Job Description

Technical Lead – Aerospace


c.£60k + 8% bonus, relocation package available

Rotating Machinery is quite an open idea, the fact is that every industry requires machinery that rotates. Within this role, and within the Aerospace industry in general, rotating machinery boils down to Propulsion or Power Generation, the ability to create movement. Coupled with the rotating elements, certain factors including stress or vibration need to also be considered for obvious reasons. 

Based in the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside, my client is a major player in the aerospace industry and wants to bring on board someone like you to become a major player in their engineering team. You can probably imagine the opportunities for career development are huge as this company operates in 12 countries around the world.

Within the relatively small engineering R&D team you will be responsible for the final approval of projects being developed by the lead engineers. As such you will need to draw on your previous experience in mechanical design and be able to juggle multiple projects simultaneously. This is a very visible role in the business and you certainly won’t be bored as the company is increasing their sales year-on-year so the New Product Development function is extremely busy.

As well as design, the company manufactures on site so you may need to involve yourself with manufacturing issues where an engineering design input is needed, perform as the signatory on various technical elements and operate as the subject matter expert for rotating machinery. 

please contact me directly and don’t worry if your CV isn’t up to date as I’d welcome a chat with you on 01257 244744.
