The Company:
Established nearly a century ago in the UK, this property, construction, and engineering consultancy has steadily expanded across the country. They are dedicated to fostering the growth and advancement of their employees while recognising the importance of nurturing apprenticeships and graduate talent to bolster their engineering teams. Their commitment extends to designing innovative, low-carbon developments that enrich lives and actively participating in charitable endeavors. With approximately 300 technical staff spread across seven offices, they possess the scale to compete effectively with larger corporate consultancies.

Established a decade ago, the Cambridge office has thrived and now boasts around 70 professional staff, including a specialised MEP and Sustainability team of 15 individuals. As an Electrical Design Engineer, you'll report to the Director of MEP and receive support from an Associate who will grant you the autonomy you desire. You'll enjoy diverse projects across East Anglia, encompassing Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Suffolk, and Essex, including assignments in schools, universities, hospitals, research facilities, defence training grounds, listed buildings, and leisure facilities. The relaxed yet supportive working environment fosters collaboration and innovation, making you a key part of a team that values both.

Company Culture:
They prioritise maintaining a healthy work-life balance, offering a half day off at the end of each month and suggesting attendance at the office two to three times a week. The company encourages weekly and monthly social activities, contributing to a staff retention rate exceeding four years, more than double the industry average.

What's in it for you:

  • Competitive salary up to £55K with annual review and increase
  • 5% pension contribution
  • 25 days leave plus additional days for charitable activities.
  • Enhanced maternity and paternity leave
  • Structured CPD program with support for professional accreditation (CEng / MIET)
  • Early finish on Fridays
  • Private healthcare
  • Payment of 2 x Professional memberships
  • Free onsite parking
  • Cycle to work scheme.
  • Flexible and remote working options

Ideal Candidate:
The ideal candidate should have a minimum of three years of experience as an Electrical (Building Services) Design Engineer, capable of attending site, client, and progress meetings. This is an opportunity to experience the difference of working in a truly collaborative and forward-thinking consultancy environment.
