, medical insurance and dental care schemes, access to the company’s healthy living centre and 33 days annual leave.
