Job Description for Senior Drafter

Senior drafters are in charge of drafting effective designs that meet specified requirements for their organization.

In addition, senior drafters are responsible for mentoring junior drafters, overseeing their work and recommending changes. They also take part in training sessions for new staff members, organize drawing sheets, manage an inventory of supplies, and interact with engineers to finalize concepts and reduce possible issues during production. Senior drafters must identify inefficiencies, suggesting changes to designs and final product dimensions. They also create supporting documents that relate to product design and maintenance.
