The role

We are currently recruiting for a Network Innovation Engineer. You will be joining a team of talented technology enthusiasts who design and support systems, shaping the future of low carbon power networks.

Reporting to the Network Innovation Manager, you will support with the delivery of high-profile innovation projects (such as the demonstration of novel energy storage technologies, electric vehicle control systems and active network management of low carbon technologies).

Project management responsibilities include the day-to-day running of the projects, monitoring delivery progress, supervision of budgets, managing key project risks and the management of key delivery partners and suppliers.

Technical responsibilities will include equipment specification and procurement, product development, witness testing, data analysis and application support.
