Contract Type


Consortio have partnered with a leading shipping engine supplier who are expanding their team in Europe. With over 250 employees around the world, our client is looking for a Performance Technical Expert to join their team in Switzerland. Having taken over the legacy design and R&D of a major competitor, the performance team has seen a 120% increase in orders of modern and efficient engineers and propulsion systems – because of this huge success, our client would like to continue growing their team.

As a Mechanical and Performance expert, you will be expected to perform root cause analysis of mechanical issues and/or failures of both 2 and 4 stroke engines on a range of commercial deep sea ships. In addition to this, you will be responsible for updating product documentation, report writing and technical troubleshooting. Due to the global reach our client has, you should expect to travel globally, perhaps up to 10 days at a time, 4 or 5 times a year and spend time on board a ship in service.


To be considered for the job you should have:


  • A BSc or MSc in Marine/Mechanical Engineering
  • An EU passport
  • Knowledge of marine fuels and lubricants would be hugely beneficial
  • Knowledge of diesel and DF engines
  • Experience in writing analytical reports
