Mechanical recruitment experts

What are the skills that matter to employers for their mechanical design engineering roles? Essential requirements typically include a minimum of an HND qualification in an engineering discipline. On top of this you need to be 3D CAD software literate – the most sought after programme is SOLIDWORKS, the most powerful manufacturing design solution and typically a pre-requisite for mechanical jobs in the UK.

As well as the foundational skills to succeed in mechanical jobs such as computer design, testing and simulation, you also need to demonstrate a high degree of aptitude in soft skills. These include problem solving, collaboration and creativity to come up with innovative solutions. Communication is also key for all mechanical engineering roles, as you may find yourself explaining processes to non-engineers.  

Whether you’re searching for a mechanical design engineering job in Somerset or Staffordshire, Worcestershire or Oxfordshire, we cover the whole of the UK, partnering with established and new organisations across different sectors with one thing in common: finding talented engineers for their mechanical jobs.
