Principal Electrical Engineer - London (Hybrid) - To £68K + flexible working and interesting projects

As a Principal Electrical Engineer, you're comfortable leading projects and leading teams. You know when to push back on a contractor, and also know when to stay quiet with a client or an architect. As an Engineer at heart, you enjoy coming up with solutions to complex building services problems, and also enjoy working closely with architects on a variety of buildings including cultural buildings, commercial offices, mixed-use developments, super prime residential developments and also hotels.

You thrive in a fast-paced environment and enjoy collaborating with members of the design team to create low energy, innovative buildings that improve peoples lives.

If this sounds like you, then this Principal role with this medium sized building services and sustainability consultancy will probably appeal.

As a key member of the MEP team, you'll use your previous team management, and project management skills to ensure all projects remain profitable, clients remain happy and that your team of electrical engineers are receiving the support, supervision and mentoring that they need.

You'll be able to utilise all of your knowledge and skills in electrical engineering and sustainability, as you help inspire the next generation of electrical building services engineers. You'll feel good that you are doing your bit to help tackle the climate emergency that we are in as we work together towards achieving a low carbon, circular economy and preserve planet earth for future generations.

Please note this Principal role is with a Building Services and Sustainability consultancy who have designed and delivered a range of famous buildings across the UK and in more exotic places such as Antigua, Dubai, Cambodia and Africa.

  • Ideally Chartered, or a least a member of CIBSE or the IET
