The Opportunity

We are looking for an experienced Mechanically biased Design Engineer to work for our client who are a specialist in M&E commercial, design, build and maintenance including Electrical fit outs, HVAC, A/C, CCTV, Access Control, Fire and Refrigeration predominantly within the retail and commercial sectors. They are well established as a market leader with over 22 years with around 70 employees, in developing accounts, where their main account is the Cooperative Supermarkets, as well as smaller retail outlets and the Gym Group. The majority of these contracts they have had for over 10 years on receive the jobs on a portal with a pre agreed schedule of rates determining the cost of the job.

For your experience they provide and package which includes a strong base salary plus additional benefits and can match a variety of perks you may already be receiving. The role is office based probably 80% of the time but may require occasional travel to meet clients with Project Managers and complete measurements and site inspections. You'll work on design projects based Uk wide for a variety of clients which will keep things varied. But essentially we need a Design Engineer with experience designing HVAC, ducting, AC and potentially plumbing would be an added bonus.

The Role

As a Design Engineer you will be responsible for overseeing design projects which involve the design of HVAC, A/C and ducting on retail fit out projects. Our client currently outsource this which is very expensive and they are wanting to bring things in house. They currently had AutoCAD and are very open when it comes to design software and will purchase whatever package the selected candidate specialises in or recommends. It's a very busy time for the company with work already scheduled in the diary until the end of Q1 2018. All the work is completed on a pre agreed schedule of rates, and project values range from £25k - 100k+. You'll be managing design for probably 2-4 projects simultaneously at any one time which will keep you busy and you'll have to be used to working to strict deadlines. You'll speak directly to the site manager should there be any issues or you require any measurements etc.

Our client have held the majority of their contracts for over 10 years and have a brilliant reputation for delivery, customer service and a long standing relationship with a lot of the PM's for the client so they have clear expectations on what's needed and examples of previous work completed. They regularly complete 100+ refits on one account alone per year on a rolling program and as a company turnover well in excess of £10m. Ideally the candidate will come from a business of similar nature, M&E contractor or Mechanical Design Contractors but are seeking a move and have experience on the retail side of things.

The Candidate

The ideal Design Engineer will have a background in retail/commercial refits ideally within Supermarkets or similar convenience stores, gyms, or retail stores. This is a role for an experienced Design Engineer who will work closely with the Directors and PM's, overseeing small to medium size design projects, so we would be looking to see previous examples of similar work and clients worked with. This isn't a job for a junior engineer as we need someone to hit the ground running and jump straight into design as our client will be terminating their outsourcing contract on the mechanical side and you will assume this role.

Qualifications/Experience

The Package

Paying £40k-£50k depending on experience plus beenfits
