Job description

CADagency is delighted to be working with a specialist security systems consultancy.

For this role, you will be creating detailed wiring diagrams and overlays from Project Managers sketches, drawings and ideas for high security settings. This role will be office based in Gateshead.

You will need knowledge of Electrical 2D and 3D CAD packages and any SolidWorks experience is preferred.

On a daily basis you will be working to develop detailed Electrical design drawings and specifications for communications systems as well as designing equipment rack wiring & cable routing for Data and Power. You will be working closely with the design team to deliver drawings for Earthing and Surge Protection. You will be working towards independence by shadowing the mechanical design team to help understand and be able to independently consider mechanical and environmental factors along the proposed cable routes or within equipment cabinets and suggest appropriate designs to meet individual situations.

As part of your role you will be working alongside the project team to help review and analyse customer power specifications and design, layout, and detail systems to customer or project specific specifications as well as creating and organising blocks, parts and details for 2D/3D drawing libraries.
