Job Summary

Would you be interested in the opportunity to join a billion pound Energy Management Company that design, manufacturer and service all of their products? One of the world's largest Energy companies are looking to expand their engineering team that focus on MV and LV Switchgear. Our client are forward thinking, and voted in the top 10 companies to work for in the UK.

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 your team and the clients, help to 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 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;

*£38k - £40k (may stretch a little more for someone with right experience)

The Progression

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