Job Description

We are now recruiting for 2017 graduates that have the talent and ambition to become skilled Technical Consultants. The one year long graduate programme on offer, starts with two weeks of intensive training on a combination of Autodesk’s computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing software to give you an initial insight into manufacturing that you can build upon over the course of your career.  

Following the training courses, you will begin a series of ten-week rotations around the different departments at our Birmingham site including; Professional Services Consultancy, International Engineering Support, Metrology, Artistic Solutions and Project Engineering. As well as a variety of rotations within the UK, you will have the opportunity to undertake a secondment to one of our overseas offices in North America. You will be given every opportunity to use your knowledge and enthusiasm on projects supporting organisations around the world involved in the design, manufacture and quality control of products in a huge range of sectors including aerospace, automotive, media & entertainment, and consumer goods. 

As your knowledge and expertise grow by working alongside experienced Autodesk engineers, you will be expected to demonstrate to our customers and prospects on how they can reduce design & manufacturing cycle times whilst improving product quality and reducing costs. This will be done by showcasing new and existing functionality through technical presentations. You will collaborate with the development teams to ensure the continued development of innovative functionality according to customer and in-house strategic specifications. You will participate in a range of turn-key or bespoke projects. 

Person Description

To continue our rapid growth, we need new graduates with first or upper second class degrees in Mechanical Engineering or related disciplines. 

The ideal candidate will have: a real enthusiasm for explaining, demonstrating and communicating cutting-edge applications and show confidence in front of prospects and customers; understand engineering principles and possess manufacturing knowledge to understand the use for CADCAM products; and the ability to manage themselves and to work in either a team or individual environment. 

The nature of this role requires a willingness and desire to travel either nationally or internationally on a regular basis, dependent on the department, and hence all applicants should be able to travel to Europe and North America at short notice.
