Mechanical Design Engineer - French Speaking (closed)
French speaking Mechanical Engineer
For nearly 40 year this excellent building service engineering practice has worked with the world?s leading architects to create beautifully engineered buildings. Their building services engineers bring an understanding of the whole building, from early stage design concept to the detail of delivery.
Their success is a result of their people. To produce the highest quality and most innovative engineering they need people who can think both creatively and practically. They are the originators of architectural engineering ? the drive for engineers to care as much about the finish of the buildings as the architects. Their engineers understand both the big picture and small detail of a building, and aim to deliver beautifully engineered low-energy buildings that work. Their engineers are encouraged to generate and develop their own ideas, handling a wide range of technical issues.
What they are looking for
They are looking for a mid-level mechanical or M&E engineer, with around 6 years of design experience, to join one of the engineering teams in their London office as soon as possible. they are attracting an increasing amount of work in French-speaking countries, and as a result, a good level of spoken and written French is a requirement for this role. The engineer will be required to take part in technical meetings held entirely in French, and to produce drawings and reports in French.
The right person is likely to be chartered or working towards chartership, and will have a detailed understanding of HVAC system design. Experience of public health and electrical design would also be beneficial, as would experience of site-work.
The applicant will have experience of leading small groups of engineers, either taking primary responsibility for smaller projects, or leading the mechanical design on mid-size or large projects.
The successful candidate will be a self-starter, who will work well under pressure and be able to prioritise a highly varied workload. The individual must be a team player, able to give and take direction with credibility at all levels and instil confidence within a multi-talented team.
This is an excellent opportunity for a skilled engineer who is looking to expand their experience.
