Job Description

Job title: Principal Mechanical Design Engineer

Location: London

Industry: Building Services

Salary: £53,000 - 65,000 plus benefits.

Job Vacancy: JE64239


A Mechanical and Electrical Consultancy practice well established in the North East and North West of England have recently opened an office in London to both deliver existing work load but also to help strengthen an already growing southern client base. As part of this unique opportunity to help spear head the London office our client is actively recruiting for a Principal Mechanical Design Engineer with clear scope into Associate Director within 2-3 years.

The London office is busy with live projects across Industrial, commercial and residential offering the successful Principal Mechanical Engineer the opportunity to act as project lead on varying sized projects with the full engineering support of both northern offices as well as the London office as it continues to grow.


The Principal Mechanical Engineer will join the business as a Lead Engineer delivering projects across various sectors with full Engineering and CAD support from the other offices. Due to the London office being in its infancy this opportunity is unique in that the scope for progression is clear and the opportunity to progress to Associate Director is achievable within 2-3 years. The future Associate Director(s) will manage and continue to grow the London business.


Working experience is more important than qualifications however our client is happy to support CPD if your aspirations are to gain CEng status with CIBSE or IMechE. Our client seeks competent and experienced Lead Mechanical Engineers who are able to deliver projects with autonomy dealing with clients directly on all stages of design. As the business continues to grow the Principal Mechanical Engineer will be required to help mentor and train junior engineers and technicians.

Essential Skills:

  • Minimum of HNC/HND in Mechanical Design Engineering, Building Services or sustainability/renewables.
  • A proven track record of delivering live projects in a client facing remit.
  • Excellent technical knowledge in your discipline.
  • Thorough understanding of UK Building Services and British Standards.
  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills.
  • Ability to motivate and manage a team.
  • Must offer a minimum of 7 years UK Building Services Design experience, ideally in a consultancy environment.

Benefits / Salary:

Our client is willing to pay the ideal Principal Mechanical Design Engineer up to £65,000 plus benefits. This opportunity will also provide you with the scope to progress to Associate Director.
