Would you like to work on novel healthcare solutions, smart city technology, advanced robotic systems or sensors for autonomous drones? What about mobile ad-hoc radio networks or airfield radar? How do you fancy underwater or aircraft-based sensor and communications systems? These are all current projects at Plextek and we need the brightest minds joining our diverse team to deliver them.
Our work is largely driven by technical development and innovation. One of the great advantages of working here is that no two projects are the same. If you are an enthusiastic, adaptable and motivated person with a background in engineering, who thrives on variety, enjoys learning new skills and facing exciting challenges then this is the place to be.
We are looking for a manufacturing specialist responsible for delivering hardware designed by our electronic, mechanical and PCB designers. You will select suppliers, obtain quotations, place orders and resolve any issues manufacturing issues, ensuring successful project completion. You will be the focus for this activity at Plextek, particularly for PCBA and product assembly.
When appropriate you will use your knowledge of design for manufacturing supply chain principles to advise team members on a day to day basis or at formal design reviews.
A key role will be to provide estimates for the hardware and assembly required to complete client proposals, often based on novel hardware solutions. You will be expected to develop your own approach to this activity along with business leads and project managers.
The opportunity is likely to be of interest to someone in a more traditional Manufacturing Engineering role looking to widen their experience and thrive on more direct involvement with clients.
Other related knowledge areas which would be of interest include Environmental Legislation, Sustainable Design and Product Reliability.
In return, we offer a competitive package and a stimulating environment that will encourage you to be your best. We provide all the training, professional development and support that you need to complete your projects. We are a versatile business and are able to support career progression in many dimensions including technical, commercial and managerial.
