Mechanical Draftsperson (Heavy Machinery)

What Will I Be Doing And Why?
You will be doing mechanical drafting on a range of innovative heavy machinery products. These products improve customers functionality, efficiency, and safety.

So, the products you will be working on will be filling a niche market gap and making a real difference to improve customers bottom line AND the safety of people in this industry.

Strong Workflow & Stability
In addition to having established products, the industry this company work in is strong globally, so they have established market and customers for their niche products globally and across NZ.

This all results in a very stable employer and job for you.

Mature Products & R&D
This company have well selling mature products which they are refining to optimise manufacturability.

These products will keep the business rolling in and generate cashflow for R&D product development so that over time you will work on an ever-widening pool of products, keeping things interesting for you.

Robust Products & Testing
The company are well connected and partnered with the industry they sell to, which means that their products can be robustly tested by their customers.

So, you will work for a company whose products deliver in the real world.

You Can Grow Here
This is a pretty dynamic company, who are only continuing to improve and grow. Because of this there is room for you to grow too and move into other roles over time too.

This could be the sort of role that you start doing drafting and move more in a designer direction long term or stay in the drafting space if that is where you are happy.

Alternatively, if you already have more design experience then the drafting work could be spread around so some more design work is available for you.

This is a salaried role, and the company have been good about annual salary reviews and raises so you won’t stay static on the salary front.

The Role & Team
Reporting to a down to earth and friendly Design Manager, you will join a Mechanical & Electrical Design team involved in engineering design of new heavy mechanical products and making upgrades to existing products.

Initially you will mainly be focused on maintenance and updates of current products as well as drafting under the guidance of the mechanical engineers.

So, for example, doing mark-ups, drawings, and models, checking and uploading BOMs, and making parts manuals too.
