Principal Electrical Design Engineer – London

We are currently working on behalf of an award winning and international multi-disciplinary consultancy, who have an excellent opportunity for an experienced Principal Electrical Engineer to join their growing Critical Systems team.

Their dedicated Critical Systems team play a key role in making buildings more energy efficient, sustainable and cost effective to operate. The team works solely in the data centre field, keeping abreast of current best practice while researching breakthrough technologies that shape future trends.

As a leader in this market, they are one of the first consultancies to design air optimised data centres and are at the forefront of this cooling strategy, which has resulted in attaining the first ever BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ rating awarded to a data centre and significantly contributed to others achieving LEED ‘Good’, or even targeting ‘Platinum’ status.

The team are a source of world leading expertise – and offer a pro-active and collaborative approach to skill development, and professional excellence.


This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced and talented Electrical Engineer to join their team in London to work on the design of some of the most exciting critical systems/data centre projects in Europe.

As part of their established team of expert engineers, and working closely with colleagues of various disciplines, you will prepare both scheme and detailed engineering designs for the power systems for major data centre and other critical systems projects.

The role will suit someone who is already a leader in medium voltage and high current low voltage distribution systems. The role will involve working mostly on data centre projects ranging from plant upgrades through to 100MW+ hyperscale projects. If you are not already a Chartered engineer then you will be supported towards Chartership.


Educated to degree level in Electrical Engineering or a Chartered Electrical Engineer (CEng equivalent), you have gained substantial experience in an Electrical Engineering role within the electrical design field, preferably in a data centre/critical systems context (electrical distribution and power generation systems etc.).

You have proven experience of detailed co-ordination with other design disciplines and are well-versed in electrical theory and the use of relevant design software.  You will also be required to manage and support other team resources including less senior engineers and CAD technicians.

You have proven ability in producing schematic diagrams, fault and discrimination studies, preparing specifications and project reports, carrying out site inspections and surveys, and detail design development, and crucially – you have a passion for accurate design of electrical systems.
