Based in Bugbrooke, Northampton, Unusual Rigging Limited is a supplier of rigging and technical solutions to the entertainment, exhibition, architectural and event industries, we offer a full range of services, including design, build and engineering.

We are currently looking for a mechanical / design engineer to become an integral part of our busy and expanding design engineering department.  The department is responsible for working with our clients and in house project managers to design and deliver practical engineering solutions to a variety of challenging briefs, ranging from simple truss arrangements in 2D to complete stage engineering designs in 3D.

You will be working from the office (with occasional visits to client sites across the UK and beyond), utilising AutoCAD to design and dimension fabrication drawing on projects based on a client's specifications. Working with the client throughout the life-cycle of the project, from initial enquiry through to completion, you will work closely with the Lead Design Engineer to develop your skills and take on responsibilities from them as the role evolves.

The successful candidate will:

  • have some exposure (whether through education or work experience) and an appreciation of some aspects of structural engineering.
This role will develop to suit the skills of the individual. We are a growing company with a track record of promoting talent internally.
