Senior Development Engineer (Electromechanical)
Our client is looking for a Senior Development Engineer (Electromechanical)
To join a small to medium size enterprise with a total annual turnover of £20m+ that is split evenly across an established UK and an expanding European customer base. Focused upon providing both standard and bespoke air-movement solutions to the heating and ventilation markets, the company has identified a clear opportunity for rapid growth due to the requirements of tightening European legislation focused upon carbon reduction in residential and commercial dwellings. Benefitting from the financial stability of its UK based parent group (turnover c. £100m) the company is currently seeking graduate engineers with an academic and practical understanding of electronic systems.
Reporting to the Technical Director, your focus will be the hands-on development of air movement products to meet not only the generic needs of the low carbon heating and ventilation market but also the individual application requirements of specific customers. Following initial orientation to the company's electromechanical, electronic and control platforms your role will become highly interactive requiring you to interpret and translate both our product strategy and the individual application requirements of our customers into EU compliant product solutions. Naturally, to operate in this commercially interactive development environment you will need to demonstrate a practical knowledge of air movement product/application design principles and a structured approach to development, allied to a confident nature and excellent written and oral communication skills.
