Eggs, sausages, bacon and a coffee… some of the main components of the perfect breakfast, right?
This might look like the beginning of a breakfast shopping list and you’re probably wondering what this has to do with an advert for a Component Engineer… but bear with me…

Unfortunately, these are also some of the worst foods for the environment due to the high emissions created by transportation, farming and feeding that is involved within the process. I know we can’t help with every single part of the method involved but even a little help could make big difference.

The high emissions are particularly due to the farming and transportation of these goods, even down to the average family travelling to the supermarket to do their weekly shop. This is mainly because of the petrol and diesel used within the two steps mentioned. Powertrains are one of the main components within vehicles whether it be passenger cars, commercial vehicles or the large engines within agricultural vehicles/machines and this company offering this opportunity is looking to develop a greener and safer way for these vehicles to operate through development, simulation and testing of powertrain systems.

You have the opportunity to be part of a company who currently have around 11,500 employees (plus 70 years of experience) and are still growing. This is because not only do they want to make the world more sustainable but they also value their employees and believe into turning visions of the future into reality.

We are looking for passionate and enthusiastic graduates and Component Engineers to join their thriving Design Department in Basildon or Coventry. This is an opportunity to play a crucial part in the development of modern passenger car powertrain systems. The Component Engineer will be responsible for the design, development, sign-off and release of powertrain components.

Your Responsibilities:

  • Knowledge of design for manufacture (manufacturing processes selection, material selection and process control technologies), machining techniques and technologies and tolerance design. 
  • Ability to interpret CAE and CFD analysis data to determine impact on the component design.
  • Development of FMEA and design verification test plans.
  • Ability to analyse test data results and impact on design.
  • Support component specifications for sign-off.
  • Preparation of reports (verbal & written), providing robust recommendations and proposals

Essential Skills:

  • Degree in Electrical, Mechanical, Automotive, Mechatronics Engineering or similar (min 2:1)
  • Good understanding of vehicle/powertrain system and component requirements (ICE, e-machines, hybrid systems, battery systems, etc)
  • Knowledge of GD&T, FMEA, DVP&R, 8D Techniques.
