2 x Designer/ Drafter
Initial 3 Month Contract
2 Designers/ Drafters are required to work on initial 3 month contracts based in Stafford, the successful candidates must be familiar with Creo and Windchill.
Designer/Drafter is responsible for providing mechanical or electromechanical designs for new or existing products within a business segment.
They may work independently or in conjunction with Engineers. Designers make required calculations to establish acceptable standards of performance, material/component selection, and type of construction.
Work from specifications as to product requirements.
May follow up construction and testing of prototypes, assisting with analyzing results and corrective redesign as required.
Designers are expected to provide design solutions that meet standards for reliability, performance, cost, serviceability, and program delivery targets.
Provide technical leadership, guidance, and training to other design/drafting team members. Key responsibilities/essential functions include:
Produce drawings, layouts, and/or diagrams from sketches, existing drawings, electronic images, design concepts and/or verbal instructions Work with Engineers to capture and produce a design that captures all product requirements for either new or existing products
Use computer assisted design/drafting equipment and software to develop designs Establish design standards, procedures and techniques to produce high reliability products (such as Design for Manufacturability and Design for Testability)
The Mechanical Designer will verify that all drawings convey accurate information Ensure all necessary documentation is complete such as engineering prints, bills of materials, and related product specifications to allow successful transfer to manufacturing
Perform schematic capture duties such as maintenance of parts libraries and updating schematics or drawings in an organized and timely manner
