Reporting to the Design Manager in this challenging and varied new role you will be closely involved in each project throughout the process from concept and design, to detailed production drawings, and technical support for the operations team during the build process.

At Dickey Boats we build customised boats—design changes happen regularly!  Every day you will be working across a range of projects at varying stages, drawing on and building your skills and knowledge in metal fabrication, mechanical design, marine systems, interior design, schematic diagrams, graphic design and presentation.

  • A relevant tertiary qualification in design highly desirable though not essential
  • Competent and thoughtful liaison with workshop teams to assist with production issues
  • Commitment to quality, teamwork and health and safety

You will also need a genuine commitment to continual improvement of the product, systems, processes, and will enjoy a working environment that offers a constant challenge of your own skills, knowledge, and abilities.

This role is a great opportunity in a growing business committed to outstanding quality and customer experience.  You will have real opportunities for variety and career growth.
