Principal traction power engineer

Job Profile

We are looking for an enthusiastic, confident and experienced Principal traction power engineer to lead and support our Croydon based
team on multi-disciplinary projects.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate, and take positive steps to create an inclusive culture.

Job Description

Our current Traction power team leader is moving abroad with Mott MacDonald
so we are now looking for a replacement.

Our rail team are recruiting an enthusiastic, imaginative and committed person to join our growing, world-class rail business as a Principal traction power engineer. In return we offer you the opportunity to develop your career and shape exciting projects.

The role is varied and will be based in Croydon to lead the local traction power team and support a portfolio of UK and international projects.

This demanding and rewarding role will encompass:

Technical leadership - You will have responsibility for the delivery of technical work by the Croydon Traction Power team across a range of local and international projects. You will be responsible for providing technical input, on all areas of DC and AC traction power systems including issues associated with earthing and bonding and AC/DC interfaces, on major projects which Mott MacDonald is undertaking.

Team management - Leading by example, you will have line management responsibility for a dynamic team of 10 - 15 traction power engineers, including: technical development of staff, mentorship, workload management and recruitment.

Business acumen - An ambitious and driven individual, you will combine your robust technical expertise with your business acumen to grow and develop the team. Business development will be a key part of your role: you will coordinate and/or support the preparation of high-quality, competitive bids, develop strong relationships with key clients, and proactively promote our services through internal and external networking opportunities.

The role is based in Croydon, but as we work for most of the major UK infrastructure owners this will require some travel as project demand dictates.
