Engineering CAD Specialists – where are you?

Author Guenther Hartig

Technical recruitment of CAD “specialists” is continuing to be an active area of engineering and manufacturing recruitment agencies, especially in Melbourne and Sydney. However, there seems to be a trend away from the traditional titles such as CAD Drafters and CAD Operators to CAD Designers, CAD Engineers and CAD Technicians. 

In essence these jobs require a very highly skilled and capable person to perform an integral and vital component of the product design process. More often than not CAD “people” form a critical link between the engineers and manufacturing interpreting requirements and forming the basis of successful products.

Irrespective of the title, the industry craves talent in this important and growing sector of manufacturing. The most popular packages continue to be AutoCad and Solidworks. Opportunities exist for contract and permanent employment.
