If you are looking for your next challenge and a chance to join a growing company that is already recognised as a global leader in their field then this is a great opportunity.

The Role:
Reporting to the Field Support Manager, your primary role will be designing the electrical systems that underpin low level system designs.
Systems are predominantly site based. The site types are:
* Main Data Centres
* 20M (or higher) Lattice Steel Tower installs with surveillance equipment installed thereon, with cabling runs from the tower equipment to a communication cabin housed at the base of the towers.
o An alternative design would be for the cables feeding to the tower equipment to come off the tower directly into an existing building.
* Small site types involve communication components installed on steel poles attached to the side of buildings.
All site types will need earthing and lightning protection designs to ensure safety for the equipment and persons operating the equipment or working on or near to the sites.

Main Responsibilities:
* Work with the engineers creating the low-level site designs, to create the electrical site designs.
* Liaise with procurement on the components required to complete the electrical design.
* Install and test the first off electrical site designs.
* Provide the expertise on the electrical test results we need to achieve in order to deliver sites which are electrically safe.
* Provide lightning protections designs within the electrical site designs.
* Training for the Engineering Team and PM's within the company and their in-country partners on installing and testing the electrical designs.
* Extensive overseas travel to customer sites.
The successful candidate will possess the following skill, experience and qualities:
* Relevant Qualifications in Electrical Design and Engineering.
* Demonstrative background in Electrical Design Engineering for comparable companies engaged on site roll out projects, in UK or overseas.
* Demonstrative ability and skills to coach and mentor other members of the engineering team on the electrical designs.
* When not 100% loaded on electrical work, the successful candidate will become available to support the engineering team on an ad-hoc basis so experience of working on IT/Networks would be an advantage and a willingness to go outside of normal comfort zone a pre-requisite.
* Willingness to travel anywhere in the world for periods of 2-3 weeks at a time.
* Will have attention to detail combined with the ability to apply common sense.
* Reliable, energetic and prepared to meet a challenge.
* Able to think outside the box when it comes to resolving issues.
* Accomplished in the use of Microsoft Office Suite
