job description

We are looking for a Mechanical Facilities Engineer with an in-depth knowledge of engineering design/manufacturing, project management and facility change management to work in Huddersfield on a 1 year contract. If this is of interest to you then please apply below!

Working again within the Test Technology Function in Huddersfield, supporting a team of 9 Engineers due to a permanent vacancy that has yet to be backfilled since Q4 of 2018. You will need to be experienced in working with Customers; whether internal or external from design through to install and commissioning.

Previous experience of working in a Test environment (specifically turbocharger/rotating machine testing) would be advantageous although is not essential. The role sits within the Global Test Technology Team, supporting turbo testing facilities to ensure equipment is suitably maintained and upgraded to meet ever changing business requirements.

The role will also support daily requirements of the lab to ensure operational efficiency and safety.
You must have strong communication skills, working with product engineers and manufacturers 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 Mechanical Engineers you must cooperate and take guidance from those around them whilst challenging capabilities to ensure continuous improvement. The working environment is fast paced with the need to manage multiple projects of varying priority and complexity, there is therefore a requirement to prioritise own work while acting cohesively within the team to ensure success.

* Previous experience of interpreting test procedures and methods
* Working knowledge of HSE standards to ensure safe working practices (e.g. lifting equipment, ergonomics, hot working and working at heights)
* Decision quality - Making good and timely decisions that keep the organization moving forward
* Effective communication - Developing and delivering multi-mode communications that convey a clear understanding of the unique needs of different audiences
