French-speaking  Electrical AutoCAD 2D Designer,
are you ready to take on the responsibilities of a Team Lead to gain valuable experience on your resume?

If you have a minimum of 5 years of experience in the heavy industrial, power plant or nuclear designs of electrical cable containment networks for manufacture and installation, we would like to hear from you.

Role description

As an Electrical CAD Design Team Leader, you will be in charge of the management of a team composed of 3-5 CAD designers/technicians responsible for main electrical cable containment network drawings for installation and manufacturing, as well the Bill of Quantities (trays and supports components incl. accessories and hardware).

  • Making sure that the Design Sequences and Design Verification Processes established in the CT section are respected
  • Reporting to the Lead Engineer: progress, difficulties encountered, Technical Queries etc.

The CAD tools used: AVEVA E3D (Draw – Production of the 2D Drawings), PDMS (Perform small design modifications in the 3D model), AutoCAD 2D (Production of specific 2D Drawings) and Navisworks (Navigate around the 3D model).

Essential skills

You have solid experience as a CAD designer in the Electrical Installation field, ideally in the nuclear energy sector and you are proficient in PDMS 3D and Draft (ideally also AVEVA E3D Draw).

The key skills are the ability to assess the designs for their feasibility and completeness to complete the final part of the design, and the ability to manage the team.
