PLC Software Engineer – Greater Manchester – Permanent – c.£37-42k DOE - Special Purpose Machinery

Major plus points – Small & busy local company i.e. plenty of opportunity to see your work come to fruition, plenty of site work involved, not stuck in the office all day!

Samuel Frank Associates require a local PLC Software Engineer to join a team of talented Engineers for a key client in the Greater Manchester area. The successful PLC Software Engineer should have a demonstrable track record of programming control systems within automation from scratch. This position will be split approximately 50/50 between the office and customer sites across the UK.

The PLC Software Engineer will be involved in the full project life cycle and therefore be involved in site based commissioning. This will typically be 1-3 days in the UK and on big projects it may be 1-2 weeks (UK based).

The client requires the successful PLC Software Engineer to be competent in writing software from scratch so Engineers coming from more of a maintenance background may not be well suited. The client is a Siemens and Rockwell solutions partner and most of their work is delivered using Siemens or Rockwell PLCs.

Applicants with experience of writing software for special purpose machinery / material processing machines could be well suited to this opportunity.

The role of PLC Software Engineer requires –

  • PLC programming (typically Allen Bradley and/or Siemens)
  • SCADA / HMI system design (WinCC, FactoryTalkView)
  • Knowledge of inverters and servo drives
  • Assisting with site commissioning and training when required
  • Liaising with customers and provide telephone support
  • A full UK driving licence

The client is a small and growing business and they operate on a flexible basis with their employees. They can tailor projects and packages to individuals depending on what the applicant is looking for and what they’re looking to achieve. This role will suit a PLC Systems Engineer who is passionate about control systems and passionate about delivering a great product and service to customers. This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who not only has the technical knowledge but also has a genuinely good work ethic coupled with a solution driven/can do attitude.

The role is easily commutable from Manchester, Lancashire, Bolton, Bury, Blackburn, Rochdale, Oldham, Stockport, Huddersfield, Halifax and Burnley.
