Job Summary

Location:

Our UK&I T&D team is spread across Aberdeen, Ashford, Basingstoke, Birmingham, Bristol, Cambridge, Cardiff, Croydon, Dublin, Edinburgh, Exeter, Glasgow, Leeds, London Aldgate, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham, Plymouth, St Albans, Hertfordshire, South East. If you are not located near a main office, we will consider a remote-working arrangement.

Job Summary:

This role will involve leading the design of EHV and HV cable systems, across full project life cycle, from feasibility studies to detailed design for Contractors. The role is focused on the design of cable installations and requires extensive experience of cable design and the use of CYMCAP and the key associated modules. The role will also provide the opportunity to work on the design of other electricity transmission and distribution infrastructure, such as overhead lines and substations; being willing to work on these broader aspects will be essential.

The Team:

Our T&D team primarily focuses on the management, design and supervision of electrical power projects at both transmission and distribution voltages ranging from 1kV to greater than 500kV. We operate as a virtual team across offices in the UK & Ireland, with the wide variety of skills required to meet the demands of our wide range of Clients, with multi-office project teams being established as necessary. As a team we provide a broad range of services in the sector covering substations, overhead lines, cables at both transmission and distribution level, HVDC systems, subsea interconnectors, specialist network studies, earthing and lightning protection design, renewable generation grid connection and balance of plant design, EV and electrification of heat infrastructure, plus others. The team acts as the centre of excellence for T&D engineering in UK&I as well as Europe, Middle East and Africa, offering opportunities to work on projects abroad if interested.

The Role:

You will be responsible for both leading and contributing to design of new cable installations, taking into account all factors impacting the design and selection of the cable. You must have understanding of the requirements for designing HV cable installations and be an experienced user of CYMCAP or other relevant specialist software (e.g. COMSOL). The current workload is primarily for onshore cable installation, but experience of offshore cable design would be very useful.
