Occasional travel to site for survey purposes will be required therefore a driving licence is required for this role.

A good knowledge of materials and manufacturing processes is required as part of this role. You will need previous working experience in an industrial setting using Inventor for 3D design and AutoCAD for the 2D design side of things. You will ideally have a degree in product design or have relatable experience in such a field.
