  • Understanding of metallurgy and material science
  • Understanding of machining processes and their relevance in mechanical design
  • Experience with CAD and producing technical drawings
  • High levels of personal accountability and ownership, to effectively deliver on challenging and ambitious targets
  • Strong presentation (both of technical solutions and data) and reporting skills
  • Ability to focus on detail to fully understand issues and drive improvement

Beneficial Requirements:

  • Experience using FEA tools
  • Experience using CFD tools
  • Experience in hydraulics/servo valve and proportional valve design
  • Understanding of Additive Manufacturing process
  • Basic understanding of wider system technology including electronics, software and control, and its impact on mechanical design
  • Experience working in Automotive, particularly with suspension and vehicle dynamics

Key Responsibilities:

  • Design of prototype suspension sub-assemblies
  • Management of manufacturing documentation, including CAD, drawings, bill of materials and AM build files
  • Finding and communicating with suppliers for prototype manufacture
  • Providing design support throughout manufacture, assembly and testing
  • Where required provide the above capability to support other projects, such as valves, brake by wire and flight controls.
  • Working as part of a multi-disciplinary team to deliver world leading products.
