Job Description

Job Title:Design Engineer
Location:Leeds
Salary:£35k - £40k plus great benefits

The Opportunity
Are you a Design Engineer looking to make a difference? Do you like challenging yourself?
Want to join a multi-national organisation with a heart (they do exist!)?

We're looking for a Design Engineer with a background in electrical or electronic engineering to take on a brand new role with lots of scope within our medium voltage development team.

The Role
As our new Design Engineer you'll be working in a team of 8 to take ownership of orders for our MV switchgear equipment from tender through to technical issues. This is a varied and interesting role where you'll be able to manage all the technical aspects of contract delivery.

Working alongside other internal teams as Design Engineer you'll be involved in projects from the tender stage, ensuring the proposed solution is going to be feasible and within spec. From there you'll prepare electrical design schematics using AutoCAD and EPLAN against the spec and provide technical support to the manufacturing teams during production. Post-production we'll also need your words of advice during installation and commissioning.

The Candidate
If you're an electrical or electronic Design Engineer with big ambitions we'd like to hear from you!

Whilst we'll provide you with a full range of product training to be able to hit the ground running you will need previous technical development experience and a good working knowledge of AutoCAD. If you know anything about EPLAN this would be a big help.

The Design Engineer role will involve a lot of collaboration so to really thrive in the job you're going to need to be a people person with good communication skills at both technical and non-technical levels.

The Company
We are one of the world's largest energy management companies and believe in providing accessible, reliable and sustainable power for everyone. As an employer we want you to be proud that you work for us and, in return, we'll give you something to be proud of including structured career progression and training opportunities.

Working from our Leeds office as a Design Engineer you'll be part of a close knit, diverse team developing switchgear products which currently have a 90% market share in the industry. We're a big company with a small company feel so you'll get to know us all pretty well, we think that's a good thing!

The Package
£35k - £40k (dependent upon experience)
8% bonus
Pension
Private medical cover
25 days holiday plus 8 bank holidays
