Engineers & Junior Engineers

  • Salary for this position is: £25,000-£50,000, plus discretionary bonus & benefits


Waterbeach, near Cambridge.

As an Engineer or Junior Engineer, you will be exposed to all aspects of special purpose machine building; you will be supported in your work and development while at the same time you will be expected to show excellent initiative and learn quickly.

Engineers have a greater experience and greater responsibility on projects, still with plenty of scope for learning and development. Junior Engineers have a degree or equivalent qualification in engineering and are very capable individuals with a willingness to learn. All engineers have a high interest in automation, product handling and special purpose machinery, and, in general, thoroughly enjoy engineering.

These positions will ideally suit engineers and graduate engineers who have the ability to design with a good knowledge of 3D CAD (Solidworks); they include hands-on work and involve travel in the UK (and maybe overseas). A basic understanding of electrical control systems and an interest in PLC programming is desirable; as is a positive attitude, a flexible approach to problem-solving and the ability to communicate at all levels.

The Role

Key activities of the roles are:

  • Working closely with the Senior Engineers on a variety of projects
  • Liaising with others in the design team, other departments, clients and contractors
  • Reading and understanding design specifications and technical drawings
  • Preparing and monitoring project schedules
  • Designing and detailing systems and products using 3D CAD (Solidworks)
  • Developing test rigs and prototype equipment
  • Assisting with production build
  • Commissioning and Acceptance Testing the final product or system
  • Researching suitable solutions and estimating costs and timescales
  • Understanding and working to BS and EN standards, Machinery Directive and CE regulations
  • Preparing product documentation
  • Procuring parts and monitoring costs and budgets


Experience will vary between Engineers and Junior Engineers. As a right candidate, you will have:

  • A degree in Engineering or equivalent qualification in an engineering field
  • An interest in automation, product handling, or special purpose machinery in an industrial manufacturing environment
  • A good knowledge of 3D CAD and 2D Engineering drawings (Solidworks or similar)
  • A structured and organised approach to manage projects
  • A basic understanding of electrical control systems
  • A capability in PLC programming would be advantageous, but not essential
  • The willingness to travel nationally and internationally
  • A full UK driving licence
