Mechanical Design Engineer - Automotive

My client is part of a global enterprise that can boast a presence in most countries around the world. This Division, based in Leicester has a near 150 year history in its own right and can rightfully boast over 60 years as the revolutionary leader in their field. Their products are recognised for the highest quality and performance as an innovative systems partner for the automobile industry. They are based in a self contained facility but with access to the larger group's resources as and when needed.

They are currently looking to appoint a Mechanical Design Engineer who ideally has a background in the automotive or off-highway vehicle market. The role calls for candidates to be able to develop innovative solutions for a range of demanding customers. Work will cover component design through to complete systems that will integrate with the whole vehicle. You will liaise closely with the manufacturing and assembly team internally as well as suppliers and demanding customers. The company products have been showcased in the media, so product integrity is key!

This role would ideally suit candidates who have a passion for their discipline and are able to demonstrate examples of unique and innovative concepts capable of being manufactured and assembled. A background in automotive design is highly desirable. Alternatively, you may have experience of hydraulics or pneumatics and be capable of applying that knowledge to my client's products.

In return, the company is able to offer an attractive salary and benefits package (including substantial %age bonus), together with the opportunity of developing your career with a global brand
