Group HES specialises in the design and manufacture of critical and complex fluid power (hydraulic) systems, generally for bespoke machinery in an extremely diverse range of industries, for example, aerospace, motor racing, off-highway equipment and test rigs.

An important part of these systems is the electrical controls and equipment fitted to the hydraulic power unit, and it is for the specification, design and project management of these control panels that the vacancy exists.

We are looking for an experienced Electrical Design Engineer to join our growing team in Gloucester, in fact, Group HES was just named as one of Gloucestershire's 25 fastest growing businesses, despite being founded over 50 years ago!
