Structural Engineer Derbyshire £35,000 – 40,000 6% Pension 24 Days Annual Leave My client are a premier manufacture of highly innovative and complex mechanical systems used in the Aerospace, Defence and Power Industries. The company employs over 100 staff at their Derbyshire site, turns over £30 million a year and have an incredible trading history tracing back over 100 years. The business is a true engineering company carrying both conceptual design of their product range and manufacturing in house. They have fifteen in house design engineers many of whom have been sponsored through chartership in their time with the business. Their design work consists of a large variation of first principle mechanical and structural engineering calculations including stress, strain, loadings in metal, structural and fluid dynamics making this opportunity an incredibly satisfying role for true engineers. I am looking to speak to Structural Engineers with a mechanical (not civil) bias who love conceptual design and carrying out the mechanical engineering calculations to prove the concept works, this role has little CAD modelling in it so will not suit designers who want a role focused on CAD. The business has a great culture and heavily foster personal development within their staff, even though they are a large business they still retain the sense of family and togetherness that makes people love working for them. Please apply online for immediate consideration. The Role As a Structural Engineer in this business you will be reporting to the Engineering Manager. He has been with the business for over a decade so can guide and mentor you on their products as you learn in the role. The team also has some true expert conceptual design engineers in it who will act as your mentors on early projects before you take on complete projects of your own. The role requires you to take a customer brief for a required system from the sales team. This system could consist of a fabricated enclosure, ducting, structural steelwork and some form of ventilation system. You will then carry out all the problem solving and calculations to ensure the system will perform as expected and to ensure it adheres to all environmental and technical specifications required. These calculations could be loading calculations, stressing of bolts, structural calculations, and deflections in metals or fluid dynamic calculations. You will produce any specifications required for third party equipment packages and produce a sketch to show the design in concept. There can also be some FE work done on Nastran or Ansys but this is a smaller part of the role. Once the conceptual design is complete your design is passed to the drawing office who produce the CAD Models and detailed drawings for manufacturing. The Candidate I am looking to recruit a Structural Engineer who has a passion for conceptual design, enjoy problem solving and get a buzz out of calculations. The client is open to people who have been involved in any kind of machinery, process or structural design. You should have a mechanical engineering calculation of HNC or above. The Benefits £35,000 – 40,000 A highly experienced team and manager to learn from. 6% Pension 24 Days Annual Leave Working for a recognised name in their field with over 100 years trading history.
