Are you an expert when it comes to working with electronic components? Have you worked on obsolescence management or had some exposure to this responsibility before? Would you like to join a globally renowned engineering business and progress your career to its potential? If so, we would love to hear from you!

Morson International are currently recruiting for an Obsolescence Engineer to join a large engineering business based in Dorset. In this role you will be working as part of a close-knit team of Engineers providing support and management to component issues associated with manufacturing and test requirements. This is a very varied role where you will have the chance to be involved with both brand-new product but also legacy equipment where components are no longer supported.

In this role you will:

  • Provide advice on obsolescence management processes and strategies available;
  • Provide advice on the selection of components to ensure that contractual requirements are satisfied before approval is authorised;
  • Provide a service to approve new components that are to be entered onto the company ERP system;
  • Validate items lists before issue in respect of component definition and approval;
  • Perform component and obsolescence engineering; including substitution and justification of alternative parts to meet project/customer reliability, safety and legislative requirements.
  • Perform reviews of and action product change notices (PCNs) provided by component suppliers or as a result of obsolescence monitoring performed by third party suppliers;
  • Perform analysis of existing equipment to establish requirements for component replacement or refurbishment;
  • Provide support to the manufacturing and test departments to assist in the resolution of build and test problems;
  • Produce technical reports, clearly identifying the preferred course of action and why after analysis of problems;
  • Liaise with suppliers regarding supply and support of third-party equipment;
  • Support supplier audits in relation to component storage, traceability, testing facilities and counterfeit avoidance;

To be successful in this role, you will have extensive knowledge and experience of working with electronic components; being able to provide support and advice on obsolete components, having confidence to provide recommendations in selection and redevelopment. Ideally you will have worked with ERP/MR systems before holding a good understanding of how to work with this type of system and the importance of the information held within it. Prior experience of working in obsolescence management would be highly advantageous as would an understanding of practices such as BS EN IEC 62402:2019.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced Electronics Engineer to progress their career and join a globally renowned engineering business!
