The Company:

If you're a practical, hands on Mechanical Engineer with experience of Pneumatics and Electronics, wanting a job which is really quite different to the norm, this is an extremely exciting opportunity.

The training period will be lengthy (up to two years) with some overseas travel, but once you are fully up to speed and capable of installing and repairing these intricate systems, there will be regular overseas travel to developing countries such as Africa and Asia: so you should be the kind of individual who will embrace this type of travel.

Job Responsibilities:

  • To support a small multi-functional team in R&D activities to develop high quality, innovative medical devices for unique and challenging environments.

Preferred Skills:

  • A sound knowledge of mechanical, electronics and pneumatic engineering
  • The ability to assemble product, test and check for quality standards, operate machinery and even pack a box in the warehouse for dispatch. This is a really varied role in a small team where your engineering and technical skills will be fully utilised but where you will need to be completely flexible to do anything the team needs.

Personal Attributes:

  • HND, HNC or equivalent in a medical, mechanical or other relevant engineering discipline.
  • Experience: a minimum of two year's experience in a similar role.
  • Technical Skills: Sound engineering knowledge. understanding of best manufacturing processes, basic electronics and pneumatics.
