Job description

Are you a hands-on Mechanical Design Manager wanting to manage a team of specialised design engineers, within a leading organisation based in Essex?

Then look no further as I am currently working with one of my most exciting clients who are who specialise in the designing, testing, supplying and commissioning of specialised process and packaging equipment which are used mainly for packaging lines for aerosols with a high proportion for the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. They are currently recruiting for a Mechanical Design Manager to join their R&D department based in Essex, due to the volume of work and growth within the business.

As the Mechanical Design Manager you will be leading a small team of mechanical design engineers whilst working with project managers and mangers from other divisions. You will work within the drawing office, preparing and issuing drawings for manufacture and working from user requirement specifications and internal specifications, so it is important for you to have a strong understanding of engineering and the process involved. Although you will be managing a team to ensure customer requirements are being met whilst delegating each task effectively, you may also be required to get hands-on (30% of the time)

In order to apply for the Mechanical Design Manager role, you must have the following:
- A mechanical engineering background and/or experience working within a mechanical engineering environment
- Experience in leading a team within a drawing office
- Experience in designing complex machinery, ideally within the packaging industry
- Extensive experience using CAD packages, ideally Autodesk Inventor but Solidworks, AutoCAD and/or any other mainstream CAD software will not be ruled out

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a well-established, successful company who are well known in the market and take great pride in their work.

Please note, this is not a Project Manager role.

If you are interested in the Mechanical Design Manager position based in Essex, please send an updated version of your CV to NMiskelly@RedlineGroup.Com or call Neena Miskelly on 01582 878855 for further information, otherwise we always welcome the opportunity to discuss other engineering jobs.
