About the role

BWB Consulting has an exciting opportunity for an experienced Electrical Building Services Engineer to be based in our Leeds Office.

The position is predominantly Leeds based although travel to projects through the UK and to BWB’s network of offices will form a normal part of the role. The successful applicant will demonstrate the ability to take active involvement in the electrical design consecutively on a range of projects. You will need to have both the ability and appetite to mentor junior members of the engineering teams.

Although the successful candidates expertise will be in electrical building services engineering design they will also be required to take an interest, understand deliverables and issues regarding the mechanical building engineering systems including co-ordination between engineering systems to a point where they are comfortable and competent to report on these elements both internally and to external client and project teams.

The individual shall possess a ‘hands-on’ approach and capability in electrical building services design. They shall have the ability to attend and where appropriate lead internal meetings; interface with sales representatives; attend external meetings with clients and project teams and undertake building services condition surveys. You must also demonstrate an aptitude, and preferably an ability, to effectively delegate design responsibility to others and act in a mentoring role to less experienced staff.

The role has been created due to the continued expansion of the mechanical and electrical building engineering services team within BWB’s Sustainable Building Services discipline and provides the opportunity to add value to a busy team while receiving development support and exposure to a range of design tools captured within the BIM environment.
