Electrical & Controls Engineer

Electrical & Controls Engineer

Eygelshoven, Limburg Area, Netherlands


Why are your ideas passed over?

Are they particularly bad?

Probably not.

Maybe you just haven’t been given the opportunity to push them. Perhaps you’re part of a large engineering team and it’s difficult to get heard. Or you might be in a smaller business where you just don’t feel able to share your ideas. Even when your great ideas do get the green light, does it take an age for the money to come in to pay for them?

You could put up with it. Or you could join our Engineering team here at A-Gas.


Who we are

We’re the European region of a global gases business with significant private equity backing.

We have a market leading position and are growing globally. Our aim is to be the dominant player in reclamation refrigerants.

Less than 12 months ago we made our first European acquisition in the Netherlands. Our ambition is to treble our current size in Europe over the next five years. Which means huge opportunity for the engineers in our business. People like you.


The opportunity

Our backers want us to build more equipment and upgrade and improve engineering across the business. We’re talking about equipment concerned with the cleaning and separation of waste refrigerant and other speciality gases.

They’ve made a multi-million-euro investment to help us achieve this.

We’ve recruited Patrick, our Process Engineer in Eygelshoven and Jimmy has joined him on a secondment from the UK. But there is still much more work to do onsite. So, we created a new Electrical and Controls Engineer opportunity.

In the first 90 days you’re going to have to get up to speed with some of the electrical systems we use around the Group. Then you’ll be rolling up your sleeves and commission and installing new CAPEX equipment.

In 12-months we expect you to have had significant involvement in the installation of multiple engineering projects in Eygelshoven.

You won’t be alone – we have a geographically dispersed virtual team to support you.

As part of this team you’ll be encouraged to be ingenious, come up with ideas and use advanced engineering solutions to solve problems. You’ll have the freedom to explore ideas and bring your own unique creativity to the table. It’s good for our business and it’s good for you.


Who you are

After studying for your engineering degree, you most likely have gained a couple of years’ solid electrical experience in an operational, chemical or processing environment.

Along the way you’ve picked up a solid understanding of schematics for relay logic or pump control and an appreciation of P&ID drawings. You’re likely to have managed an electrical project. Perhaps you’ve done some PLC programming or at least worked with fault finding.

But you’re fed up of playing a bit part. The scope of your current role is probably too narrow. The idea of being the ‘go-to technical person’ for all things electrical feels like a natural next step.

And as for shift work. The idea of working 9-5 just feels a little more…. modern.


What we’re offering

We offer a competitive starting salary. If you work hard and help us achieve our company goals, then you’ll also share in the profits. Money aside, our positive working culture, emphasis on a healthy work-life balance and access to learning and development help keep our retention levels high. Plus, there’s the opportunity to play a key part in our European ambition.
