Manufacturing Project Engineer - Battery Modules
A leading UK Lithium-Ion Battery Manufacturing Technical Centre are seeking a number of experienced Manufacturing Project Engineers (Battery Modules) to support their industrial R&D and scale up processes. It is quite possible that these skills don`t yet exist within the immature UK Lithium-ion Battery industry, so we are looking for "near neighbour" technologies. So if you have direct or similar experience of production of battery modules, particularly cell insertion, welding, cooling and joining, and you want to get into one of the fastest growing and best invested sectors in UK Manufacturing, then please apply.
Commutable from: Coventry, Warwick, Leamington Spa, Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford, Leicester, Birmingham
Salary: £ 30,000 - £ 45,000 p.a.
Suitable for: Project Engineer, Process Engineer, Lead Project Engineer, Lead Process Engineer, Manufacturing Engineer
The Manufacturing Project Engineers (Battery Modules) will carry out research and production of Battery Modules to support the ramp up into series productions and the associated activities, with reference to: Process Equipment Commissioning; Quality Management; Recruitment; and Team Development
To provide specialist technical recommendations, practical tools and design resolution advice for manufacturing and performance within the project, particularly on Cell Insertion, Welding, Cooling, Joining, etc.
To share information with colleagues and customers, and provide recommendations.
To manage research aspects of the project including contributing to academic publications, technical reports and other presentations and dissemination methods
To assist with the development and delivery of teaching and training materials to disseminate the research findings in a format that will encourage successful implementation.
To identify, operate and install suitable equipment to support the project objectives. Carrying out suitable tests to evaluate the equipment performance effect on product to push forward the boundaries of current knowledge in each topic area. Running on a campaign strategy.
To record and track the delivery of deliverables during research and production & identify routes for achievement of targets.
The Manufacturing Project Engineers (Battery Modules) will have an honours degree in a relevant engineering discipline.
As Manufacturing Project Engineers (Battery Modules), you will have a good understanding of manufacturing engineering and industrial automation (preferably Battery Module Assembly) within high value industries.
The Manufacturing Project Engineers (Battery Modules) will have experience in experimental design, data analysis and interpretation specific to Battery Module assembly or comparable processes. E.g. Automotive, Aeronautical, Food etc.
Experience of manufacturing process engineering within automotive battery module assembly, or relevant industrial sector. (e.g. High speed manufacturing)
Taking R&D principals and moving to first implementation within a "real world" environments.
Ideally will have worked with automotive battery module and pack assembly, or similar aligned industry experience.
Skilled at project planning and reporting.
Able to effectively make process improvements and recommendations
