Principal Consultant (Mechanical) – Health Tech


If you could invent something to improve global healthcare, what would it be? What if you could explore answers to this question for a living?

At TTP, you’ll create novel, simple-to-use, and patient-centric technologies. You’ll get to work on technically stimulating and challenging projects with clients ranging from stealth-mode start-ups to multinational corporations. It’s fast-paced and varied work that sits at the intersection of early-stage invention and engineering implementation.

TTP’s work culture allows you to continuously develop. You’ll get to broaden your expertise beyond pure mechanical engineering and into project leadership and strategic business development. You’ll conquer technical challenges and build strong project teams whilst evolving your insight into the healthcare market. As your knowledge and network grow, you’ll get to uncover new business prospects and opportunities for TTP’s medical technology consultancy services.

You’ll also benefit from TTP’s new purpose-built campus with state-of-the-art facilities and an office environment that encourages collaboration. We will learn together and innovate together. It’s a space to invent where ideas count.


You’re likely to be invited to interview if your application includes:

  • A degree in Mechanical Engineering or related discipline with a track record of academic excellence.
  • A demonstrable record of growth and achievement in your professional career.
  • A collaborative, analytical, and structured approach and love to tackle complex technical challenges.
  • Experience of working in a consultancy and/or leading projects and product launches, managing client relationships and multidisciplinary teams is a plus but not a must.

Why TTP?

At TTP, you’ll get to tackle problems that make a tangible difference on a global scale. Here are a couple of case studies to showcase the kind of pioneering inventions you could help create:

Every step of the way, you’ll be supported by multi-disciplinary teams of scientists, engineers, and designers. We’re a business of individuals – however, it’s our deep-seated curiosity around technology that brings us together, and it drives what we do.

You will be free to work autonomously, take initiative to explore skunkworks projects and make an impact from day one.

The whole structure of TTP is designed to help you thrive. With little hierarchy, there are no corporate hoops to jump through.

But we continuously strive to do better, and we fundamentally believe in the power and importance of diversity – both for our community and for the overall success of our business.

We, therefore, encourage applications from all individuals. Whatever your background, whatever your identity: we would love to hear from you.
