Midlands Permanent

Project Engineer -  Industrial Controls Background – Permanent – North Staffordshire – c.£35-40k DOE + profit related bonus

Samuel Frank Associates have been instructed by a North Staffordshire based system integrator to find a new addition for their engineering team. We’re looking for a Project Engineer who has experience of PLC /  SCADA software who has the aptitude and desire to want to develop into a Project Manager.

This opportunity could suit someone with 4-8 years’ experience, however all relevant applications will be considered.

Key responsibilities of the Project Engineer include -

  • Ensure that the client’ system is designed fit-for-purpose and adheres to the user specification, project budget and schedule
  • All aspects of the Project Lifecycle from specification (URS, FDS, SDS) through to commissioning and final project documentation.
  • Production of project documentation including Functional Design Specifications, Project Specific Drawings, Design Risk Assessments, Test Procedures, Operator / Maintenance manuals and training manuals
  • System configuration, including PLC and SCADA configurations to meet project requirements
  • Demonstrable experience of PLCs, Siemens TIA Portal, SIMATIC S7-400 & S7-300 would be extremely useful for the position

The client is a small & very well-established system integrator. Their 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 Project Engineer who is comfortable dealing face to face with customers and has the 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.
