Are you looking for the chance to expand your knowledge, learn from others and create innovative solutions across a range of disciplines? At Partner Electronics we can provide all that and more.

Within our team, you will be working with clients in a variety of sectors – with projects across areas including consumer electronics, telecoms and defence.

Our teams offer both hardware and software specialisms, so you’ll be supported by experienced design engineers helping you become an industry expert

If you have a specialism we’ll help you develop it, and – if you’re still exploring – this is an exciting place to do just that. 

At Partner Electronics, we don’t just help you develop your engineering skills. We believe that a commercial understanding of your work is essential – and interesting too.

Being involved in client conversations is fundamental in developing the right solutions, that’s why you’ll be part of that work from day one

There’s a lot more to tell you about what we can offer and who we’re looking for, but before we get onto that here’s what Andrew said: “Here at Partner they have you working on projects right from the start. From gaining hands-on experience right from the get-go, I can honestly say I have learned more in two weeks at Partner than I have at other companies.”

What You’ll Be Doing

  • Working with your team to assist in design projects
  • Working with clients to understand their needs
  • Offering suggestions for design solutions and develop ideas where appropriate
  • Creating, testing and assembling prototypes
  • Designing and implementing software and firmware
  • Embedded C programming
  • Software debugging, testing and documentation
  • Product certification

Working closely with our clients we create a range of products from smart sensors for building control applications, through hazardous location electronics to precision sensors for medical instruments. You’ll be part of the team that makes that happen.

Developing electronics and firmware we make our clients products more powerful – which makes them more saleable too. Understanding not only the engineering required to solve our customer problems, but how to make it workable at scale and for the right price is key to the difference we at Partner Electronics make.

Creating quality designs that enable people to transform their ideas into real products.

What We Need From You

  • A strong understanding and practical ability with electronics
  • Good maths skills relevant to electronics and physics
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Strong time and task management focus
  • A good Electronic or Electrical engineering degree (2:1 or above) or equivalent
  • Your own transportation (e.g. car and driving licence) 
  • British/EU Citizenship – no work permits and no known reasons to fail security clearance

We need you to have an inquisitive mindset, positive approach to problem solving and an understanding of the importance of process. 

Why Would You Choose Partner Electronics?

  • Competitive Salary plus sign on bonus
  • 28 days' holiday including Bank Holidays
  • Additional holiday accrued from seven years of service (to a max 35 days)
  • Pension scheme with generous contribution
  • Lifestyle package offering discounted goods and services
  • Bespoke coaching and mentoring program
  • Life insurance

So, what about the company, why would you choose Partner Electronics?

We’re a small company committed to building up each of our members because that’s how we are successful.

We’re a team building futures

There are many team social events and also the opportunity to get involved in interests in the local community, through Partner Electronics or independently, with a range of sports and community organisations represented in the team. 

While Silverstone might be best known for its race track – home of the British Formula 1 Grand Prix – the area is also recognised as a home for engineering and technology with the vibrant Silverstone Technology Cluster forging links across to neighbouring counties Oxfordshire and Cambridgeshire. 

Our office is in a rural location, meaning public transport can be a problem, but it’s a wonderful place to live and work with easy road links to London and Birmingham.

As Shaun said: “everyone has been incredibly friendly and helpful. I have also hugely enjoyed the socials hosted by the firm, and getting to know my new colleagues outside of the office.”

We've signed the Gradcracker feedback pledge.

(This means that we will supply feedback if requested after an interview.)
