Application deadline: 

This business is part of a global group, which specialises in making accessible daily living products for the elderly, and people with a disability or reduced mobility. As part of their succession management programme, they are looking for a Mandarin speaking Engineering graduate to join the team.

Your degree should be in Mechanical Engineering, Design Engineering or a related discipline, and as there will be daily contact with China, and some occasional travel there, written and spoken fluency in Mandarin and English is essential.

It’s a varied role, and you will be:

  • Designing new products including preparing drawings, bill of materials and specifications plus testing prototypes and initial off tool samples.
  • Supporting existing products with updates to improve performance and quality, and reduce costs.  This will also include BOM, specification and drawing updates.
  • Responding to and resolving Engineering help desk issues.

You should have decent knowledge of a recognised 3D CAD package, ideally SolidWorks but training to convert from an alternative package would be available.

This is a key pivot position within the business: you will be liaising with Chinese suppliers on new product development; expediting tooling; improving existing products and addressing potential quality issues. This aspect of the role is likely to involve 2-4 visits per year (each visit lasting approximately 2 weeks) to China with members of the Senior Leadership team.

Visa sponsorship is available for the right candidate.

Sound good? If so please apply asap-the closing dates on our advertising are for guidance only and we always encourage early applications where possible.
