An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Mechanical Design Engineer to join a Consumer Products brand who are looking to further enhance their NPD team. This role is a part of a companywide expansion plan and will see the NPD team, as well as other departments grow further over the next 18 months.

  • Communicate ideas quickly and effectively using a combination of sketching, CAD layouts, 3D models and working prototypes to evaluate potential solutions
  • Apply a thorough understanding of a variety of manufacturing processes including injection moulding, sheet metal and machining
  • Consideration of ergonomics, usability and FMEA elements within the development process including construction, testing and validation of prototypes

Key skills required:
  • Degree in Mechanical Engineering or Product Design
  • 5+ years commercial experience ideally working on consumer based products
  • Electro-mechanical product design
  • CAD - SolidWorks but other major packages are acceptable
  • Electronics integration
  • Injection moulding, metal fabrication and machined part design
  • Concept design skills including hand sketching

The salary for this position is up to £45,000 + benefits, depending on experience.
