Design Engineer

Job Description

Design Engineer

If you have strong engineering design experience and a delivery mindset, we want you to help us build a more effective, close-knit and passionate delivery team.

So, what does a Design Engineer do?

Well, you’ll coordinate the electrical, control and instrumentation (EC&I) technical aspects of gas decommissioning projects. You’ll chair technical design meetings and take a lead on producing approved designs and tender packs for EC&I works.

Most of your work on a given project will be front loaded, you’ll be there for the conceptual design stages, producing CAD drawings and getting specifications together, but once the project starts, you’ll take on an assurance role, making sure we get the quality we need.

You’ll need to be an EC&I technical expert. You’ll have knowledge and experience in the design, construction, operation and maintenance of industrial assets and an understanding of CDM Regulations. 

Travel will be part of the job – we have a national portfolio. Most weeks you will be travelling to one of our sites or offices across the UK for a day or two. Therefore, it’s essential you hold a full UK driving licence.

If this feels like you, take a peek at the perks below:

  • A bonus based on personal and company performance

  • Company car

  • 25 days’ holiday (increasing to 26 days' following 2 years' employment) plus statutory holidays – option available to buy extra holiday days

  • A pension scheme where we double match your contribution (maximum Company contribution of 12%)

  • Paid expenses for any business travel and accommodation

  • A flexible benefit scheme where you can opt into a whole host of lifestyle options

  • Access to employee support, care, and assistance helplines

We are National Gas, including National Gas Transmission and National Gas Metering.

In February 2023 we became a standalone business, to maintain and own the Gas Infrastructure in the UK. But more than that, to develop and grow this infrastructure to set us up for a cleaner energy future. A future of Hydrogen.

This means we are currently in a period of both opportunity and uncertainty. While nobody knows exactly what things will look like in a years’ time, those who join the business now will have a unique opportunity to shape the future of Gas Transmission in the UK.

The closing date is 17th March 2023, although in some cases I’ll close the ad early.

I’ll respond to every single application.
