Job Description:

Expereinced Tooling Engineer required for an immediate start on an on-going contract working on a OEM project in the UK.

We are supporting a leading automotive client in their supply of design and manufacturing to a leading OEM in the UK in their requirement for an on-going project.

They are looking for an experienced Tooling Engineer to work closely with the Engineering Team (together with OEM and supply base as necessary) to ensure that, from inception, emerging component concepts and designs are inherently tooling / equipment / process feasible and robust, fully accommodating the principle of Design for Manufacture, both in terms of function and life cycle.

As a Tooling Engineer, you will be expected to provide technical support for all aspects of creating and maintaining a preferred supplier listing, based upon a 'framework agreement' communicating effectively with purchasing personnel. This to accommodate ongoing risk (and total cost of ownership) analysis.

The successful candidate will need at least 10 years' experience in a toolmaking / processing environment, covering manufacturing processes routinely utilised in programs, primarily conventional injection moulding, and complementary processes and will be expected to have at least 5 years' exposure to Automotive Industry methods and approaches.

If you are looking for a new role and wanting to be a part of a hard working team within a credible, established organisation then please send your cv to or call on 01908 224028.

Alternatively, if this role is not for you, but you know of anyone who may be of interest, please send this email on. If you can recommend anyone and we place them, we can send you vouchers based on our referral reward scheme.

TXM Recruit is an equal opportunities employer. If you have any specific requirements or require assistance or reasonable adjustments to be made for you during the selection process due to disability or long-term health condition, we will do our best to assist you.
