Salary from; £Competitive + Benefits
Permanent

A growing automotive consultancy are going through a continued period of growth and as a result of this have a number of openings within their engine test and vehicle emissions departments. It's no wonder really since the term 'emissions' is used in the press on a daily basis resulting in the UK government/vehicle certification agency putting even bigger constraints on emissions testing. It's definitely an area of the industry that is growing as engineering companies strive for low carbon and greater connectivity in their vehicles.

As a vehicle emissions test engineer, you will be responsible for delivering a number of full-lifecycle vehicle emissions projects for a number of automotive customers. This will include liaising with the customer in the first instance to provide technical input in to emissions development programmes; documenting their test requirements; creating a functional test specification; translating this in to a test procedure for the technicians to then carry out; oversee the vehicle preparation and equipment installation; collate and validate the test data; draw up recommendations with professional test reports; present findings to the customer; whilst always striving to reduce waste and develop cost reduction initiatives.

Ideally, you will currently be working as a vehicle test engineer, development engineer, performance engineer, project engineer or similar on a variety of emissions testing and calibration programmes. You will have a sound knowledge of diesel and gasoline engine systems and be a strong communicator who can represent the company in front of major customers. You may also be working within either a variable temperature emissions chamber or a four-wheel drive emissions facility.

Skills/Knowledge;

+ Ideally degree qualified in an engineering discipline; either mechanical, automotive or similar.
+ A good working knowledge of vehicle powertrains/aftertreatment systems either in an automotive, light duty/heavy duty environment.
+ Previous background working in a whole vehicle testing facility.
+ Must have a background in vehicle emissions and fuel economy testing on a chassis dynamometer.
+ A sound knowledge of emissions regulation and legislation.
+ Strong project management skills to deliver customer test programmes on time, to budget, to high quality and to specification.
+ Knowledge of office based programmes such as CAN, data logging, ETAS INCA, Cadet, Concerto, Cameo etc.
