The Engineering Services department focuses on consultancy projects from a variety of global customers, ranging from top OEM's to small start-ups with projects that vary drastically in scope and complexity.

The role is based in the UK, but works can be undertaken off site and has a large potential for global travel.

Reporting to the Engineering Manager/Chief Engineer, you will be required to work as part of the rapidly expanding Engineering Services and design team, undertaking highly technical design and analysis work on a range of transmission systems spanning various industries such as automotive, wind and rail.

Transmission Design Engineer/Senior Transmission Design Engineer Role:

Depending on your level of experience, you would be expected to carry out some or all of the following:

Design aspects of the transmission dependant on speciality.

Create detailed technical engineering and CAD drawings using CAE.

Check and inspect drawings.

Provide technical input to other members of the project team.

Support the Technical Lead in all aspects of consultancy projects.

Be responsible for preparation of project deliverables.

Take responsibility for general technical communication with customers.

Ensure that project needs such as the requirement for additional resources are communicated to the Technical Lead.
