Product Development Engineer - KTP Associate

Job description

This position with a pioneering company and a leading university department is an opportunity for you to make your mark.

The company has identified a need to investigate, research and develop this concept to pre-production level. You will be working at the junctions of materials technology and mechanical engineering.

You will be based at the company site in Hull working directly with senior company staff, as well as receiving additional mentoring support from expert university staff. The role requires a commitment to travel in pursuance of the programme objectives (predominantly between the company and the University).

The appointment carries a range of benefits including:

  • Excellent opportunity to "fast track” your career by leading a high profile and strategically important project to a successful conclusion
  • A generous personal development budget in addition to formal KTP management training
  • Automatic inclusion in our defined benefit pension scheme
  • The opportunity to register for a higher degree (MPhil/PhD) for which tuition fees will be waived

Although the appointment is initially for 36 months it is likely that a permanent position will be available within the company on successful completion of the project.

What we are looking for

Relevant industrial experience is highly desirable, and you must be pro-active, have excellent communication, report writing and presentation skills, and be able to work effectively as part of a team.


Ideally, you will have a master's degree in materials/civil/mechanical engineering with knowledge and experience of material testing techniques relevant to the project.

Accepted degree subjects
