Your role will focus on the manufacture of 7-22’s ecological pre-fabricated building system, as a key figure working with both the architectural and construction team.

We are seeking a Product Design Engineer as part of the team to help us develop our innovative, ecologically focused construction business. 7-22 Systems produces an architect-designed building system, suited to small to medium sized construction projects, and provides a turn-key Design and Build construction service.

During the construction phase of projects you will also assist colleagues on site in line with your experience.

You will assist the Directors and production team in the process of continuous improvement. This will include researching and procuring materials or equipment, helping to develop production methods and procedures to improve quality and productivity, prototyping new components and liaising with consultant partners (eg engineers). 

Gross Salary £31,000 - £35,000 per annum dependent on experience.
