Mech-V is an Irish-owned and Irish-based Inspection and Technical Consultancy for the Wind Energy Sector. We are industry experienced engineers who provide continued inspection and technical services to the sector across the island for both on and offshore assets. We perform field inspections of wind assets including walk downs, UAV blade inspections, end of warranty inspections, life extensions and much more.
Apart from our wind turbine work, Mech-V has long-term experience in the application of RDS-PP coding for new and existing wind energy projects, both On-shore and Off-shore. We provide consultancy services to clients undergoing asset data management projects and assist them in the implementation of RDS-PP for their renewable assets.
Being efficient and straight-thinking is something we take pride in here. We strive to make our systems as efficient as possible. This means we are open to new ideas while remaining confident in our existing systems. In summary: the best idea wins the day; if you have a good idea, it will be heard; we don't do egos!

Communication and education is an important sub-role of this position. You will be expected to represent Mech-V Limited when you communicate with an international team of highly experienced engineers. As many of our clients are are unfamiliar with RDS-PP, you will need to educate them on its capabilities and applications.
Describing our ideal candidate, we'd say, you are innately technically minded and have the ability to quickly absorb new information. You are the type of person that is motivated and energised by dissecting and understanding how things work.
Furthermore, you are data-driven and analytically minded and are extremely comfortable working with, extracting, manipulating and analysing large volumes of information.
Not only that, but you are a ninja-level expert when working with spreadsheets, and you have the skills to exploit the full data analytics capabilities of software packages such as Excel.
You would need to be very comfortable working with all types of technical documentation, whether that be technical drawings, electrical or mechanical drawings, flow processes or technical text.
It would be essential that you are able to spend a large amount of time working autonomously. You have an eye for detail and have the ability to recognise anomalies in the data that you are working with.
Ideally, you will have real-world experience in an engineering role, preferably in the energy sector. Also essential to this role is existing working knowledge of RDS-PP/PS standards, whether that is from working directly with the coding or working within and RDS-PP/PS environment.
If this sounds like you, then we would love to hear from you.
The role will be for 40 hours a week, working on a moderately flexible schedule. We are a small company, so we can be responsive to the needs of our staff as required.
We are based in Cork, Ireland, but you can work from anywhere but preferably in the EU.
An important note: This will primarily be a remote working position. It is essential that you have a suitable location to carry out deep desk work.
The salary for this role will be approximately 80k per annum.
You must have a working knowledge of RDS-PP/PS standards, whether that is from working directly with the coding or working within and RDS-PP/PS environment.
We want to make sure you have every opportunity to assess us. Yes, we want you to be the right person for the role, but we also want to make sure you are happy that this is the right role and company for you.
With this in mind we would encourage you to ask as many questions as you wish throughout the recruitment process. This is a two-way process, after all, and we'd expect you to be assessing us too. So please, if you have any questions at all, do not hesitate to get in touch. We would be only too happy to help.
If you do decide that this role would be a good fit for you, great! The recruitment process would be as follows. Each step is there to reduce the amount of applicants. We will inform everyone who has successfully processed the application of their status each step of the way.
First, email over your CV and cover letter to email@example.com with the subject line: “Application for RDS Engineer position ”.
We are conscious that your time may be limited, so we will be inviting shortlisted candidates through to the first round, to an online interview.
We want to give you the opportunity to meet us in person to help you decide if we are the right company for you. We would also like to ask you a few more questions in person if that works for you. It's part of the recruitment process, but more so as an informal chat and an opportunity for you to ask us anything you'd like.
We will need two references, that we can phone, who know you in a professional capacity.
