PLEASE NOTE THIS POSITION IS TO START IN SEPTEMBER 2023
Our Building Services teams at Cundall have a mission: they want to play a key role in making buildings more energy efficient, cost effective to run and, ultimately, more sustainable. To do this, we’re looking for graduates who have a desire and enthusiasm to make a difference: in our homes, our offices, our projects, our industry and our community.
Working across a variety of industry sectors, our Building Services engineers are a source of world leading expertise; producing innovative and award-winning sustainable engineering solutions throughout the lifecycle of any building project.
With offices in the UK, Europe, Middle East, Asia and Australia, we offer a pro-active and collaborative approach to skill development, professional excellence and knowledge sharing.
Our Building Services teams have accomplished amazing projects like an innovative office for Google and an energy efficient data centre for Facebook. As a graduate in the team, you could play a key part in our next big project.
In this Graduate Mechanical Engineer role, you’ll join a team who specialise in the design of some of the most exciting construction projects in the UK and worldwide.
Working closely with colleagues across our multi-disciplinary practice, you’ll provide specialist consultancy input on projects across a wide range of sectors including education, healthcare, workplace, retail and critical systems (data centres).
Under the guidance of our team of experienced engineers, we’ll equip you to undertake detailed mechanical building services engineering design and analysis, define and translate clients’ needs into designs for buildings, facilities and services (ventilation, cooling and air conditioning, heating systems and more) - all with sustainability at the forefront of the design.
You’ll have the opportunity over time to assume greater levels of responsibility and autonomy as your professional skills develop and with accredited professional development programmes from CIBSE and IMechE you’ll be fully supported towards achieving chartership.
Accredited with, or on course to achieve a MEng degree level (or equivalent) in Mechanical or Building Services Engineering, you’re passionate about innovative and sustainable mechanical engineering for the built environment. Ideally, you’ll have furthered this interest by undertaking some form of relevant work experience or placement/internship.
You have an appreciation for the core elements of mechanical building services engineering and crucially, have a love for creative and intuitive design. Digital engineering is a big focus at Cundall, so ideally, you’ll have an understanding of Parametric Modelling Techniques (Grasshopper or Dynamo), or at least one modern programming language (e.g. Python, C#, VB). An understanding of Engineering Optimisation Techniques, the principles of structured programming and basic knowledge in the application of Machine Learning would also be desirable.
You are organised and methodical in your approach to managing your tasks and priorities, you strive to meet deadlines and have a close appreciation of the commercial factors which affect design solutions.
Collaborative in nature, you’ll be able to empathise with your clients’ needs and utilise excellent communication skills, both in writing and verbally, with internal and external stakeholders. You’re used to using your initiative to overcome challenges and have a positive, can-do attitude.
What’s in it for you?
We offer a competitive starting salary which grows as you develop, as well as many training and development opportunities to make sure you keep progressing.
Aside from this, those who successfully join our graduate scheme also enjoy:
- A one-off joining bonus of £1,500, payable during your first week of employment
- A £2,000 bonus on gaining chartered status with a relevant professional body
- 23 days' holiday per annum (plus statutory holidays)
- A flexible benefits package which enables you to select additional benefits to suit your personal circumstances.
