PLC Automation Engineer required for a manufacturer who pride themselves on the quality of their product. They operate predominantly in the automation and aerospace industry and this is a great opportunity to become a specialist in their field.

The role would suit ANY candidate from a strong PLC background from ANY sector. Applicants must be confident fault finding using PLCs, modifying ladder logic as well as PLC programming. Full training can be provided on company's niche systems but ANY PLC background will transfer.

The role will primarily involve designing automation systems from scratch.

The work will be predominantly office based but on occasions you will be required to attend client site for installation and commissioning of machinery.

They offer full manufacturer training on their PLCs and as they wish to expand their electrical/controls department due to ongoing success, managerial progression will naturally become available.
