Controls Engineer - Leicester - Salary circa £26,000 - £32,000

My Midlands-based client is an established, and respected market leader in the engineering and manufacturing sectors, with increasing annual revenues and a growing workforce.

As a direct result of increasing orders, tender wins and sustained growth, we are now seeking to appoint a Controls Engineer, whose main responsibilities will be to design electrical schematics and programme software for use with bespoke automated machines.

The successful candidate is likely to have previously worked as part of a multi-discipline team where both Mechanical Design Engineers and Electrical CAD Engineers interact to produce suitable designs and schematics for complex machinery builds.

As well as this, the Controls Engineer will be expected to generate BOMs, test reviews and various other technical product documentation.

There will be a regular need to liaise with colleagues involved in Production so as to support the management of the project as a whole and there may be an occasional need to meet with customers, in order to support Sales colleagues. Applicants are also expected to be comfortable speaking to suppliers when specified products are required.

This is an important role within the business and provides an excellent opportunity to join a successful Engineering company that is able to offer on-going training and development for applicants seeking to build on previous experience.

Optrec Ltd specialise in the recruitment of skilled Engineers throughout the UK. We have been appointed by the client to provide Employment Agency services on their behalf.
