If you are an experienced Design Engineer looking to work for a growing innovative company in the North Dorset area this may be the role for you…

My client manufacture engine systems which are used mainly within the aerospace industry for a global client base and they are now looking to recruit a new Design Engineer to join the engineering team within the business.

This is a great opportunity for a degree level educated engineer with a minimum of 2 years experience to join a small design team where you will be able to have valuable input on the design process working with the inhouse machine shop where 95% of all parts used in the products are manufactured.

The role will offer you the opportunity to be involved in the whole product lifecycle involving some of the following duties:

  • Creating Bills of Materials
  • Concept Models
  • Engineering analysis: Stress Analysis, basic CFD, FMEA, Risk Analysis,
  • Writing Technical Reports/Manuals
  • Tooling Design
  • Liaising with suppliers

The design package that the company use is Solidworks, and previous experience of using this package is preferred although training can be required if the successful candidate has used an alternative 3D design package.

In return my client offers a competitive salary and benefits scheme including 22 days holiday, pension and medical healthcare plan.
