The Job


As a result of growing demands for our clients award winning range of diesel, electric vehicles and the new exciting Hydrogen engine development programmes, we are seeking Design / System Engineers. The post will suit an individual looking for an opportunity to develop their career within a fast paced organisation at the cutting edge of off highway vehicle design and development.


The Applications & Integration team are responsible for;

  • Selecting suitablepowertrain components to develop a propulsion system to meet the machine & territory requirements using
    • Diesel, Electric, Hydrogen or Hybrid Systems
    • CVT, Hydrostatic, Electric or Powershift Transmissions & Axles

  • The design, specification, validation & delivery of the following systems & sub components;
    • Under bonnet thermal management systems (Cooling pack including fan drive system)
    • Induction / filtration systems
    • Fuel System
    • Exhaust / Aftertreatment System
    • Associated Mounting / interfacing systems
    • Braking Systems


You will be responsible for all stages of development from concept to flawless launch, meeting all regulatory, quality, cost and timing requirements. You'll lead a team of engineers, ensuring they deliver the work programme from specification through analysis, testing and development, to your final sign-off, as well as supporting in-house quality and manufacturing service teams to resolve complex technical issues.


The applicant should ideally have an extensive working knowledge of powertrain systems in either on or off highway vehicles / machinery as well as a good base engineering experience in fabrications, mouldings etc.
