This is an outstanding opportunity for the very best engineers to become part of an incredibly exciting international engineering business. MetLase is a joint-venture between Rolls-Royce and Unipart which provides creative engineering solutions to complex problems where precision and speed of deployment are critical. MetLase technologies enable the production of custom fixtures & tooling using a novel design approach, patented mechanical joining techniques and a laser-based manufacturing process.

You’ll be involved in solution-driven design and development work. You will need to be an extremely capable professional able to facilitate and assist in the development of existing and new products. You will solve complex problems for customers and prepare designs and calculations to support the development of a wide range of leading-edge fixtures and products for national and overseas markets across a range of industries which include aerospace, automotive and motorsport. Your responsibilities are likely to include:

  • Development of new products working with customers and their engineering departments, ensuring they meet specification, functional, design and business performance requirements.
  • Involvement in the design and development of innovative products from concept to operation including system specification, definition, prototyping, manufacture, testing, installation and commissioning.
