Job Description


My client is a market leading specialist vehicle manufacturer. Due to increased orders an opportunity has arisen to appoint an experienced Electrical Systems Engineer on a permanent basis to expand the Electrical Systems Team. The focus of the role is to design, develop and prototype vehicle electrical systems (including battery charging, lighting, power distribution, and radio communications) to produce new wiring harnesses to integrate or run alongside the existing wiring loom on the vehicle.

Applicants must hold a technical degree-level or equivalent engineering qualification (such as electrical engineering, aeronautical, aerospace, automotive, control systems, robotics, etc.). Candidates must also have experience of designing and building electrical systems for vehicles / aircraft / complex machinery, from concept through prototype and testing phases, and onto production including producing BOMs (Bill of Materials). You will need to have knowledge and experience of fault finding and diagnosing (using both OEM diagnostic systems and traditional methods). Previous experience of assembling electrical wiring looms and harnesses to automotive and/or military specifications is highly desirable. You should also be able to modify OEM electrical systems including integration of additional electrical circuits and overriding control settings and functions. On this note, PCB design and prototyping experience is desirable but not essential.

Excellent interpersonal skills and strong communication skills, both written and verbal, are essential for this role. Equally as important is the ability to work well in a team. This role will involve both domestic and overseas travel so a driving licence and passport are highly desirable. There is also good potential career progression associated with this role, together with a very competitive salary and package.

More information is available upon application.
