Working for one of the UKs most recognised brands who continue to expand and develop globally, this is an excellent opportunity to work within one of their modern and busy divisions.

This role is focused specifically on the design of hydraulic systems for telescopic handlers and requires candidates with hydraulic systems design experience.

Reporting to the Engineering Manager or Principal Engineer, the role will involve engineering design and draughting, CAD modelling of components and their mechanical installation on a machine and preparing drawing and engineering data for release.

In addition, you will be responsible for engineering documentation as well as investigation and problem solving. The post holder will co-ordinate with other functional areas such as Assembly, Manufacturing, Purchasing and Materials.

In addition to design duties, the role will require significant involvement in the testing, development and validation of the machine hydraulic system and components.

There will also be significant engagement with component suppliers and the negotiation of specification and cost to meet technical and commercial targets.


Applicants are expected to have some level of recognised technical qualification relevant to the role. A degree in a relevant discipline would be preferred but other qualifications would be considered with appropriate experience. The candidate will have broad experience of mechanical design on this scale, ideally with other plant/agricultural equipment or otherwise automotive, rail, commercial or military vehicles or similar heavy equipment.

You will be literate, numerate and articulate, able to take direction and work as part of a small team.

It is important that candidates have interpersonal skills sufficient to communicate and work with people outside the engineering functional area and with external suppliers.

Additionally, a strong sense of urgency is necessary, with the ability to take ownership of issues and a good work ethic
