An established manufacturer of bespoke machinery and heavy vehicles has an exciting opportunity available for you to join them as a trainee electrical/hydraulic design engineer.  Working under the supervision of the senior electrical engineer you will be responsible for the design and production of electrical control systems, lighting circuits, hydraulic circuits and pneumatic circuits using 2D AutoCAD as well as the writing of PLC programmes and Fault Finding.
