Junior CAD Draughtsperson vacancy with specialist manufacturing engineering company offering great prospects for long term career stability and growth.
Are you a recent graduate from a Mechanical Engineering discipline or equivalent?

Are progression and personal development important to you?
Yes?... then please do keep reading! This might be just the opportunity for you…
Our award winning manufacturing engineering business on the outskirts of Yate, Bristol, is growing. Following investment in design, and through building very strong partnerships with our customers, we’re continuing to move into new and exciting markets, right at the forefront of new technologies.

We’re considered an outstanding employer for developing new talent in the engineering field and we pride ourselves in nurturing and developing early careers in an industry we’re passionate about.

We're a small to medium sized engineering company on a journey of achieving great things, and we're excited to be looking to hire a new Junior CAD Draughtsperson on a permanent basis to join our team.
Could you be our newest employee?
You won’t necessarily have heard of us because jobs don't come up here very often. This only happens if one of our team retires or when we're growing, and this time one of our highly respected team has decided to log out of SolidWorks for the last time to enjoy a well-deserved retirement. You will have heard of some of our customers, but not all, because we make some specialist equipment for industries which often operate behind the scenes, whilst still making a big difference to people all over the world.
We\'re a friendly team. We work hard and we're proud of the work we do. With good investment in software, machinery and our people, and with clean, and well organised premises plus good managerial support and all the tools and software we need, we get the job done to a high standard.
We’re now in a great position to take on a new Junior CAD Draughtsperson to join our growing team to support all CAD drawing matters for the design of mechanical equipment to be made on our premises.
By joining us, you'll enjoy:
+ Using SolidWorks to design new products and components, plus any related jigs, fixtures and supporting material
+ Working in smart, clean, well organised and well-equipped premises
+ Easy access to all the software and equipment you need to do your best work
+ Encouraging technical assistance always available
+ Long term job security working for a truly market leading company
+ Creating drawings of our own original mechanical equipment for a range of specialist applications
+ Joining a growing, forward-looking company where regular and continuous investment in the future is an important part of what we do
What experience will you need as our new Junior CAD Draughtsperson?
We're open to considering your application if you’ve just completed your studies at college or university and you’ve gained some good CAD Draughting skills or you might be one or two years into your career and you’re looking to make your next move. Perhaps you're more experienced and you're interested applying your skills in a forward thinking small to medium sized company with a family feel.
Either way, you’ll be comfortable with using SolidWorks to create CAD drawings. You’ll be happy in maintaining historic drawings too, and in carefully recording any changes.
Wherever you are in your career, if you’re looking for a CAD position which offers long term job security and professional development, you’re looking in the right place.
