An award-winning Technology Development Consultancy have an exciting new graduate Electronics Engineer position with their hi-tech development team based just outside Cambridge. The team are looking for an outstanding recent Electronics Engineering graduate with a 1st or 2.1 MEng (or perhaps a PhD) from a Russell Group university, along with excellent A-Levels. The Electronics graduate will also need a broad range of hands-on electronics design skills covering digital design, analog electronics and ideally some embedded software, together with an understanding of underlying physics and maths of a system.

This isn't your standard Electronics Graduate Engineer role - you will have a Senior Engineer to guide and mentor you and you will be expected to make a solid contribution to projects in areas such as robotics, automated manufacturing systems, high-technology consumer products, scientific instrumentation and renewable energy. This is an exceptional career platform - the Electronics Engineering graduate will gain valuable industry experience and training; working on a variety of challenging, cutting edge projects across a wide variety of technology platforms. The investment from the company and your desire to learn will ensure this role is a catalyst to an incredibly successful career!

To be considered for the role of Graduate Electronics Engineer you would need the following:


Degree: 2.1 or 1st class MEng in Electronics Engineering (or perhaps Computer Science)
Good A-Levels (or equivalent) - typically A/B grades minimum

Essential skills:

Excellent knowledge of Electronics - including digital design (FPGAs, discrete logic), Analogue Design (low power amplifiers, signal conditioning, PSUs)
Excellent maths and physics with the ability to understand and analyse the fundamentals of often highly complex systems.
Excellent written and verbal English with the ability to communicate conclusions in a clear and concise manner
Ideally, skills in embedded Software (C/C++/C# and perhaps Python, R etc)
Ideally, exposure to PCB layouts and design tools such as Verilog VHDL

Our view: This is a superb opportunity for a recent Electronics Graduate to apply their design skills in a commercial organisation. This is a job where you will get the satisfaction of seeing your efforts turned into actual physical products that will seem almost like science-fiction today but will be in everyday use in the near future. Make no mistake -this may be called 'design consultancy' but it is hands-on, circuit-level electronics design and boredom will never be an issue! All this in a highly stimulating and challenging environment where no two days are the same, where innovation is recognised and rewarded with excellent pay and benefits plus superb long-term career potential. Graduate positions really don't come any better!

Vacancy title: Graduate Electronics Engineer

Salary: circa £25-32K plus excellent benefits and ongoing training and personal career development

Job Location: South Cambridgeshire (commutable from Cambridge, Royston, Newmarket, Harlow, Stevenage etc)

    Information technology (IT) is the application of computers to store, study, retrieve, transmit, and manipulate data, or information, often in the context of a business or other enterprise. IT is considered a subset of information and communications technology (ICT). In 2012, Zuppo proposed an ICT hierarchy where each hierarchy level "contain[s] some degree of commonality in that they are related to technologies that facilitate the transfer of information and various types of electronically mediated communications". The term is commonly used as a synonym for computers and computer networks, but it also encompasses other information distribution technologies such as television and telephones. Several industries are associated with information technology, including computer hardware, software, electronics, semiconductors, internet, telecom equipment, and e-commerce. Humans have been storing, retrieving, manipulating, and communicating information since the Sumerians in Mesopotamia developed writing in about 3000 BC, but the term information technology in its modern sense first appeared in a 1958 article published in the Harvard Business Review; authors Harold J. Leavitt and Thomas L. Whisler commented that "the new technology does not yet have a single established name. We shall call it information technology (IT)." Their definition consists of three categories: techniques for processing, the application of statistical and mathematical methods to decision-making, and the simulation of higher-order thinking through computer programs.

    Cambridgeshire (abbreviated Cambs.) is a county in the East of England, bordering Lincolnshire to the north, Norfolk to the north-east, Suffolk to the east, Essex and Hertfordshire to the south, and Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire to the west. The city of Cambridge is the county town. Modern Cambridgeshire was formed in 1974 as an amalgamation of the counties of Cambridgeshire and Isle of Ely and Huntingdon and Peterborough, the former covering the historic county of Cambridgeshire (including the Isle of Ely) and the latter covering the historic county of Huntingdonshire and the Soke of Peterborough, historically part of Northamptonshire. It contains most of the region known as Silicon Fen. The county is now divided between Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough City Council, which, since 1998, forms a separate unitary authority. In the county there are five district councils, Cambridge City Council, East Cambridgeshire District Council, Fenland District Council, Huntingdonshire District Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council.
