Fulltime

We're recruiting for a Mechanical Engineer with a strong background in Systems Design to join an industry leading marine design & consultancy organisation, specialising in all mechanical and auxiliary systems for the large yachts industry.

You'll be working on cutting edge mechanical systems designs for a range of vessels, including legacy work, boat refits and new designs.

Working closely with the mechanical department, fitters and engineers - you'll not only need strong understanding of design, specification and integration, but also good hands-on mechanical engineering knowledge to advise the team of installers.

Good understanding of 3D pipe routing is essential - specific CAD package knowledge is not a pre-requirement, so if you've used AutoCAD, Siemens NX, Solidworks, CATIA or similar, that knowledge will transfer and training will be provided.

Good working knowledge of onboard ship systems and their design and integration - propulsion, gear boxes, drives, cooling and water etc.

Experience with OEM equipment integration and bespoke design of mechanical deck equipment (Davits, Cranes, Hatches, Hydraulics etc).

Experience in the marine industry is essential - MOD, commercial, leisure marine, superyacht, power boats, RIBs. Just as long as you have knowledge of what goes in a boat and how it fits together!

A degree in mechanical engineering would be advantageous, but not essential - experience is valued equally with a strong background in mechanical systems and design engineering for the marine industry.

It's a really exciting time to join the business at a crucial stage of growth. Work loads are high and it's only going to get busier, so you'll be in at the deep end. There's frequent travel around the UK and abroad, so your own car is essential and the willingness to travel a few times a month. If you're interested to find out more please get in touch today!
