JOB DESCRIPTION

SENIOR FUEL SYSTEMS ENGINEER IN DERBYSHIRE

Location Type Salary
Derbyshire Contract £40 - £45ph
  • Reference: 009054
  • Contact: Natalie Dass
  • Tel: 0121 230 1070

We are seeking a Senior Engineer – Fuel Injection System. This role will suit an individual looking for an opportunity to develop their career within a fast paced organisation at the cutting edge of engine design and development.

You will be responsible for alternative fuel injection system research activities as well as taking a multitude of new conventional engine fuel systems and components from concept to flawless launch, ensuring a robust system/component sign-off meeting all regulatory, quality, cost and timing requirements.

Senior Fuel Systems Engineer Role:

Working within a dynamic engineering-focused team, you will be responsible to lead the end-to-end engineering activities (research, development, delivery, and launch) relating to fuel injection system.

You will also need to support in-house quality, manufacturing and service teams in resolving complex technical issues arising as a result of warranty and/or issues that lead to engineering change as the permanent solution, creating all-in-all robust product of world class quality.

Senior Fuel Systems Engineer Responsibilities:

With the supports from the wider propulsion team, you are expected to lead and deliver following aspects:

Planning and organisation:
Create and maintain project plan for fuel injection system based on cascaded targets and allocated resource.
Coordinate with key stakeholders (e.g. programme, purchasing, supplier) for seamlessly project delivery.
Support programme gateway reviews with technical evidence and cost status.
Provide effective and timely escalation/status report through clear communication to management.

Research and Development:
Keep on track of the state-of-the-art technical development of fuel injection system.
Update and maintain technology benchmarking database.
Create clean sheet concept design taking the first-principle approach.
Plan and execute Proof-of-Concept assessment either through test campaign, or/and first-principle analysis and simulation.

Design and Release:
Work in a simultaneous engineering environment to support product development, ensuring design for service and achieving quality by design.
Elicit requirements for fuel injection system based on cascaded performance and cost targets.
Create system and component specifications and designs based on agreed requirements with key stakeholders.
Commission relevant analysis tools to support data driven design decisions.
Develop system and component FMEAs, and DVPs.
Coordinate and supervise DVP activities (e.g. analytical, simulation, and rig/engine/machine testing).
Resolve engineering issues using structured problem-solving methodologies (e.g. Global 8D, DMAIC).
Manage suppliers via the APQP process; deliver prototypes and PPAP parts to schedule, and fulfil quality and performance requirements.
Support achievement of business`s quality and warranty targets.

Senior Fuel Systems Engineer Requirements:

In addition to a passion for engineering, a proven track record of delivery, and a desire to be ‘hands-on` with projects from concept to completion, you will:
Have a degree in an associated mechanical engineering discipline, with a sound understanding of Mechanical Engineering principles (showing an attention to detail, and being data driven).
>8 years of relevant industry experience.
Have a sound grasp of the engine product development cycle, and expertise in engine system and component specification, design, development and sign-off (using relevant tools).
Demonstrate good project and supplier management skills, with good commercial awareness.
Be able to work well under pressure and to meet tight deadlines.
Demonstrate an ability to communicate clearly and concisely at all levels.
Show flexibility - the role requires travel to customer and supplier sites.
Be willing to contribute in a dynamic, collaborative, and cross-discipline team setting.

Role specific:
Fundamental understanding of fuel injection system operating principles (e.g. mechanical/electromechanical design, thermodynamics, and tribology).
Extensive experience in delivering high pressure fuel system projects for internal combustion engine applications.
Demonstratable proficiency in use of commercially available 2D drawing and 3D Modelling package with knowledge of mechanical engineering GD&T and manufacturing processes.
Practical understanding of design and calibration trade-off between engine performance, fuel economy and emissions.
Good understanding of fuels and emissions regulatory landscape.
Knowledge and experience in Model-Based-System-Engineering is preferred.

Benefits:

In addition to an excellent salary and career progression and development opportunities, our Client offers an excellent pension scheme, medical insurance and dental care schemes, access to the company`s healthy living centre and 33 days annual leave.

This vacancy is only available to Candidates with relevant experience as detailed in the job description. Due to volume of applications, we are unable to respond to applicants who do not possess the required skills and experience. Recent Graduates who do not have the required level of industry experience need not apply.

Candidates must be authorised to work in the country where this role is located BEFORE making an application.
