Graduate Design Engineer

Full time Design Engineer positions located at our Chester office for graduates with a Mechanical or Aerospace degree.

On-going recruitment, we are looking for suitable candidates right now.

Electroimpact UK Ltd. is looking to expand and has many full time salaried positions for entry level mechanical and aerospace engineers.

Candidates will have a BEng or MEng degree and we will give an engineering test during later rounds of selection.

We are currently building machines that drill and fasten A350 wings in the UK.  Machines that wind graphite fibre onto the 787.  Machines that install rivets and bolts into the A380 wings.  Many other exotic machines as well.  We have aircraft assembly machines going to Japan, China, Brazil, Canada and locations in Europe and the USA. Entry level engineers initially assemble equipment and then move onto the design of their own. 

The company was founded in 1986 by Dr. Peter Zieve as a haven for engineers.  If you enjoy using hand tools, working on cars or operating machine tools you will be able to use these skills.  If you prefer CAD design and structural analysis you can use those skills as well.  Electroimpact provides factory automation solutions for aerospace including machine tools and fixtures.  Electroimpact has grown to be one of the larger system integrators of aircraft assembly lines.  A significant customer base provides Electroimpact with projects throughout the world.  Electroimpact is an engineer driven organisation that seeks individuals with strong communication skills coupled with a solid engineering background.  We look for individuals who prefer to be involved in the product lifecycle from system conceptualisation to in-service application.  With a strong history of engineers that build what they create; we look for people with the aptitude to design on the screen and apply in the field.  Basic CAD skills are required, but training will be provided on the latest solid modelling platforms. Applicants must be open to international travel, typically trips to go install equipment for up to a couple of months.

Electroimpact is 100% owned by engineers that work in the business.  This creates an environment in which good engineering is more important than good profit. At Electroimpact the engineer is involved in every aspect of a project including concept, selling, business, designing, manufacturing, integration, shipping, installing and factory support.  The engineer is in communication with and is directly responsible to the customer/user.  For the avoidance of doubt we employ 300 engineers, zero salesmen and zero businessmen.

We have jobs that need engineers to join on immediately.  If your resume is selected and you score well on the test you will be called for a telephone interview by Dr. Peter Zieve the company founder and CEO.  We guarantee an Electroimpact engineer will review your application – we do not employ HR personnel to handle recruitment.
