Mechanical Design Team Lead

£45,000 - £50,000 - Chester

If you are looking to take on more responsibility in terms of managing people whilst still working on hands-on mechanical design then this is the opportunity for you.

You will work on the design of special purpose equipment and automation for the automotive industry whilst leading a team of six highly technical design engineers. This role offers the best of both worlds; you will still be able to do the hands-on mechanical design/GD&Ts/FEA etc but you will also manage a team of six including training, mentoring and appraisals.

To be successful in this challenging role requires a highly technical and driven person, capable of overcoming hurdles with good leadership and people management skills.

The company is a world leader in the design and manufacture of automated robotic machinery for the automotive industry. The company is an extremely stable business currently focused on product development and innovation. They believe in developing their employees and promoting from within by creating succession plans to help their staff progress either upwards or sideways, depending on aspirations.

If you are looking for a new challenge in a varied role, please don't hesitate to contact our senior consultant in design & project engineering James Taylor on .

Other job titles: design manager, R&D manager, design engineer, development engineer, applications engineer, lead engineer, technical support engineer, materials engineer, materials scientist.
