Haughton Design was founded by Managing Director David Mills in 1995. Since then the team has grown to comprise of industrial designers, mechanical designers, design engineers and design detailers. This unique combination of innovative thinking and engineering heritage allows us to offer the complete design development process.
We aim to build long term relationships with our clients to provide them with innovative design and engineering solutions. By working in partnership we are able to become an extension of our client’s internal teams, from initial concept through to manufacture. We are able to manage the whole process offering honest and practical advice, throughout. With decades of experience your design will be in very safe hands!
Our approach to design means we regularly engage with manufacturers early on within the design process to ensure that all designs are fit for purpose. To validate our work we also utilise a strong network of industry experts in a range of fields such as plastics technology, medical device regulations and electronics to design for manufacture.
We are committed to delivering quality to our clients, and are ISO 9001 approved.
As leading design consultants we are a growing company so often recruit new staff. We need people who are highly motivated, work well in a team and want to be the best around. If you just want an ordinary job or don’t want to make a difference we are not the company for you!
If you are a first class product or mechanical designer with a minimum HNC and 5 years design experience we are always interested in receiving your CV for future reference.
New job –Senior Design Engineer – Stafford
Haughton Design are currently inviting contact from first class designers, looking for an interesting and challenging role within a leading Design Consultancy.
We provide design development services to a range of clients in sectors including medical and aerospace. We have defined growth plans so are looking for people who want to be part of a team and to grow too. The ideal candidate will be someone who has an ambitious, can do attitude whilst embracing the business needs of both Haughton Design and of our clients.
We have a strong, friendly and supportive team who will ensure you are up to speed quickly so are comfortable with your work. Your career will benefit from working directly with a variety of highly skilled consultants, suppliers and clients too. You will quickly receive the recognition and satisfaction of winning, designing and delivering cutting edge designs for a range of high profile clients throughout the UK.
Working within a friendly team through a formal design development process, you would be responsible for your own projects and for coordinating colleagues to ensure designs are delivered on time and to budget. Typically creating hand sketches to generate innovative ideas, you would then use SolidWorks to develop 3D concepts through detailed design engineering and into manufacturing data/drawings. We strive for efficient design to deliver successful projects so you will also make use of a wide variety of different tools including TRIZ, dFMEAs and FEA through to rough mock-ups and prototypes for physical testing.
3D design and component detailing must be first class, with fully drafted plastic parts and all moulding requirements identified. Any steel and fabricated parts must be designed considering available materials and manufacturing processes from the outset. Our client’s products are of the highest quality so our designs need to be thoroughly engineered to perform in the same manner.
There will also be an element of mentoring less experienced designers and developing specialist knowledge to serve as an expert within the team.Ultimately, you need be someone who is highly motivated, who is passionate about design, engineering and developing quality products for our clients.
Due to the nature of our work we are looking for someone with at least 7 years design experience. Knowledge and experience of the medical sector is advantageous but general mechanical design aptitude and a track record of developing successful products in a range of materials is a must.
An ability to undertake mechanical calculations and a good understanding of FEA would be an advantage but an open and creative mind, willing to learn new skills is vital. A good understanding of project management and it’s accompanying commercial implications would be helpful too. We are looking for someone fully conversant with the suite of SolidWorks software. However we do realise that the person we are looking for may not be able to cover the whole range of skills required so training will be provided to cover any shortfalls in knowledge, if required.
Qualified to minimum HNC with apprenticeship or HND/degree level, with the ability to think laterally and focus your energy on the needs of our clients.
