This well-established international manufacturing and contracting company has built up a great reputation within the construction and security industry, specialising in security and protection products and projects across the UK. Working with clients of all sizes, including many major contractors and end user clients, the company is currently looking to recruit a new Technical Designer on an interim basis to join their facility based in the Sheffield area.

You will be working within a small team and closely with a Senior Technical Designer to manage an expanding workload, providing designs for internal and external clients and assisting on project work.

Main responsibilities:

  • Supporting the sales team to quickly respond to customer requests for semi-standard and made to order products
  • Creating models and technical drawings of semi-standard and made to order products
  • Supporting the Senior Technical Designer to create models and drawings for special products
  • Helping with administration of design files

Skills and Experience:

You will possess a good working knowledge and competence in Solidworks 3D CAD and will also need to demonstrate a good understanding of construction methods and manufacturing processes with a sound technical knowledge and strong 2D/3D conceptual skills.

Good communication, numeracy and IT skills are all important, as is the willingness to learn and work well within a small team while also having plenty of your own initiative and the ability to liaise with all areas of the business.

Strong problem solving and a desire to come up with practical solutions will make you stand out. You will also have the ability to meet deadlines and need to have a good creative flair with strong accuracy and attention to detail.

Although we try to respond to all candidates, due to a high volume of applications this is not always possible. If you have not heard from Mentor Recruitment within 14 days, unfortunately your application has been unsuccessful.
