CAD Design Engineer

We are looking for a highly technical and motivated individual with professional conference & event design experience to join our team in Bristol. 

Job Role

The main responsibilities of the role include, but are not limited to:

  • Creating detailed and accurate build instructions and elevations for bespoke exhibition stands & conference scenery.
  • Taking briefs from Production Managers and clients to determine key criteria for design & build, making recommendations on materials & finish, whilst considering cost, time feasibility and any possible design complications.
  • Working closely with scenic carpenters to see drawings through to production.
  • Produce drawings suitable for 3-axis CNC routing, with an understanding of the constraints of this type of manufacture.
  • Ordering materials as required, whilst accounting for delivery lead times, construction time & event delivery deadlines.

Skills and Experience

The ideal candidate will be a team player, with the ability to work simultaneously across multiple projects. 

Good knowledge of AutoCAD / Vector Works / Inventor is essential, as well as good time management and the ability to work to deadlines.  Our large set workshop is home to a CNC machine and laser cutter; experience of using machinery would be an advantage, although training can be provided if this is of interest.

Personality is key: we are looking for someone with excellent communications skills, a strong work ethic and a sense of humour, who will fit well in with our small team. 


Competitive salary.

20 days’ holiday (increasing with length of services) + Christmas shutdown & bank holidays.
