Yorkshire Permanent

Electrical Engineer - West Yorkshire - Special Purpose Machinery - £25-35k + overtime


Samuel Frank Associates is recruiting for an Electrical Engineer to join a very well established special purpose machine manufacturer in West Yorkshire.  


If you describe yourself as an “all-rounder” with experience of designing electrical systems for special purpose machinery using one of the major design packages such as SolidWorks Electrical, AutoCAD or EPLAN as well as being happy working “hands on” in the workshop and following the project to site, then this is the Electrical Engineer role for you!


The role of the Electrical Engineer will predominantly be based in the design office and workshop with occasional trips to site involved and could be an ideal role for an Electrical Engineer with 3-5 years experience. The client estimates a 70/30 split between being based in house or on customer site.


Key skills and experience required for this Electrical Engineer role include –


  • Competent in the technical aspects of Electrical design and development for special purpose machinery
  • Produce electrical design from concept, to issuing drawings, to production in line with customer needs
  • Control panel wire & build
  • Experience of undertaking technical calculations
  • Experience of working within a multi–skilled environment (i.e. knowledge of electrical and pneumatic/robotic components)
  • Experience of technical projects including working to tight timescales


Applicants with experience of designing Electrical systems for special purpose machinery will be well suited to this role (rather than coming from a process engineering type background) and will need a minimum HNC qualification in a relevant electrical discipline. Applicants who have any experience of Siemens TIA Portal product will be considered favourably.


The role is easily commutable from most of West Yorkshire including places such as Leeds, Bradford, Wakefield, Huddersfield, Halifax and Barnsley.


Candidates must be eligible to work in the UK. Please apply today for an immediate response.
