How would you like to join a leading industrial automation company with a world wide client basis and a reputation for high quality products specified by many major manufacturers?

This is a company at the cutting edge of production and industrial automation with offices and manufacturing facilities throughout the world. The company prides itself in always leading the field in new technology and innovation which keeps it ahead of its competitors and you could be a part of this world famous organisation.

The company is seeking a Mechanical Engineer to join their team who are based in their European headquarters to work on special projects.

The role is to work on the projects which sit outside of the company\'s current product range, developing specialist solutions to either the customers specific requirements or, alternatively, to meet new market needs as the automation industry develops. The key is to keep the business at the cutting edge of the sector using your ideas and vision to produce cost effective and commercially viable products for existing or new applications.

Working from the company's headquarters in Milton Keynes you will be in regular contact with the business's design teams in a number of countries across Europe. Your responsibilities will include review of technical briefs for custom solutions generated by your colleagues to establish the commercial viability and technical practicality of proposals. You will also investigate and test new products developed by the company to be added to the product range. You will become a subject matter expert for the company\'s product range, but also be looking at the next generation of products and the changing requirements of the sector.

All in all this is a challenging role where no two days are the same and you have the opportunity to engage with your passion for engineering research and development.

To be considered you must demonstrate:

* Degree level education to a minimum of 2:1 in Mechanical engineering

* Ability to manage your own workload, ideally within a project orientated environment

* Happy to travel to European destinations as required

* Experience of creating technical reports

* Good knowledge of MS word applications

* Customer facing skills

The company is especially keen to hear from candidates with any of the following: Experience of working as an engineer in a volume manufacturing company; experience of working as a designer in a precision manufacturing enviroment; knowledge of CE standards

PLEASE NOTE: the company is not able to sponsor candidates from outside of the EU in this post.

In return the company is offering a competitive basic salary, holiday pay, pension, free on site parking, continued professional development and an opportunity to work with one of the leaders in the sector.


Please contact with your current CV and a cover letter explaining why you should be considered for the vacancy.

I look forward to hearing from you.
