CAD recruitment agency listing

The use of computer aided design(CAD) systems in the sphere of general engineering involves the creation, alteration and optimisation of designs with the use of specialist software.

There are several routes to a successful career in the CAD engineering sector. Companies advertising for experienced designers will often require a degree in a related scientific or engineering discipline. However, many companies and recruitment agencies have openings for trainee designers who can demonstrate the appropriate experience and a keen interest in the field. Designers are often required to plan their own schedules, manage budgets and meet tight deadlines, so an organised and considered approach to work is essential. Most CAD projects are part of much broader strategies, so effective communication skills and the ability to work as part of a team are essential.

Large employers in this sector include dedicated design and concept agencies, video game producers, conceptual art agencies and manufacturing companies. Employment opportunities are usually limited to people with direct experience of current modelling packages based on CAD and CAE systems, and large, multinational firms will often insist that staff remain mobile and flexible for nationwide or international design projects.

There is fierce competition for CAD engineering vacancies in the UK at the moment, but those who can demonstrate specific skills relating to key industries will always enjoy the best chances of success. Salaries in the industry range between £25,000 and £50,000, but excellent results often attract substantial bonuses.
