Our client is recognized as one of the UK’s market leaders in the area of automated materials handling solutions, and as a result of an ongoing program of strategic growth and development, they are now looking to recruit an enthusiastic, dynamic and highly self-motivated Senior Electrical and Control Systems professional to complement their respected and established team. Reporting to the Electrical Team Leader, the successful candidate will be responsible for leading a project team of Engineers (typically up to 3 reports) and undertaking the development of electrical design solutions and PLC programs for the complete range of client projects.
Tasked with the design, planning and development of electrical design solutions using EPlan and AutoCad whilst ensuring compliance with relevant industry standards, you will produce accurate and complete specifications, costings and time plans for each assigned project, whilst ensuring the delivery of electrical designs and control systems in line with specification, budgetary and timescale constraints.
Additionally, you will mentor the existing team of Electrical and Control Systems engineers to develop their own key technical skills whilst both developing and testing the PLC control software before following projects through to on site commissioning at customer premises. You will assist both the installation and projects departments to ensure that the electrical design and control system solutions meet their designed and contracted specification, investigating and correcting on site problems with electrical/ electronic hardware/software where required, and supporting the go live phase of the project cycle.
With exceptional technical and communication abilities to allow participation in design planning and internal / external meetings as required, this is an exciting opportunity for a capable and experienced individual to develop effective control systems supported by accurate and relevant documentation, and in accordance with budget, cost and agreed timescales and promote a professional on site image during commissioning and testing, whilst maintaining an up to date knowledge of industry trends and innovations and continually improving efficiency within a globally renowned business, suiting an experienced individual with essential demonstrable Siemens PLC experience and the flexibility to travel internationally where required (so a full driving licence is also a prerequisite for the position).
