As a leader in this market, we were one of the first consultancies to design air optimised data centres and are at the forefront of this cooling strategy, which has resulted in attaining the first ever BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ rating awarded to a data centre and significantly contributed to others achieving LEED ‘Gold’, or even targeting ‘Platinum’ status.
 
The team are a source of world leading expertise – and offer a pro-active and collaborative approach to skill development, and professional excellence. 

The Role

In this Graduate Mechanical Engineer role, you’ll join a team who specialise in the design of some of the most exciting and high-profile projects in the Data Centre and Critical Systems fields.
 
Under the guidance of our team of experienced engineers, we’ll equip you to undertake detailed mechanical building services engineering design and analysis, define and translate clients’ needs into designs for major data centre and other critical systems projects (ventilation, cooling and air conditioning, heating systems and more) - all with sustainability at the forefront of the design. 
 
You’ll have the opportunity over time to assume greater levels of responsibility and autonomy as your professional skills develop and with accredited professional development programmes from CIBSE and IMechE you’ll be fully supported towards achieving chartership.

The Skills

Accredited with, or on course to achieve a MEng degree level (or equivalent) in Mechanical or Building Services Engineering, you’re passionate about innovative and sustainable mechanical engineering for the built environment. Ideally, you’ll have furthered this interest by undertaking some form of relevant work experience or placement/internship.
 
You have an appreciation for the core elements of mechanical building services engineering and crucially, have a love for creative and intuitive design. Digital engineering is a big focus at Cundall, so ideally, you’ll have an understanding of Parametric Modelling Techniques (Grasshopper or Dynamo), or at least one modern programming language (e.g. Python, C#, VB). An understanding of Engineering Optimisation Techniques, the principles of structured programming and basic knowledge in the application of Machine Learning would also be desirable.
 
You are organised and methodical in your approach to managing your tasks and priorities, you strive to meet deadlines and have a close appreciation of the commercial factors which affect design solutions.
 
Collaborative in nature, you’ll be able to empathise with your clients’ needs and utilise excellent communication skills, both in writing and verbally, with internal and external stakeholders. You’re used to using your initiative to overcome challenges and have a positive, can-do attitude.

What’s in it for you?

We offer a competitive starting salary which grows as you develop, as well as many training and development opportunities to make sure you keep progressing.
 
Aside from this, those who successfully join our graduate scheme also enjoy:

  • A one-off joining bonus of £1,500, payable during your first week of employment
  • A £2,000 bonus on gaining chartered status with a relevant professional body
  • 23 days' holiday per annum (plus statutory holidays) 
  • A flexible benefits package which enables you to select additional benefits to suit your personal circumstances.
