Mechanical Design Engineer


Job Description:

Mechanical Design Engineer

Salary:   £45,000 - £50,000


In today’s society, the longevity of the planet is at the forefront of most people’s minds. When it comes to work this isn’t always the case. What if you could say that you work for a company that is focused on its carbon footprint? The company’s main facility has installed over 256 photovoltaic solar panels and is designed to harvest rainwater for cleaning and toilets. In addition, they have swapped plastic for paper cups and installed an air source heat pump to provide eco-friendly heating.

Due to the continued growth of the company, there is a requirement to expand the Engineering Department by hiring a Mechanical Design Engineer. The successful candidate will be involved with all activities ranging from machinery design to R&D, product development testing, and cost savings.

In this role as Mechanical Design Engineer, you’ll be tasked with “Owning the Product” and will take ownership of the design, development, and issuing of machines for manufacture. You will be the creative mind who designs and creates bespoke machinery, so no two jobs are the same.

What we would like from the Mechanical Design Engineer:

  • Working knowledge of 3D CAD systems, preferably SolidWorks
  • Degree in Mechanical Engineering or similar
  • Experience of the Full Product Life Cycle
  • Experience with machinery, heavy equipment or moving parts design (desirable)
  • 5 years’ experience


What we offer:

  • 35 hour week
  • 24 days annual leave + Christmas shutdown + 8 bank holidays
  • 8% company pension contribution
  • Annual performance-related bonus
  • Annual pay review


If this opportunity as the Mechanical Design Engineer is of interest to you, don’t hesitate and get in touch asap!
