Senior R&D Product Development Engineer – Composites

£45-55k + Bonus + Excellent Benefits

This is a really nice opportunity for a Mechanical or Materials Engineer who has an interest in composites to join a growing design and manufacturing company in the southern Hampshire area.  This company recently received major investment and have secured one of their biggest projects to date.

In this role you’ll be responsible for performing analysis of composite products and components, participating in the development of numerical or analytical models to predict structural performance. In addition to this you specify small-scale (coupon) tests to characterise the composite material level performance and analyse the resulting test data for use as input to full-scale structural models. This will also include report writing, so a good level of English is required.

You’ll be working with a variety of engineering managers, project managers, business development managers and test engineers so you should have a collaborative approach to work and be happy to work onsite for the majority of the time.
