Senior Photovoltaic Installation/ Mechanical Engineer -to £54,000 + c.10% Bonus + Pension 12%

Do you have experience in PV Installation and Mechanical Services Design?

Then have you considered a career move into one of the world's leading and most respected Property Consultancies, that has developed an in-house Multidiscipline Engineering Consultancy.

This role is open to location and can be based from any one of their offices in London, Manchester, Leeds, Bristol, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Cardiff or Belfast.


As a Senior Mechanical Engineer, you will already know how to design and manage projects and build rapport quickly with a project team.

This role will see you working on an exciting client project playing a key part in advising the client on on-site solar and renewable energy initiatives. By building relationships with key clients, you will work with them collaboratively and will have the opportunity to work with and manage external project managers.

You will be responsible for successful delivery of strategic/business transformation projects globally in time, budget, and quality and you will have the autonomy to advise and implement adjustments required to ensure the project runs smoothly.

You may not be unhappy in your current role however, you may be starting to consider your longer-term career options as you feel that your skills are not being fully utilised, overworked and undervalued within your current practice.

Over the past 8 years this global Property Consultancy has developed its own internal M&E Design Consultancy to meet and deliver M&E Design & Project Management to their clients, who in the main are the owners and occupiers of the largest real estate estates portfolios in the world.

Uniquely, they have access to their own client base and do not have to competitively tender for projects, resulting in a less pressurised environment and providing the financial resources to recruit into the M&E team when needed rather than expecting employees to shoulder more pressure and work excessive hours.

Essentially, a client-side role that will give you direct access to clients, working on the client's behalf as part of the client team as the clients representative.

Offering absolute career stability and with growth in mind, due to their success, this global Commercial Property Consultancy has a clear three-year plan to grow their M&E offering by 50% over the next three years, opening a huge ongoing career opportunity for you.

You'll deepen your understanding of Mechanical Design by working client-side in commercial property sector and access to this experience will set you apart from your peers in Design Consultancy.

With an established team of experienced M&E Engineers, from which to continue your leaning and development. There is structured training to CEng and a clear route to progress to Senior level and beyond.

What you'll do:

  • Carry out full detailed design
  • Work directly with clients
  • Lead initiatives related to on-site solar and renewable energy generation, energy storage and sustainability projects.
  • Ensure that the project performance meets the level of quality and target date ensuring the overall integrity within the program.
  • Create regular communication mechanisms on portfolio progress and challenges, and lead prioritisation discussions on required adjustments.
  • Project manage and supervise projects, co-ordinating with other engineering and real estate disciplines
  • Prepare specifications, reports, design drawings and budget costs to programme

Your Experience:

  • Experience in Mechanical Design within the built environment
  • Extensive experience leading initiatives related to on-side solar and renewable energy generation, energy storage and sustainability projects.
  • Experience in climate & energy projects (including demand reduction and renewable energy generation)
  • Working with clients directly and manging projects through to completion

What's in it for you?

As a key player within the MEP division, you'll be designing, leading, and supervising varied and interesting projects across a broad range of high-profile Commercial Buildings and have full autonomy to implement your innovative designs.

You will not only be supported by the M&E team and Partners, but you will also benefit educationally from working closely with the other in-house disciplines across Project Management, Building Surveying and M&E Asset Management. You will lead projects where MEP is crucial to the success of the project and enjoy knowing that your designs are helping future-proof low energy buildings for future generations.

You will be expected to design, manage, and supervise projects co-ordinating with other engineering and real estate disciplines. Carry out detailed design in accordance with industry guides. Prepare specifications, reports, design drawings and budget costs to programme. Supervise project works on site, workmanship, and testing.


As well as an opportunity to work client-side and set yourself apart from all of your peers in Design Consultancy, you will be offered an enjoyable work life balance, they offer a competitive salary, car allowance, significant annual bonus, 12% contributory pension and a host of other flexible package options.

With staff development and retention at the core of its values, they have always promoted from within and still have one of the best levels of employee engagement in the industry.

Rather than being micromanaged, you'll enjoy working autonomously, either at home or in the office - you decide on what works for you, whilst being fully supported at every step.
