PLC Software Engineer - Siemens S7 PLCS - Staffordshire - Permanent - GBP25-45k

Samuel Frank Associates require an experienced PLC Software Engineer to join a very well established System Integrator in South-East Staffordshire. Key requirements for the role include PLC software writing experience, ideally with Siemens S7 PLCs (other vendor experience will be considered) and good experience of writing functional design specifications and ideally some prior involvement in quoting jobs and assisting sales engineers.

The successful PLC Software Engineer is likely to have experience of either the brewing, dairy, pharmaceutical or food sectors and be prepared for UK and non-UK based site work. The client provides expertise in the process design and automation system integration for various sectors across the UK and further afield. The Controls Manager estimates an approximate split of 65%/35% between the office and customer site. He estimates most commissioning phases will be 1-2 weeks and larger less frequent jobs could be 4-5 weeks.

A Degree qualification is preferred but is not essential as is any experience with HMI or SCADA configuration. Experience of working for another System Integrator or working to deadlines will give you an understanding of the nature of this type of role. The solution needs to be delivered on time and on budget to a very high quality standard.

This is a great opportunity for a high-calibre engineer looking to join a growing and stable business with the opportunity to work in different sectors, using different systems. The client has a very good reputation and their staff retention rate is very high.

The client requests that all applicants are eligible to work in the UK. The client is keen to speak with self-motivated, experienced PLC Control System Engineers, however if you're less experienced and maybe recently qualified in a relevant discipline then please submit your CV as there is also an opportunity for an entry level engineer (hence the salary range on offer).

The client's premises are commutable from places across the West Midlands such as Birmingham, Walsall, Sutton Coldfield, Burton-upon-Trent, Stafford, Wolverhampton and Dudley
