Competent use of 3D design software packages (preferably with strong familiarisation in Solidworks/Creo) is required as is the ability to clearly illustrate/communicate technical ideas.

  • Hands-on experience in the assembly of prototypes and subsequent testing

To be successful in this role you will be a proactive individual who works well on their own initiative and as part of a collaborative team. You will have good attention to detail and problem-solving skills along with the ability to manage multiple, complex projects simultaneously.
