This is a great role if you’re creative and technical – as an electrical designer you’ll look at what electrical systems the customer needs, then design all the plans and equipment to turn the wish into reality! You’ll learn all the important things you need to take into account, such as equipment, power requirements, cable sizes and building regulations. Using specialist computer software you will create the designs for each project and work with colleagues and clients for approval.
As the project progresses you might need to adapt your designs to overcome certain challenges or restrictions. So good problem-solving skills will come in handy! You’ll also need great communication skills to help explain your designs to those who need to work with them.
This route includes roles such as:
