I recently relocated to the UK and hope to get a job and practice as a Building Services Electrical Design Engineer, how do I increase my chances of getting a building services job, such as writting an exam, certification or joining an organization.

All my previous design experience is to British Standards such as BS7671, BS5266, BS5839 and others. I will appreciate your advice.

Look at membership at some level of CIBSE, consider a bit of cross discipline work on the HVAC/Mechanical side - or a willingness to learn that, try looking at specific lighting qualifications (ILE certificates as an example), look at UK Building regs and the Part L process for certification - think about the energy assesor role, also think about BREEAM assesor roles- really do try and take the "electrical" bit out of your prefered job - Building Services Engineers need to be capable in electrical, mechanical and public health engineering, with perhaps a specialism in one or other

Above all, get your CV out there - a lot of firms are seeing a bit of an upturn in some sectors and are looking to recruit either single discipline or Multi Dis enginers at all levels
