Electrical Design Engineer
circa £35k DOE


I'm looking to speak with an ambitious Electrical Design Engineer that's keen to develop their career by joining an established, successful, and forward-thinking engineering firm delivering the design, manufacture, assembly, and testing of high integrity electrical and mechanical solutions to a range of demanding high hazard industries.

The Job
As an experienced member of the electrical design team you will have responsibility across the following areas, ideally to include close collaboration with manufacturing / production teams on bespoke electro-mechanical assemblies:

  • Producing project estimates, specs, and layouts to provide technical support to tender and bid activity for new customers and project variation proposals to existing customers.
  • Producing schematic, layout and block cable diagrams with a strong appreciation for manufacturability and value engineering, safety, quality and customer approval.
  • The setup, control and safe completion of plant installation and commissioning activity in the workshop and on client sites.

The Candidate

With a background in project based electrical engineering for high hazard sectors you will be a confident individual capable of working independently and guiding others, from concept to delivery. Previous time spent working closely with other engineering disciplines on collaborative delivery projects is key, and you would be expected to demonstrate both knowledge and experience in the following areas:

  • Autodesk / AutoCAD Electrical
  • MCC (Motor Control Centre), control and instrumentation panels
  • Design validation in respect to safety related parts for a control system
  • Programming and commissioning of PLC and HMI

What's on offer?

This role will suit someone looking to build on their existing EC&I knowledge to deliver solutions across the full lifecycle of a project, from concept to delivery, and to take ownership of a variety of challenging but rewarding packages of work.

In reward for this, a solid base salary is accompanied by 6% pension, private healthcare, a 36.5hr working week and additional company benefits.
