We are looking for a Hydraulics System Designer to join this very busy team with prospects of broadening their skills base and experience.

Primarily designing and developing hydraulic systems for custom built yachts, you will take projects from initial design specifications, having responsibility for new circuit design of custom hydraulic circuits and ensuring that they are perfectly matched to applications on the yacht.

The designs will involve the selection of both fixed and variable displacement pumps, and specification of motors and valves to suit each application. You will be familiar with hydraulic reservoir design, using both AC and DC mounted pump motors. You will be able to calculate circuit performance and create a cost effective solution.

We would like you to be educated to Degree / HNC level in mechanical engineering with further training and qualifications in hydraulics. You are likely to have a background in mobile and/or industrial hydraulics, modular industrial valves, proportional load sense valves and pumps mounted to engine power take off.

You must be used to working to tight deadlines, and have the flexibility to manage several projects at one time.

The design process will be CAD based, so you should have an excellent understanding of AutoCAD and some exposure to 3D CAD would be preferential. You will also be involved with keeping modification control and utilising modern design office practices.

Alongside trouble-shooting of existing systems, you will be expected to carry out testing of newly designed systems within our in-house test facility and, at times, short periods of overseas travel may be required.

Your starting salary will be commensurate to your skill level and will be competitive. Benefits will include 25-days annual holiday and a company pension scheme will be offered after a probationary period.
