PLC /SCADA System Engineer - Siemens – Permanent – North Staffordshire – £35-42k DOE + profit related bonus/8% pension contribution

+++Headlines - High calibre people with a professional outlook on delivering a quality service to the their clients and a strong order book+++

Samuel Frank Associates have been instructed by a North Staffordshire based system integrator to find a new addition for their controls team. We’re looking for a PLC / SCADA System Engineer who has experience of writing software using TIA Portal and WinCC.

This opportunity could suit someone with 3-7 years’ experience. All relevant Siemens focussed applications will be considered though.

Key responsibilities of the PLC / SCADA System Engineer include -

  • Programming of control systems from scratch using TIA Portal and WinCC
  • System configuration, including PLC and SCADA configurations to meet project requirements
  • Identifying any functionality changes to be made to core software or core PLC code
  • Production of project documentation including Functional Design Specifications, Project Specific Drawings, Design Risk Assessments & Test Procedures

The client is a small & very well-established system integrator. This means the successful PLC / SCADA Engineer can expect to get involved in all stages of the project life cycle and potentially have a big impact on the business, whilst progressing into a more senior role.

The client’s customers are predominantly based in the North of England and Wales, so any site work will involve short term visits rather than spending weeks/months away at a time.

They have customers in various sectors including chemical, water and steel so they’re not tied to one industry; giving them opportunities to expand in growing industries if one sector they operate in slows up.

This opportunity will suit a capable PLC / SCADA System Engineer who is comfortable dealing face to face with customers and has the technical ability to deliver small to medium size projects from start to finish.

The client’s premises are easily commutable from the following locations – Stoke, Congleton, Crewe, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Leek, Middlewich and Nantwich.
