COMMUTABLE LOCATIONS: Coventry, Northampton, Birmingham, Stratford Upon Avon, Coventry, Birmingham, Worcester, Wolverhampton, Leicester
JOB SPECIFICATION: Mechanical Design Engineer - NPD : Product Design
· Being an experienced Mechanical Design Engineer you will have already gained practical experience in product design from conceptual ideas (NPD). This could be a blank piece of paper exercise
· Where you are in your design and development career, you will be able to support Senior and Lead Mechanical Engineers on the mechanical aspect of product design, but lend your vital knowledge and experience to more Junior Mechanical Engineers. We do take on Graduates Mechanical Engineers, so we have to have a good breadth of experience within our mechanical design and development teams
· You will be able to work with our clients (OEM's) to help develop their ideas from scratch and make them reality
· Work with our in-house engineering support team of: Model Makers , CNC Machinists, Toolmakers and the Test Laboratory

· A proven New Product Development (NPD) background, ideally working for another consultancy or an OEM. Many of our engineers come from Medical, Consumer Goods, Industrial and the emerging Electric Vehicle markets.
· Competent 3D modelling skills (we use SolidWorks but you might have experience in Solid Edge, Pro Engineer or AutoCAD etc. We are open if you are the right Mechanical Engineer)
· Finite element analysis (FEA) experience (we use ANSYS here)
Also of benefit would be strong A'Levels in related subjects i.e. Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry - but this is less important the more experienced you are.
