Graduate Electronics Engineer

Electrical/Electronic/Computer Science.

Save to shortlist Saved to shortlist Apply now

We’re looking for Electronics graduates who want to work on real product developments across a range of industries and technologies. You’ll need to be willing to face a challenge and work with a range of different technologies across a variety of tasks. In return we can offer the chance to tackle some of the hardest engineering problems around.

This is a Graduate role in the Electronic Design group within our Industrial, Consumer and Energy division, to start in 2022.

Joining Cambridge Consultants

"There's such a breadth of knowledge from so many different people; you can gain knowledge in different skillsets you didn't even know existed."

Role description

Cambridge Consultants works on a wide range of product and system developments for a broad range of clients. We’ll give you the time and support needed to learn how to apply your skills to client projects and create a solid reputation for yourself as a reliable, safe pair of hands for day-to-day electronic design across a mix of project teams.

Projects we are currently working on that you could be involved in:

  • High volume product development of Smart Metering solution for UK energy suppliers
  • Electronics development for optical communications system for an agricultural application
  • High performance custom electronics development for security application
  • Internal project investment in high power electronics

Every project we do is different – we are always innovating rather than iterating, so each new project will be a brand-new challenge. You could be working on an industrial robot on one project, then a smart wearable on the next.

What we can offer

We will provide you with the opportunity to get hands-on with all aspects of electronics circuit board development, such as:

  • Simulating and producing detailed analogue, digital and mixed signal circuit designs
  • Developing schematics, PCB layouts and BOMs for PCB designs
  • Hands-on testing and debugging in the lab
  • Documenting the design

You may also find opportunities to gain experience in software development (C, C++, Python etc) and FPGA development.

This role provides a valuable opportunity to work alongside and learn from more experienced colleagues in both your own and related fields. You will receive on-going support and training to ensure your career and skills develop in the direction you choose.

What you can bring

  • Strong academic background with an electronics related degree
  • Solid understanding of fundamental electronic theory and principles
  • Great communications skills
  • Practical experience through university, work or home projects in at least one of the following areas, and enthusiasm for learning about the others:
  • Analogue electronics (general, interfaces, RF, power)
  • Digital electronics (Verilog, VHDL, processors, memory, DSP)
  • PCB design

We welcome applications from recent graduates with industrial experience, final year students and graduates with relevant academic course or research experience. We are as interested in your skills and ability to learn quickly as we are in your experience.
