ROLE: Electronics Engineer

LOCATION: Stafford, U.K.

SALARY: Negotiable

DURATION: 6 Months minimum


The successful candidate will be part of a highly motivated, dynamic and rapidly growing team of engineers working on the development of new power electronics applications for power systems.particularly for HVDC converters and the forthcoming "HVDC Grid". HVDC Valves are large and complex structures, with typical dimensions of several metres in each direction and weighing many tens of tonnes. The development of such converters is technically challenging and involves a variety of engineering disciplines, contribution through teamwork and an innovative approach.


Lead on electronic circuit board (PCB) verification

Implement and perform validation tests and design-proving tests

Writing requirement, design, routine test and validation specifications for control and protection electronics.

Specification of ATE equipment and industrialisation activities

Work closely with supply chain and support supplier and manufacturing and site activities.

Integration with other departments (engineering, manufacturing, S&P, SQA) for product development and support tendering and project delivery

Design and specification of electronic components

Analysing system requirements and defining functions to be implemented in Hardware and/or Firmware

Creating and maintaining manufacturing datapacks

Completing engineering activities to cost and to schedule

Participating in and contributing to technical design reviews with engineering experts

Compile DFMEA and design document and know how to apply PFMEA

Review and approve design documentation when required

Work closely with the Firmware implementation and verification team to ensure functional requirements are met.

Strict adherence to safety policies and promote EHS within the team

Travel across the EU and other countries for supply chain integration
