Job description

CADagency is delighted to be working with a specialist design and manufacturing company based in Lincoln. Our client creates one-off doorsets in steel and glass. Due to on-going high demand, we are helping them to recruit an additional CAD Designer to join their small design team.

You will be working with the Design Manager to create technical drawings from scratch. These drawings will then be sent down to the manufacturing shopfloor for fabrication.

Some doorsets can be simple, just requiring modification of an existing design, whilst others need a lot of intensive design work.

On a daily basis, the role will see you working closely with the sales teams to understand the specifics of each clients requirements. You will then mainly use AutoCAD and some SolidWorks to create technical drawings. You will work closely with the fabricators to investigate any problems that arise on the shop floor, finding solutions, or revising parts quickly.

Once the product is manufactured, you will liaise with the installation team to provide advice whilst fitting. This will also involve creating installation and manufacturing instructions.

Finally, you will be involved in the research and development of new products to add to our clients ranges.

You will ideally have progressed through shop floor roles in manufacturing and worked with CNC machines, before moving on to industrial design.

If you have prior experience of sheet metal this is an advantage, but training will be given. If you have experience in programming, electrical control or electronics, that is also an advantage. You will be trained in the use of Jetcam, Cam Plus, and our clients bespoke programs.
