Sitec has an exciting opportunity for a NVH Engineer - Noise Vibration and Hardness for our client Perkins Engines, at their site in Peterborough. This is a contract role, for an estimated 12 months initially.

A successful candidate will work on engine related Noise Vibration and Harshness (NVH) projects, typically ranging from short duration individual tests to projects up to three months.

The Engineer may work in any number of functional areas requiring an engineering degree, including, but not limited to, basic engineering fundamentals of engines and machines, knowledge of instrumentation for data acquisition, data analysis, report writing and presentation skills. The engineer could be performing test work in the lab, engine test cell or on the final machine installation.

Individuals may have multiple assignments which may require the Engineer to review the work of technicians or other support personnel, provide technical advice to individuals at various levels in the organisation and work with another unit or team. Assignments could be complex in nature and require the Engineer to assume a significant role, either as an individual contributor or as part of a project team, with increasing emphasis on analysing, identifying and applying engineering techniques to solve problems and make recommendations.

Key areas of responsibility encountered in this role may include any or all of the following: problem investigation and resolution; evaluate new products/designs, processes, or systems; communicate results to customers, suppliers, team members, and other business units; collaborate with and support other engineers, managers, marketing personnel, customers and suppliers.

* Requires a bachelor degree in an accredited Engineering discipline plus 3-5 years experience or a master's degree in Engineering.
* It would be preferable for the individual to be experienced in the full breadth of NVH competencies. However, a suitable person may be considered with the following essential skills; knowledge and experience of vibration theory, equipment calibration, data capture, verification of data integrity, analysis of data in both time and frequency domain.
* Also requires excellent analytical skills and lateral thinking. Must have the ability to communicate effectively with team members and others in the work group, as well as employees in other units, customers, and suppliers.
* The role may involve some travel to other Caterpillar facilities or customer sites.
