Role: Electrical Design Engineer

Duration: 6 months (extension options)

Rate: £400 - £450 per day (Inside IR35, via Umbrella)

Location: Tipton 5 days a week in Office (Mon-Fri)

Our client, a leading company in the utilities industry, is seeking a talented Electrical Design Engineer to join their dynamic team in Tipton.

Role Introduction:

Planners design our network and work with our Engineers to construct, reinforce, alter and replace our equipment. As you can imagine, the pace is fast, and if you join us, our customers will trust you to provide excellent service and minimise any impact. Right now we are looking for a Electrical Design Engineer to join us at Tipton.

Main Responsibilities:

You'll be hands-on, responsible for project design, costing and quoting and the replacement/diversion/reinforcement of existing LV & HV electricity network assets. Working primarily on the high-voltage network, you'll take care of the costs and plan for substation and cable replacements.

You'll also:

Prepare capital projects and off-site coordination.

Design schemes that align with our Engineering Directives.

Prepare plans, schematics, wayleaves, notices, materials schedules, terms, quotations and agreements.

Liaise with Senior Planner to meet all overall network requirements.

Determine what, how and cost for individual projects, and approve them.

Resolve customer complaints.

Set up scheme files and close down on completion.

Monitor costs on individual capital sanctions, identify and comment on variances, and take corrective action.

Visit sites and work from developer plans.

Candidate Requirements:

You may already have experience as a Planner, so you'll understand our procedures and standards and already understand our customers and their needs. If you haven't worked with us before, then you'll have an electrical background with a qualification to match - perhaps you've worked in internal electrical planning. Either way, strong communication skills are key, so you can coordinate jobs and clearly explain issues. As you'll be in control of your diary, we'll need you to be resilient, organised and able to prioritise your workload. Team players thrive in this role, and you'll be used to taking a proactive and more consultative approach. Experience using iPads, computers and our additional software is a must.

You will need to be mobile throughout the area as you may be required to undertake standby duties.

Consideration will be given to you on a designate basis, if you do not possess all the skills required to undertake the role at present but have the confidence and ability to reach the necessary standards with appropriate training.

If you are a motivated and driven professional, ready to take on a challenging role as a Planner, apply now! Join our client's team and contribute to their ongoing success!

Candidates will ideally show evidence of the above in their CV to be considered.

Please be advised if you haven't heard from us within 48 hours then unfortunately your application has not been successful on this occasion, we may however keep your details on file for any suitable future vacancies and contact you accordingly.
