* Apply industry standards and best practices in day to day mechanical engineering activities.

* Plan, schedule and coordinate mechanical engineering work, monitoring work in progress to ensure compliance to industry legislative and regulatory requirements and company standards.

* Assist with the preparation of technical and non-technical reports.

* Liaise with internal and external stakeholders at an appropriate level to ensure the mechanical engineering solutions are communicated effectively.

* Undertaking outline and detail design, both individually (under supervision) and as part of a wider team, providing outline and detailed engineering from inception to completion of schemes, utilising individual knowledge, site installation techniques and construction personnel.

* Assist with producing site plans, general arrangements and calculations, using approved engineering techniques, procedures and criteria.

* Develop understanding of industry codes of practice.

* Work alongside design managers to ensure designs are value engineered and adhere to client specifications.

* Ensure the mechanical design takes account of buildability and health and safety requirements.

* Develop knowledge of relevant software.

* Follow the company quality management system.
