  • You should have worked in a product design or development environment, applying Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) tools and computational techniques to develop product solutions, ideally utilising a wide range of manufacturing process and materials, including plastic injection moulding.
  • You must be a creative problem-solver, able to generate innovative solutions to engineering problems.
  • You will need to assimilate new information and learn new skills very quickly in a dynamic consultancy environment.
  • You will be expected to take responsibility for your technical work, although senior engineers will be available to advise you and undertake formal checking.
  • You may be called upon to lead specific work packages and advise and support the work of more junior engineers.
  • You must be a good verbal and written communicator. 
  • You will need to be enthusiastic, hardworking and proud of your work.  People at DCA are passionate about the creation and delivery of new products.
