Job Description
Our client has won a project to deliver the design and testing phase of a new fuel saving technology. 
 
We need two people for a 6-9 month contract, starting at the end of January. One to lead the design and the other to contribute to the design. 
 
It is expected that the Lead Engineer will fall outside outside of IR35, but the other will be within IR35. 

The project is to develop the designs for the first prototype unit from concept models and drawings, then follow through to the site/construction phase.

There are some rotating mechanical aspects so we are looking for people who have contributed to multi-disciplinary projects, but this is predominantly ships structures and large deck equipment. 
 
You will need to be self-sufficient with CAD and FEA, however detail drawings will be done by the fabricator.  

Ideally, candidates will be located on the South Coast of the UK, but some home working and weekly commute is also possible. 
 
Applicants must have the existing right to live and work in the UK and have (or have researched) knowledge of the required arrangements for working as a consultant/contractor.
