First People Solutions are currently looking for a Draughtsman to work with a niche manufacturing company based in Aberdeen. This will be a permanent role.

Why has this role come about?

The company have recently won several contracts and are needing an extra draughtsman to assist with the design work on these projects. The work is long term, therefore they are wanting someone on a permanent basis.

What is involved?

  • You will be involved in general drawing office activities, much of which will be CAD or 3D drawing, as required for the manufacture of the company’s products. This will also include aspects such as selection of materials and compilation of parts lists. An element of the work will include discussing and planning these activities.
  • You will be required to ensure adequate records are maintained and drawings are completed on time and in compliance with the company’s ISO9001 quality system. Much of our work falls under EEC Directives and the 2 main ones we work to, are the Machinery Directive and the Pressure Equipment directive. It is important that you have a good understanding of these directives, and that adequate “Technical Files” are maintained for these products.
  • Various calculations are carried out on all our products to determine that designs are fit for purpose. You should be familiar with simple engineering calculations to determine mechanical strengths, using yield, tensile, shear, bending, crippling, burst and collapse. You should also have an understanding of calculations for power, flow, pressure, and force.
  • The company is required to produce technical documentation or manuals for most of the equipment we produce, and you may be required to produce or work on these documents, which would include such activities as checking and preparation of as built drawings, or writing up operating and maintenance instructions.
  • It is important that the company maintains (and improves) the quality and control of its drawings, and a responsible attitude is required to ensure that all Drawing Office procedures are closely followed.

Why should you apply?

You’ll be working with a small, tight-knit team who are eager to work to the best of their ability. You’ll be working with a growing company and can see yourself in a more senior role quite quickly.

For more information, please apply for this advertisement and we will be in touch with the next steps.
