We are currently recruiting for a M&E Design Engineer (Associate level) on behalf of a leading specialist in energy efficient and sustainable farming techniques. This role is ideal for a candidate who is currently at Senior Engineer level, or already at Associate level and looking for a new challenge in their career.
Due to rapid expansion the company are looking to build a further 3 "vertical farms" over the next 3 years and require a M&E Design Engineer to carry out and manage the design of all Mechanical and Electrical aspects of these projects.
Total value for the projects will be approximately GBP75 million and will have a footprint of at least 5000m2 for each scheme. The farming process is highly automated so the ideal candidate will have experience in the design of M&E installations for similar projects such as manufacturing facilities, distribution centres or automated warehouses.
It is intended that further sites will be acquired whilst these farms are being built and the projects will continue from there. The candidate will be reporting directly into the Project Director and leading all elements of the design, working closely with the Technical Director to develop concept ideas into reality. These ideas are all unique and not found in any design manual allowing freedom for creativity.
