job description

We are looking for an experienced Design Engineer to join the team to support with much of the Electrical Auto CAD work, along side 4 other team members.

They will be supporting on a specific project for a new test facility for which allowance has been made up to January 2020. The bulk of the more straight forward CAD work will be carried out by another contractor, however this contractor will need to be more of a decision maker, someone who can proffer suggestions and add more to the design philosophy behind the project.

Electrical / Electronics Design Engineer - Test Technology (Contingent Position)
Experienced Electrical / Electronic Engineer (5 years plus industrial experience) with an in-depth knowledge of engineering design/manufacturing.

Previous experience of working in a Test environment (specifically turbocharger/rotating machine testing) would be advantageous although is not essential.
The role is primarily focused on working as part of a small team of Mechanical Engineers, Electrical Engineers and software Engineers to develop turbocharger performance testing facilities located in our Huddersfield testing laboratory. The scope of the design skill required, includes the design of low voltage control systems (up to 400VAC), safety PLC integration and programming, distributed instrumentation and control design, using a mixture of analogue, digital and bus based protocols.

The individual must have strong communication and teamwork skills, working with the design team to define scope of works/specifications, design solutions, procure components and assemble/test in alignment with business needs. Working within a highly experienced team of Engineers the successful candidate must cooperate and take guidance from those around them whilst challenging capabilities to ensure continuous improvement.

* Devising, documenting and carrying out subsystem testing prior to full system assembly in the test facility.
* Developing innovative solutions to potentially complex measurement or control problems.
* Carrying out DFMEA or similar assessments as part of a team to ensure designs meet functional and safety requirements.
* Working with the team and project leader to agree time / resource plans, consideration given to scope of work and project risk. Reporting of progress vs plan and developing mitigation plans as necessary.
