Our client is searching for a person who is an experienced electrical engineer but will also consider an electrical engineer who wants to progress to a broader career in general project electrical engineering.  


Job Description:  


For the right candidate, this position has considerable potential for growth and advancement as the  

company grows. They are looking for a person who is an experienced electrical engineer who may or may not be a qualified engineer, but ideally has experience of electrical design/project management in construction and practical operating conditions of industrial water systems. Ideally that would include experience with industrial wastewater treatment, chemical bulk handling & distribution, ultrapure water for electronics applications and  

therefore including:  


1. Filtration systems  

2. Membrane treatments including reverse osmosis and ultrafiltration  

3. Conventional and electrolytic deionisation systems  

4. Wastewater treatment systems  

5. Chemical bulk handling  


However, this is not essential as in-house training will be provided, some of which will probably be in Germany.  


They will also give additional weight to any candidates having previous experience in the design and preparation of proposals for wastewater treatment plants, either chemical (inorganic) or biological. This type of knowledge would give the correct candidate rather more potential to grow with the company.  


It is particularly important to us that the selected candidate must have practical, proven ability and experience and they will therefore give serious consideration to those with field commissioning and operating experience.
