Security Systems Design Engineer



SGW provides a wide portfolio of professional consulting services relating to the safety & security of the built environment. Our projects are diverse and spread across a number of vertical market sectors internationally.

Due to continued expansion, SGW now wishes to appoint a Surveyor / Design Engineer (Security) based at our Nottinghamshire UK office. The role will necessitate travel to customer sites in the UK and internationally to conduct site security surveys and participate in design team coordination meetings and stakeholder workshops.

The position will focus on the conceptual and detailed design of complex and often sophisticated security, building management and fire systems, including access control, CCTV, intruder detection, physical security measures, fire alarms, life safety systems, and integrated building management systems.

The desired candidate should have a technical degree (Preferably electrical / building services engineering) or a relevant technology related BTEC diploma qualification. Registration with the engineering council at EngTech or IEng grade would be advantageous but relevant experience may also be taken into consideration. The ASIS Physical Security Professional (PSP) certification is also deemed a suitable qualification for this post. Experience in and knowledge of CCTV, Electronic & Physical Security Systems design and project management is preferred.

Candidates should have reasonable competence in 2D AutoCAD and Visio drawing design software and should be eager and willing to learn new technologies and products. Primary responsibilities will be the preparation of feasibility, outline and detailed design reports and documentation relating to security, fire, and building management related projects.

You will prepare tender packages including performance or detailed design based specification, bills of quantities, site and building plans showing point by point requirements of the project, system schematics, and visualizations.

You will be expected to further develop a reasonable competence in AutoCAD Building Design Suite including 3D Max & Revit and Adobe Creative Suite software and should be eager and willing to learn new software, technologies, and products. You will also be expected to participate in continued professional development (CPD) activities.

You will be expected to build relationships with manufacturers and hold regular meetings with manufacturers and integrators to assist you to prepare a final scheme design or tender package. Strong technical written, organizational, communication and presentation skills are very important and shortlisted candidates will be expected to present previous examples of drawings, design data, presentations or specifications prepared in a similar current or previous role.

An understanding and experience of current British & International Standards in both electronic & physical security would be a significant advantage.
