Job Description

I have a genuine opportunity for a senior and a principal design engineer to work for a consultancy in Manchester who have a reputation for delivering excellence on whatever project they are involved with.



The board of directors have a wealth of experience in Building Services and were also key members of an International Building Services Consultancy. The capabilities were further strengthened with the addition of another director which then meant this recession proof consultancy became a major player in Building Services. 



Over the years their success has developed from the core values that they lead by. They include understanding client needs and aspirations and working with them to help realise their vision, demonstrating technical competency at all levels, team working to create better projects and working environments, and finally, ensuring communication through all involvement of projects and delivering clear concise and accurate documentation to guarantee success.



At present they are seeking a senior and a principal electrical design engineer to join their busy team to take on projects and be responsible for detailed design on a very large scale project in the City of Manchester. The project in question will run over the course of the next 10 years and includes various sectors. They include mixed use, commercial, residential, retail, healthcare and leisure.

You will also need to provide technical support and check current intermediate and junior electrical engineers work, ensuring they are on track at all times.  



There is a real opportunity here for someone to take on a role gaining exposure to all aspects of the projects from inception to completion, meeting clients, running projects, mentoring junior engineers whilst developing your own skills through experience and training.



To work for my client you will need to have experience in building services and from at least senior level up, or ready to make the transition from intermediate level. A degree or equivalent in building services or electrical engineering is a must. You will also be fully conversant with relevant lighting and power calculation software Amtech and/or Relux/Dialux. Exposure to Hevacomp also advantageous.



To conclude, my client are providing the perfect platform for someone to hit the ground running and take ownership of projects whilst supporting your team. You will also have the support of your peers in this vary collaborative and friendly environment. They really believe in team work and providing a happy working environment. They are well aware of the pressure that this industry presents and are keen to do everything they can to alleviate this pressure so you can really focus on what you do best.  



To reiterate, this is a senior or principal requirement for an engineer with detailed design experience. If you are interested please do send your CV to or contact Alex for a confidential discussion regarding the role.
