Graduate Electrical Controls & Automation Engineer

March 2021

About Us

We are an independent Systems Integrator with a 30-year track record in providing flexible Robotic Automation Solutions.  We rely on our engineering team to resolve our customer's production problems with creative, robust and cost-effective robotic solutions. We strongly believe that employees are key to the success of our business and we have a strong team whose skills, knowledge and commitment to excellence have given us an outstanding reputation in our field.  As an essential part of our strategy to continually develop the skill base within our company, we are looking for an Electrical Engineering Graduate to join our team in 2021.

The Opportunity

This opportunity will ideally suit an enthusiastic, theoretical, and practical engineer who has graduated with a degree in Electrical/Electromechanical Engineering.

From day one you will be working within a team with real responsibilities, and you will be encouraged to develop your technical skills through various on-the-job learning experiences.  You will be supported by a small but hugely experienced multi-disciplined team of engineers.

You will be expected to contribute ideas and become proactively involved in the development of new concepts and designs from an early stage.  Your main areas of responsibility will include:

  • Electrical Control System Design
  • PLC Software Design
  • HMI Software Design
  • Robot Programming/Simulation
  • System Documentation
  • Commissioning
  • On-site Commissioning/Fault Finding and Customer Acceptance
  • Provision of Technical Guidance to the Automation and System Build Teams

Multi-skilled engineers are a real asset to our business and so the development of Mechanical Design, 3D Modelling and Robot Simulation skills will also be encouraged.

The successful applicant will have the opportunity to demonstrate their leadership through ongoing project management opportunities, paving the way for a successful career in a lead engineering role within the organisation.

Your professional development is equally important to us and you will be fully supported in your chosen professional development and qualifications through IET or similar.

Our Requirements

You must hold a Minimum 2.2 honours degree in Electrical Engineering gained at a UK university.  Graduates should have a strong knowledge of electrical principles along with a proven interest in controls and/or automation.

Over time this role will become customer facing, and therefore you will need to have excellent verbal and written communication skills.  You will need to be self-motivated and be able to demonstrate why you believe you are strongly suited to this role.

As there will be a requirement to visit customer sites, a full UK driving licence will be essential.  You must have the right to work in the UK at the start of your employment.


Competitive salary with 6 monthly reviews during the first 2 years plus paid overtime, profit related bonus scheme, pension scheme, life cover and 25 days holiday.
