Mechanical Design Engineers Recruitment

We specialise in Mechanical Design Engineering roles for electronics and embedded systems businesses developing complex embedded systems that need enclosing in specialist housing to ensure compatibility for the industry sector.

Our Expertise

We have 25 years of experience in mechanical engineers recruitment, placing talented candidates in roles for electronics and embedded systems businesses.

We have recruited for a number of different roles during this time, including contract mechanical design engineer jobs, mechanical design engineers designing complex moving parts for robotic systems, upper limb prosthetics with the complexities of actuated mechanisms and plastic enclosures for handheld instrumentation.

Why we’re the
right partner

The Mechanical Engineers we recruit are typically working towards design for manufacture, and have experience with 3D CAD packages such as Solidworks, Catia and Creo as well as FMEAs, and have the relevant standards experience.

As a mechanical design engineer recruitment agency, we have experience placing mechanical design engineers throughout the Electronics and Embedded systems lifecycle. This means working with mechanical design engineers who purely specialise in new product development and work from a blank sheet of paper typically using a 3D CAD package such as Solidworks, Catia and Creo, as well as working with mechanical design engineers who specialise in improving current designs and ensuring current designs are compliant.

The typical mechanical design engineers we recruit for have both 3D and 2D CAD experience, but typically specialise in 3D CAD and have the ability to work with injection moulding (plastic and metals), compression moulding, investment casting, multi-axis machining, motor calculations and gearbox selections, full mechanical design lifecycle experience (concept to manufacturing), design for products enclosing electronics/PCBs and experience collaborating with external partners.

Aside from having relevant mechanical design experience, our candidates usually need knowledge of working with electronics and embedded system engineers. It would be unusual to find a mechanical engineer with the ability to design electronics or programme embedded software, as mechanical design engineers will typically have designed products that enclose electronics and embedded systems, and must feel comfortable working in a multi-disciplined R&D team focusing on fast-moving product development.

We work with mechanical design engineers working throughout the whole lifecycle. Whether it is mechanical design for a product at the concept stage, mechanical design for re-design of an existing product or a mechanical design engineer who specialises in standards for a specific sector to ensure compliance, we have the experience to cover any mechanical design requirement.

We have many years of experience placing mechanical design engineers on commercial, defence, medical, automotive, IoT and energy projects.
