Due to a drive for greater success, this advanced manufacturing business is currently searching for a Design Engineer to add to their talented, hardworking team on an initial 12 month contract. Striving for innovation and creativity you can ensure no two days will be the same. This role is 100% remote working and is outside IR35. Hourly rate for this role is negotiable.

In addition, you'll also be consulting with engineers of other disciplines, for example Manufacturing Engineers regarding manufacturability of your design and have opportunity to constantly learn new things and share them with your team members.

In addition, an University degree in Mechanical or Aerospace Engineering and experience in aerospace certification procedures will be helpful.


This is an exciting opportunity to work for a global business that has developed a strategy of working closely with its contingent workforce. Within the role, you can expect to:
