We are currently looking to recruit into the following positions based at Far Composites:
FEA Programme Manager - The new team member will provide technical leadership on a number of research programmes aimed at developing the next generation of automotive body structures. Experience in Finite Element Analysis, especially in the composites industry, is considered essential. Experience of programming in C#, C++ or Python would be an advantage.
Graduate Engineer - The purpose of the role is to take component concepts or process ideas, and to work as part of a team to bring them into reality. Products are predominantly in carbon fibre but may also include other advanced composites. With a number of different projects accessible, the opportunity to experience a range of technologies exists. These will include working with CAD design, FEA analysis, material classification, tool making and various production techniques. An experienced member of the company will be available as support where necessary, but you will be expected to be actively seeking to develop your skill set and associated learning at all times. New challenges will be a prominent part of the Graduate Engineer role and a willingness to engage with enthusiasm is essential.
Composites Lab Technician – This is a diverse role requiring a hands-on approach as well as an ability to follow an agreed plan methodically, assisting all the live projects in the workshop and bringing Far’s new technologies into reality. Experience in the composites industry is favourable, although related skill sets such as chemistry or fabrics would be considered useful. Extra training will be given where needed. Key to the role is a willingness to learn and to try new things. Technicians will be expected to work with other members of the engineering team to agree testing plans and then deliver these in a timely manner.
Year in Industry Student - This one-year industry placement for an undergraduate student is a fantastic opportunity at Far Composites. With copious amounts of live projects your role will include helping other members of the engineering team to bring new technologies into reality. Placement students typically get involved in a range of activities such as customer meetings, trade exhibitions, testing and analysis, CAD development and their own side project to develop their portfolio. Far Composites has a strong emphasis on personal development and a candidate who is willing to learn and adapt will get the most out of this role. In previous years students have returned to university with a much deeper understanding of what they are capable of as an engineer, especially in terms of composites technologies.
We are a small company that values flexibility and a willingness to learn in our team members. In exchange, we offer an exciting challenge as part of a team delivering advanced weight saving technology to the mass market automotive industry.
