Medical Devices - Senior Mechanical Design Engineer - Cambridge

Due to successful growth plans, a Medical Devices organization based in Cambridge is currently seeking a Senior Mechanical Design Engineer to contribute to the development and improvement of life-saving Medical Devices.

Collaborating closely with other industry experts, such as electronics design engineers, software engineers, physicists, and other Medical Devices specialists, you will tackle some of the most complex challenges in the development of new Medical Technologies.

Ideally, you will have a background in developing new Medical Devices throughout the entire design life cycle, adhering to ISO 13485 standards. If you have not worked on Medical Devices, we will consider candidates from other highly regulated industries such as life sciences, robotics, product development, etc.

For the 3D CAD elements of your role, you will primarily use SolidWorks. Familiarity with this tool would be advantageous, but we are open to considering other 3D CAD tools if you have a proven track record of quickly acquiring new skills.

When discussing complex problems, it would be beneficial if the Medical Devices you have worked on have involved fluidics, mechanism design, thermal issues, FEA, or other intricate applications. We do not expect you to have experience in all of these areas; they are just a few examples of the challenges you may encounter.

This company is experiencing growth but remains at a size where your work will significantly impact the company's success and projects. Therefore, we are seeking a team player accustomed to collaborating with diverse individuals both within and outside of the organization.

While continually facing challenges, you will advance your skills at the forefront of the sector. In addition to this, you will receive an excellent starting salary, a bonus (typically around 20%, recently even higher), BUPA healthcare, a pension plan, a generous holiday allowance, and other outstanding benefits.

Salary will be commensurate with experience, and we welcome applications from candidates with a few years of industry experience to those with over twenty years of experience. Finding the right fit is more important to us than a specific number of years of experience.

It is expected that you hold a degree in addition to any industry experience. If you also possess a PhD, it would be welcomed but is not essential.

Interviews will be conducted as soon as a suitable candidate is identified. If you are interested in exploring this role, we recommend submitting your application and CV. Please note that your CV will not be forwarded to the company until after we have discussed the role and the company in detail.

For more information, please feel free to call Andrew Welsh, Director of Medical Devices Recruitment and Scientific Recruitment Specialist at Newton Colmore, at 0121 268 2240. Alternatively, you can submit an application, and a member of our Newton Colmore team will contact you.

Newton Colmore Consulting is a specialised recruitment company operating in the Medical Devices, Scientific Engineering, Scientific Software, Robotics, Data Science, Healthcare Communications, Science, Electronics Design, New Product Design, Human Factors, Regulatory Affairs, Quality Assurance, and Field Service Engineering sectors.
