Summary of vacancy

Are you a qualified Electrical & Controls Technician / Engineer, customer facing and ideally working in the water treatment industry? Do you have experience in electrical panel design, including PLC integration and commissioning, in manufacturing environments? If you have a natural curiosity that will prompt you to explore where we could be working smarter, we’d love to hear from you.                                                                      

SUEZ Water Technologies and Solutions (SWTS) understand that water is a scarce resource and we pride ourselves in tackling this problem head on, finding cutting edge solutions to allow our customers to recover and reuse industrial water.

Our Peterborough facility has two functional areas; an engineering facility that designs and builds mobile water treatment equipment / systems and a plant that regenerates ion exchange resin, working with cutting edge membrane technologies to provide mobile water treatment equipment for customers.

What will you be doing as a Project Engineer?

Providing Electrical and Control (E&C) technical expertise, as a Project Engineer, you will be the important connection between multiple teams, from sales & commercial through to mobile project management and manufacturing plant. Reporting to the Engineering Manager your day-to-day responsibilities will be driven by the plant ‘shop floor’ in Peterborough and by global asset engineering, with specific tasks including:

What will you need and what can you gain?

Flexible and with great people skills, you won’t mind helping out with other tasks when we are busy and it’s an ‘all hands’ situation, but you will need a background in water treatment systems, or a similar process industry, along with:

  • Minimum HNC (or equivalent) with industrial training or Degree in Electrical, Control, Industrial or related subject
  • Electrical & Control design and drawing capability, including panel design and PLC integration
  • Experience working to European standards (BS/IEC/UL/AS) and of leading I/O checks, commissioning and start-ups
