CAD Designer/Project Manager
Location: Market Harborough
Salary: £35,000 - £40,000
Job posted: 11/02/2020
Type: Full time
How often do you get to see a project through from start to finish?
More often than not, you’ll get a brief and off you go. You create the CAD and pass it over when you’re finished.
Here you’ll be designing and managing all the way through to the onsite fitting, where you’ll see your design put in place and check all the finishing touches. From liaising with the departments, clients, and suppliers to creating the technical drawings on AutoCAD (ideally you’ll have Solidworks experience, too). You’re going to be making sure everything is fit for purpose and as expected.
With the project management falling on your lap, too, you’re going to be knowledgeable in more than just your CAD design. You’ll need extensive knowledge (and interest in) of manufacturing techniques, basic measuring equipment for site surveys, knowledge of common materials and processing requirements. You get to be as hands-on as possible and see your idea come to life.
Since you’ll be client facing, meeting onsite and overseeing any client presentations, your people skills and communication need to be top level. Being able to translate technical jargon to something a little easier to digest is important.
Focusing mainly on Beauty Retail – a booming industry at the moment – you’ll be benchmarked for creativity and have your voice heard.
Working with only blue-chip clients sets you up with excellent scope for growth as the company continues to go one step further.
Salary will be £35,000 – £40,000 depending on your experience.
