Job Description

Senior Mechanical Design Engineer
North Manchester
£45 - 50k (Permanent role)

Are you looking for an "exciting challenge"?
Or how about a "fantastic opportunity"?

Just Google "Mechanical Design Engineer jobs" and it won't take you long to find one. There seems to be quite a few out there.

However, you know as well as I do that sometimes what starts as an exciting challenge can quite quickly become a repetitive tedium and a fantastic opportunity can turn out to be neither fantastic nor much of an opportunity.

So what's so special about this job?

Well, for a start, it will give you the opportunity to flex your engineering muscles by applying yourself to different engineering problems on a daily basis.

Why? Well my client's products need to integrate into their customer's equipment so you will need to work closely with these customers to ensure the final product performs as expected. As every application is different you will liaise between all departments and will need to be involved from the start of the project right through to completion.

As the senior engineer you'll juggle a number of small and medium sized projects managing them through to the production stage and, with short timescales of only a few weeks from start to finish, you'll be good at prioritising and managing your time accordingly.

As well as experience with a 3D CAD package such as SolidWorks or Inventor a real must is to have knowledge of the Pressure Equipment Directive and/or ATEX regulations along with the machinery directive. Experience in designing pressure equipment to design codes such as ASME VIII and EN13445 would be a distinct advantage for this role.

My client is part of a global organisation with a genuine ambition to develop the company and site further so this is a good time to get involved with them and progress your career.

So, if you'd like to work out for yourself whether this is an exciting challenge or fantastic opportunity then please give me a call on 01257 244740 to discuss further.
