Castletown | permanent
Salary: £25000 to £30000 per annum
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.
You should have decent knowledge of a recognised 3D CAD package, ideally SolidWorks but training to convert from an alternative package would be available.
Your office will be on the Isle of Man, and will need to relocate if not already based there.
Opportunity for a Mandarin speaking graduate with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, Design Engineering or related. Visa sponsorship is available for the right candidate.
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.
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.
