Job Summary

Job Description

AutoCAD design engineer with a mechanical bias required to work for an engineering company based in Bury.

It is essential that you have experience of designing and detailing OEM turnkey projects, as this role will be designing bespoke machinery for clients across the World. The role will involve mechanical and pneumatic design calculations and you should therefore be from a mechanical design background, although it would be classed as a real bonus if you also had some electrical design experience (As you will be designing the machines from start to finish, using existing templates from previous machines and while the company does have electrical design specialists, any knowledge of electrical design on top of the primary mechanical experience would be good.)

This role will have a customer facing slant and will be occasionally be on site visits during the specification or modification stage of the process.

The company is currently using 2d AutoCAD LT but the intention is to upgrade to AutoCAD inventor in the very near future so it is assumed that the successful candidate would have a knowledge of both 2d design and 3d modelling. You will play a part in the transition process and ideally will assist and contribute to the migration towards Inventor. In addition, this role will develop over the next 3-5 years and we are looking to talk with candidates who have the ability to move into the (Hands on technical) design manager position - the company only have a small design team but with the existing design manager due to retire in the next couple of years, they are keen to succession plan.

Experience: educated to HND (Or equivalent level) in mechanical engineering with a working knowledge of AutoCAD inventor, MS Office and general CRM systems.

Working week is 38 hours, 7:45am to 4:45pm Monday to Thursday and 7:45am to 12:30pm on a Friday.
