Structural Analysis Engineer


Mechanical Engineering, Research Engineering, Science
Malmesbury - United Kingdom


Working within a small team of engineers within the Global Technology Development Organization, the successful candidate will support our upstream and downstream product teams during innovation and development phases of class leading products, ensuring they meet our high integrity and reliability standards.  This will involve the use of FEA tools, hand calculations, materials testing and experimentation, to turn our next generation ideas into working products.


  • Supporting new product development by identifying and resolving structural issues

  • Use of FEA software (such as ANSYS and Moldflow) to explore and implement design improvements

  • Use of ad-hoc hand calculations and experiments to validate results and substantiate engineering decisions

  • Delivery of internal ANSYS training and mentoring use of the software within our design teams

  • Pro-actively resolving critical reliability, manufacturing and product safety issues

  • Investigating new analysis and experimentation techniques, improving model validation and accuracy


  • A degree in mechanical engineering, Physics or Mathematics  

  • Competence in the use and application of CAE tools to assist design development (ideally ANSYS, Moldflow and ideally LightTools)

  • Experience in a range of specialist analysis techniques, such as static, vibration, explicit dynamic, thermal and injection moulding simulation

  • Sound knowledge of mechanical properties, failure mechanisms and processing of common engineering materials

  • Ability to communicate analytical results to designers, senior management and engineering teams in the Far East

  • Creative and methodical problem solving skills

  • Ability to manage multiple projects and prioritise key activities according to project timescales

  • A keen sense of curiosity is essential coupled with the ability to work at the necessary intensity level to deliver results.
