The successful candidate will ideally have a proven experience in interior moulding polymer design and selection.

    You will be part of a team delivering varied work programmes from concept to delivery – from specification, through analysis, concept design, testing, and development, to engineering sign-off.

    About you:

    Your passion for engineering, open minded approach and flexibility are all essential attributes. You will show a creative approach to problem solving and possess the determination to see challenges through to a validated solution. Pressure, tight deadlines, and exacting standards are all a part of the job, so you’re going to need to be the kind of person who relishes them.

    The ideal candidate should be a team player with a “hands on” approach to problem solving. You will operate and manage within a team and under your own initiative, interpreting specifications and contributing to technical discussions. The flexibility to travel to other JCB sites when necessary.
