Mechanical Engineering Consultant – Health Tech


As a Consultant at TTP, you’ll get to use your mechanical engineering skills to translate complex new technologies into simple-to-use, patient-centric solutions. And if you’re not from the world of health tech, that doesn’t matter. Your ability to apply critical thinking and technical theory to pursue real-world solutions will make a difference here.

You’ll join our Drug Delivery and Digital Health (DDDH) team based within the Health Tech business unit. The team helps invent novel patient-centred solutions, from home-based monitoring systems for chronic conditions to curative cancer treatments. It’s the kind of tech that makes a difference to people’s lives globally.

TTP has built a longstanding reputation as the partner of choice for a wide range of organisations, from big pharma and biotech companies to emerging digital health start-ups. Our deep technical expertise and market knowledge mean that clients come to us when they need to solve a problem that has yet to be solved. The chances are, we’ve seen something like it before.

All this means you’ll get to work on the most challenging and interesting projects. You might get to invent a pioneering surgical navigation system or new mechanisms to facilitate robotic surgery. And you’ll get all the tools and the right environment to do your best work.

You’ll find that professional development is continuous throughout your career at TTP – whether you’re an experienced project leader or looking to become a fully-rounded consultant. Together we’ll ensure you’re capable of conquering complex technical challenges, building strong project teams, and evolving your insight into the healthcare market to uncover new business prospects and areas for our medical technology consultancy services.


If you’re an experienced Mechanical Engineer with a track record of achievement and academic excellence, your CV will appeal to the hiring team. An in-depth interview process will explore your ability to apply and communicate the first principles of mechanical engineering to resolve a broad range of real-world problems.

We want to hear about your collaborative, analytical, and structured approach to tackling complex technical challenges.
