      Main purpose of the job:
      To work within multi-disciplinary teams on major development projects, applying your engineering abilities to implement sophisticated technologies into new products.
      Type of work undertaken by the division/group

      We combine highly creative lateral thinking with excellent technical skills and a broad base of industry experience to form a powerful development team. Our work ranges from undertaking complete product developments from concept to market, to consulting with our clients on their technology, strategy or development processes.

      The Industrial & Scientific Products group specialises in the design and development of complex products serving a range of industry sectors including:

      * Cleantech
      * Scientific instruments & sensors
      * Mechatronics
      * Defence & Security
      * Healthcare products
      * Industrial systems

      The main areas of expertise within this multidisciplinary group are electromechanical systems design, numerical analysis & mechanical engineering, analogue & digital electronics, electric motor & drive technologies and the management of new product development.
      Specific responsibilities

      This is an excellent opportunity for an engineer with the ambition and ability to achieve excellent results in a highly demanding industry and to find novel and radical solutions to new and existing problems under tough commercial and time restraints.

      You will be taking the lead mechanical design role on multidisciplinary projects, including hands-on product development, design of mechanical systems and components, systems engineering, as well as taking the lead role in planning, proposal & concept generation, project management and liaison with clients. You will also use your strong creative and technical skills to make a significant contribution to development projects and to participate in consultancy work within client companies.

      You will be expected to liase with others across many engineering disciplines and be responsible for specifying, designing and executing experimental programmes with teams of scientists and technicians. You will manage tasks within projects requiring delivery within tight timescales and budgets, managing both internal and external resources. There are opportunities for this side of the role to develop rapidly into management of projects including having full responsibility for delivery to our clients.

You will have a creative approach to problem solving and concept generation, an appreciation of the use of engineering analysis tools in product development and have had hands-on experience of 3D CAD (preferably Pro/Engineer Wildfire and Solidworks). You should also have detailed knowledge of rapid prototyping methods and numerical analysis using FEA and CFD. Direct experience of product development in the power generation or cleantech industry would be beneficial as well as an in depth knowledge of fluid dynamics and thermal management. A second degree with a high level of practical experience would be advantageous.
