  • Knowledge and experience of a broad range of electrical control equipment and its application in automated and safety-related systems.

  • PLC or SCADA programming experience
  • Ideally hold an Engineering degree


  • A good understanding of the safety lifecycle for EC&I safety systems.
  • Experience in design, substantiation, verification & validation, safety justification of high-integrity software-based protection and/or safety control systems.
  • Development, software testing techniques and experience in installation and commissioning of PLC / SCADA systems.
  • Knowledge of measurement system specification including instrumentation performance.
  • Experience in deploying novel technologies in high-integrity control and instrumentation applications.
  • Working knowledge of low-voltage electrical systems.
  • Experience with Model-Based Systems Engineering and other systems engineering approaches.
  • Chartered engineer status with a relevant professional body (or experience necessary to qualify for such).

My client has a range of roles, and you will work on projects relating to national infrastructure and national defence, so some really complex, unique but exciting projects to work on. Also, their culture is excellent, with some true flexible working.

They are offering salaries starting at £35,000 for more junior candidates and up to £70,000 for more senior candidates, with additional benefits of 15% pension, private healthcare and at a senior level potential car allowance.
