Purpose of the Job:

This position will provide the right candidate with an opportunity to be involved in a fast-expanding environment where personal achievements are recognised and rewarded through personal development and professional growth.

The primary purpose of this position is to create, develop and verify product designs as part of the Mechanical Engineering function group.  This role requires a confident, enthusiastic, determined and organised individual who is keen to develop their career in a versatile environment.

The successful candidate will have excellent technical and communication skills, taking a pivotal role in solving improving and verifying product designs.  They will have a flair for structuring information and an attention to detail.  They will also have a strong delivery focus, using their technical knowledge and mechanical engineering tools to ensure that designs meet requirements and to minimise risk.


Key Accountabilities:

  • Lead the development of mechanical systems and products by applying principles of mechanics, thermodynamics, hydraulics, heat transfer, and materials engineering.
  • Design and implement appropriate validation and verification testing for engineering sign-off.
  • Support the resolution of engineering problems including support of post-test analysis activity.
  • Provide input to and review engineering drawings and CAD models.
  • Provide engineering support to manufacturing teams during product assembly.
  • Develop materials and designs, through the procurement process, internal manufacturing processes, on to test and through post-test analysis.
  • Provide input to DFMEA and design review based on failure modes (DRBFM) processes to enable identification of product risks.
  • Write technical reports on failure modes and mechanisms, interpreting from literature, test data, post-test analysis (PTA) reports, CAE analyses and materials analyses.
  • Engage in team-based solving of engineering problems using root cause analysis tools.
  • Develop materials and designs through the procurement and internal manufacturing processes on to test and post-test analysis.
