If you're a talented mechanical design engineer, looking for your next career move, we'd love to hear from you. Our engineering department here at Unusual is a busy one. You'll need to be proficient in AutoCAD and Inventor in order to deliver workable designs to a wide variety of challenging briefs.

The successful candidate will work closely with our clients and our in house team. You'll analyse the client brief, liaise and co-ordinate with clients, suppliers, fabrication and installation teams. You will also produce general arrangement and detailed design drawings, relevant calculations and site surveys.
