We are a UK based systems engineering company, specialising in mission-critical control and communication systems within transportation environments and we’re currently recruiting for an Project Engineer – OT Networks.

This is a great opportunity to join a forward-thinking company and to make the role your own.

At Firstco, we consult, design, build and support a range of control & communication systems and networks within the  transport and other critical national infrastructure industries.

Our project engineers consult, design, deliver and support networks in sectors across our business, primarily (but not limited to) railway and aviation. Specific roles and responsibilities are commensurate with experience and qualifications.

Due to the nature of our projects, some works will be required to be undertaken overnight shifts or weekends to meet operational constraints. This will be occasional and planned activity, with the role being predominantly weekday-based.

This role includes an element of on-call, remote assistance as part of a second-line team to support several of our networks.
