World Leader in Blood Glucose Monitoring, Abbott Diabetes Care designs, develops and manufactures glucose monitoring systems for use in both home and hospital settings.
We have a Centre of Excellence in Witney for the manufacture of electrodes and biosensors used by patients and healthcare professionals for the day-to-day management of diabetes. The Operations group is the largest team in the Witney facility, producing high volumes of test strips and biosensors each year to the stringent quality standards demanded by European and US authorities and our internal quality systems.
As a result of strong business growth, industry-leading product development in the biosensor business and a long-term commitment to high volume manufacturing in our Witney Centre of Excellence, we have an opportunity for a Junior Project Engineer to join our Operations Group, working within the biosensor manufacturing area of the business.
The role of the Junior Project Engineer is to provide support and assistance with Engineering and Systems projects and other activities, whether this be working with system engineers supporting software validation, identify database performance issues and make improvements, database queries and data analysis, prototype rig design, machine specification, testing/characterisation of process and equipment, or designing experiments to prove machine/product functions. Continuous Improvement is an important part of our site's culture and as such, you will be heavily involved in proposing and contributing to initiatives and projects that improve our operations.
You will be able to devise, plan, carry out and report on experiments and other data collection, leading to the progression of engineering projects, and offer a flexible approach to work to provide assistance with the wider Engineering projects as and when required
You will need to have completed a HNC or HND in a science or computing field, as a minimum, and ideally bring engineering/technical experience, for example understanding databases, technical drawings, problem solving, use of CAD systems, designing tests and experiments. You will be PC literate, and ideally offer experience of managing projects either through industry experience of academic studies.
As we operate in a highly-regulated industry, you must be able to demonstrate the ability to follow procedures and create accurate documents and records of your work.
This is a fantastic opportunity to become a valued member of a highly skilled Engineering team working with brand new state-of-the-art automation in a fast growing area of our business. Engineering skill is key to us, with members working in areas including projects, process, production, systems, software, R&D and machine vision. We also have our own fully equipped workshop.
