Location: Stoke on-Trent
Package: £38,500k - £42,500k salary + bonus, employer contribution pension, private health, pool car, share scheme, 28 days holiday + 8 bank holidays

Are you an Electrical Engineer who has a mix of technical knowledge and commercial nous around MV switchgear?

Maybe you're an engineer who would like to make the transition into a full tendering role, dealing with customers and managing contracts.

Job Summary

Would you be interested in the opportunity to join a major energy management company that design, manufacturer and service all of their own products? One of the UK's most successful energy companies are looking to expand their engineering team that focus on MV Switchgear up to 33kV. Our client are forward thinking, and voted in the top 10 companies to work for in the UK.

These roles don't come about often so if you have a strong electrical distribution background installing switchgear/transformers and are looking to move into a tendering role this could be for you. Alternatively you may be a graduate with 1-2 year's experience looking to land that long term role.

The Role

You will be a key individual in the tender process and will be getting involved with the project at the early stages. Together with the team you will be developing and detailing the scope of the project and then ensuring any final quotations are in line with customer requirements. To achieve this you will spend time with the customer understanding their needs and equipment specifications and then with the support and assistance of yours and the other company department's help formulate final proposals. You will be required to ensure tenders are ready and prepared in line with customer deadlines, so at times you will be under pressure.

You would need to be:

A passionate and enthusiastic engineer with an electrical background who has either moved into a more commercial sales focused role or is looking for such an opportunity.

You will enjoy the support of a team of committed and skilled engineers and in return be ready to help and assist your team mates whenever you can. You will be working with a team of straight talkers who enjoy communicating in simple ways to ensure everyone is clear about the plan and strategy being used. It will be a nurturing environment where you can develop in the long term.

You will have experience working with one or some of the following:

MV Switchgear as well as experience with bids, tendering or proposals. You will have good attention to detail, enjoy meeting customers and building relationships with your likeminded colleagues. This role will suit an engineer who is focused on continuous professional development and career progression.

Typical Duties

Technical:

*You'll be tasked with quoting switchgear installation on behalf of clients
*Assist in preparation of bills of material.
*Pre visits to assess access requirements.

Commercial:

*The ability and confidence to work alone on own initiative
*Ensure bids work financially in terms of cash flow, risk and financial analysis

You`ll present a professional and efficient image to customers and will be providing technical support to internal and external customers when asked.

Industry Leading Package

The company really look after you and view employment as a long term game, the package includes the following;

*£38,500k - 42,500k basic salary (may stretch a little more for someone with right experience)
*Annual bonus
*Salary review
*Overtime
*Pool car
*Pension
*Share Scheme
*28 days holiday + 8 holidays
*Healthcare
*Life insurance

The Progression

Our client look to invest the best part of £30k -£50k in every new employee over your initial and ongoing training periods with them.

This will all be paid for and you'll be put up in nice hotels, while this training takes place, not to mention how it will look in terms of qualifications gained on your CV.
