Role Overview

This is a full time, permanent position for an experienced electrical design engineer, responsible for taking projects from concept to completion.

You will assist with early stage concept designs and reports, and later you will carry out calculations and prepare drawings and specifications for all the electrical services. You will work with a small team alongside the project mechanical engineers. You will also be responsible for the construction phase of the projects in attending site progress meetings and generally monitoring the installation of the services designed. You will be flexible in your approach to your work as one of the practice’s key strengths is that it does not employ a rigid ‘one size fits all’ management system.
