The landscape of manufacturing and engineering is ever changing. As we move through a global pandemic, a shift to Automation over manual work and a demand for goods available on demand the role of Control & Automation continues to grow. Controls and Automation is incredibly valuable within the UK Engineering Market and yet we still see Automation companies that haven’t moved with the times and still expect long hours while offering no flexibility, poor office environments and a lack of trust to their staff. This coupled with a lack of project focus and responsibility and a lack of progression creates a worry for the UKs ability to deliver Automation Projects. Luckily, that isn’t the case everywhere and Peak Technology Solutions certainly break that mould. We’ve been lucky to work with them for numerous years and have seen the impact of: * Flexible working environments, recognising that Engineers have lives outside of work, with family commitments to balance and hobbies that are important to their staff * Investment and support into new projects, new technologies and offices, all backed by the recent investment from the Edwin James Group * Encouraging staff to operate autonomously and trusting them with the responsibility of projects – no micromanagement. Peak Technology Solutions has been growing at double digit rate year on year and has established a first-class portfolio of customers. This has materialised into sustainable business areas through repeat business and/or formal framework agreement spanning over several years. The business has reached a stage where structural changes are being implemented to continue progressing towards strategic company development goals. One of the enablers is to attract a small team of senior automation professionals to join the management team and take an active role working towards the company’s objectives. This role will see you technically leading a number of projects and mentoring Engineers to ensure Peak Technology Solutions continue to deliver the high calibre of service and delivery they are known for. The project solutions are typically based on Rockwell, Siemens, Wonderware, Schneider and IT/OT technologies focused on Data handling and networking. This role requires an understanding of the project lifecycle from concept through to completion with expertise in the following: * Front End consultancy using your Automation Expertise * Control Engineering: Design, configuration of PLCs, SCADA, HMI, Testing and commissioning. * IT/OT Technologies: Industrial Networking, Database Design, MES and Reporting * Project Management and Technical Leadership If you work for a traditional systems integrator and feel underutilised, pigeonholed and want more responsibility or work for a business that does not recognise or understand what you do technically then Peak will offer you the chance for your career to grow and will give you an environment (clear promotion goals, further training, support for Higher Education/Charteredship) to progress Job Type: Permanent. Salary: £50000 - £60000/annum + Benefits.
