Owners of Electrical Power Systems face the challenge of reducing their carbon emissions to meet the UK government’s goal of net-zero emissions by 2050.

Frazer-Nash support numerous clients facing this challenge while simultaneously having to maintain safe, secure, sustainable and affordable operations.

These clients cover the owners and operators of small industrial private wire networks through to major urban distribution systems, transmission networks and power generation.

Our engineers join us to make a positive impact on the world and to learn from some of the best minds in the industry.

Our people stay with us because they value our highly supportive team environment and the career opportunities provided by our sustained growth.

• Mentoring and development of electrical engineers.

The role will involve hybrid working in our offices, at home, and at clients’ sites depending on the needs of projects.
