Job Description

My client is urgently seeking a talented Principal Mechanical Engineer on a permanent basis to join their busy team in their Croydon office.

Established in the mid 90's, they have been providing innovative building services design solutions that combine both their commercial technical and strategic skills. My client has several offices in the UK allowing them to cover all regions across multiple sectors. Much of their work and project pipeline comes from repeat business working with major UK blue chip clients that appointed them when the company first formed.

The role will involve acting as project leader on selected projects and as part of a larger team on bigger projects. You will be attending principal meetings and making client presentations raising/promoting the level of technical excellence relating to mechanical engineering within the team. You will be working on a variety of interesting projects across varied sectors with the support of your colleagues from Director level down to junior members of staff. The role will of course mean producing drawings and specifications, calculations as well as delegating others to do so.

In order to be considered for this role you will have a degree in Mechanical Engineering or Building Services (Chartered or working towards). Those with an HNC or HND and suitable design experience will also be considered. You must have significant experience of design in building services, post qualification completion. This is a client facing role and therefore client interaction skills are key. Knowledge of British standards, building regulations documents as well as knowledge of HTM's are also very important. This is a very hands on role so knowledge of mechanical software is also paramount.
