The Just Recruitment Group are currently recruiting for a Senior Mechanical Engineer.

Office-based in Colchester, Essex, or in Theale, Berkshire, you will work closely with our electronics, board layout and other mechanical and thermal engineers at all the different stages of board development, for both rugged and more benign environments. You will also be involved in enhancing our internal design and development procedures and in mentoring more junior mechanical and thermal engineers. Most designs are completed by an individual engineer, and as a result, you will be responsible for testing your designs and ensuring that they are successfully put into production.

Note that while the role can be based in Theale, various tasks need to be performed in our Colchester factory, so trips to Colchester will be required on a fairly regular basis.

Essential Skills / Experience:
• You must be educated to Bachelor degree level with industry experience of designing small or precision components for electronic product packaging or similar environments.
• You must have designed to close tolerances and understand their effects in real-world production.
• You will be a good problem-solver, with the ability to reason and operate independently, but also be comfortable working with multi-disciplinary teams to reach good engineering solutions.
• You must be able to explain your ideas and solutions to other engineering staff and technical management, and be able to guide the more junior engineers.
• You need a good appreciation of change control procedures, e.g. ECO/ECN systems, and design data management.

Desirable, but not Essential, Skills / Experience:
* A good level of familiarity with SolidWorks.
* Strong practical, “hands-on” engineering skills.
* Some awareness of thermal management techniques, especially in electronic product design.
* Previous involvement in environmental testing, e.g. shock, vibration or thermal tests.
* A background in product development of ruggedised electronic products for commercial or military applications.

Benefits:
* Very competitive salary.
* Optional stakeholder pension scheme (with a generous company contribution).
* Life assurance.
* Private health insurance.
* Relocation allowance where appropriate.
