JOB DESCRIPTION

MECHANICAL DESIGN ENGINEER IN DARLINGTON

Location Type Salary
Darlington Contract 43.00
  • Reference: 009218
  • Contact: Graham Vockins
  • Tel: 0121 230 1070

Experienced Mechanical Design Engineer required for long-term contract position.

Initial assignment duration is 12 months with a possibility for extension.
This is a hybrid role, depending on the project the contractors will be required to work onsite a number of days per month. Under normal operating schedule the work can be 100% remote for some periods of time.

Job Summary:

Lead design and development for engineering assignments including products, parts, components, systems, or portions of major projects.
This product focused position applies specialized knowledge of engineering principles and design practices to create optimized design concepts and mechanical design specifications considering application, cost, weight, performance, reliability, durability, manufacturing, assembly, and serviceability.
This role effectively communicates the capability of a design concept to meet cross-functional requirements including assessment of alternative and competitive design concepts and works effectively across cross-functional disciplines to develop corporate and customer requirements including those required to resolve product issues.

Must-have competencies for this role:

• Engine system or component development ownership
• Recent experience with ICE (Industrial Customer Engineering) engine component design and development
• 3D CAD Modelling and design skills
• Independently work with all internal and external stakeholders (supplier, manufacturing etc.) to develop assigned system or component
• Engine component or system analysis experience is a must

Key Responsibilities:

• Obtains input and leads the negotiation with cross-functional and cross-discipline technical experts and senior-level designers to communicate the component and subsystem design intent through a thorough Design Review package/
• Leads the design decision making in the areas of component and subsystem design concept selection, concept optimization, and design specifications
• Sketch outline designs and use computer-aided design (CAD) for detailed design and models, generating parts lists and specifications
• Interpret engineering drawings, schematic diagrams, or formulas - Consider various factors of engineering drawings or diagrams, including use of the product, its environment, materials, the economics of production, safety, legal requirements, quality, production requirements, cost and ease of maintenance
• Applies and leads the execution of processes such as Critical Design Decisions, System Design and Validation Consideration Checklist, Design Review and tools such as iDFMEA, DVA, GD&T, CREO, ANSYS Workbench required to enable high quality subsystem-level design decision making and design refinement.
• Project management and long-term planning - Provides independent leadership of smaller business impact projects or ownership of complex components, products, systems or services with greater elements of ambiguity over the senior or lead engineer level and with full accountability to the project team.
• Delivers independent execution of established and emerging work processes and systems, while still developing technology or product knowledge.
• Leads the development and improvement of work processes and systems across a functional discipline area within a business unit site.
Qualifications and Competencies:
• Cross-Functional Design Integration - Translates the value package requirements that include the voices of many stakeholders into virtual designs, and communicates the capability of the design through an approved cross-functional design review.
• Mechanical Design of Mechanical Systems - Acquires and applies an in-depth understanding of mechanical systems through working knowledge that guides a designer`s ability to create innovative and sound design concepts to meet Cummins and customer expectations; designs for requirements of all lifecycle stages by considering the customer requirements in different operating environments to ensure a robust system.
• Mechanical Design Modelling and Analysis - Creates Computer Aided Design models in accordance with Cummins` standards to represent architectural or product level system design concepts, and to enable completion of various system-level computer analyses such as Dimensional Variation Analysis and Finite Element Analysis.
• Product Problem Solving - Solves product problems using a process that protects the customer; determines the assignable cause; implements robust, data-based solutions; and identifies the systemic root causes and recommended actions to prevent problem reoccurrence.
• System Requirements Engineering - Uses appropriate methods and tools to translate stakeholder needs into verifiable requirements to which designs are developed; establishes acceptance criteria for the system of interest through analysis, allocation and negotiation; tracks the status of requirements throughout the system lifecycle; assesses the impact of changes to system requirements on project scope, schedule, and resources; creates and maintains information linkages to related artifacts.
• Decision quality - Making good and timely decisions that keep the organization moving forward. Drives results - Consistently achieving results, even under tough circumstances.
• Communicates effectively - Developing and delivering multi-mode communications that convey a clear understanding of the unique needs of different audiences.
• Manages complexity - Making sense of complex, high quantity, and sometimes contradictory information to effectively solve problems.

Education, Licenses, Certifications:

College, university, or equivalent Bachelor`s degree in Engineering or other relevant technical disciplines is required.

Experience:

Prior Senior or Lead Engineer equivalent work experience (2-5 years) in a relevant discipline area is required with a demonstrated track record of technical problem solving and quality decision making.
Knowledge of MS Office and CREO tools is preferred.

Applications:

Applications are welcomed from Candidates who possess the relevant skills and experience as detailed in the job description.

Recent Graduates who do not have the required level of skills and experience need not apply.

Candidates must be eligible to work in the UK before making an application and it is the responsibility of the applicant to provide evidence of such eligibility.
