Our reputation for excellence is centred on collaborative working and delivering the right engineering solutions to our clients’ problems and you will be expected to help define the problem, identify an appropriate demolition methodology, and justify the right solution.

The relationship with our clients is of critical importance and we expect you to build close ties with the client, founded on trust, nurturing collaborative delivery and a desire to continually improve the engineering service we provide. The role may also include supporting business development and bidding activities.

You’ll will be required to help grow our technical capability through the development of yourself, mentoring or managing others and striving for the continued improvements in reputation for excellence.
