  • Perform engineering hand calculations (including stress and stiffness) to substantiate the design of the product.
  • Work with the Stress team to analyse and resolve structural performance concerns in order to achieve weight and durability targets.
  • Drive the development and certification of all products, including formulating DVP's in collaboration with the Test & Certification function.
  • Day to day supervision of direct reports, including regular 1-2-1 meetings, team meetings, timesheet authorisation, holiday approval, sickness/absence meetings, goal and objective setting, personal development plans & appraisal reviews.
  • Develop relationships with key suppliers to deliver solutions, ensuring effective Design for Manufacture.
  • Liaise with Production to ensure effective Design for Assembly.
  • Manage multiple projects in parallel.
  • Ensure company procedures are followed, including the NPI and NPD process.
  • Continually challenge manufacturing processes and materials to ensure innovation & continuous improvement is achieved.

In order for your application to the Lead Design Engineer role to be considered, you'll need the following skills, experience and qualifications:

  • Mechanical Engineering degree, or similar suited to the above requirements.
  • Experience in leading, managing and/or supervising a team of Design Engineers.
  • Exceptional planning, organising and prioritising skills.
  • Experience working within the Aviation, Automotive or other highly regulated industrial manufacturing sector.
  • Ability to carry out engineering hand calculations.
  • Proven 3D CAD capability and experience, preferably in CATIA and SolidWorks

In return, the Lead Design Engineer will earn a very attractive salary and benefits package, alongside the chance to work with a forward thinking, dynamic business who are involved in some exceptionally high-end products.
