The current MEP team consists of 12 engineer which they are looking to grow over the coming months. The office sits within a multi-disciplinary environment and the team has regular contact across the board with structural, fire and civils & Transportation divisions.  Their present project portfolio allows for good exposure to some high profile projects across many sectors including a large hospital project, a residential scheme which consist of over 300 apartments and also a school which has close ties with the Bentley motors headquarters.

Furthermore, each regional office in the business is targeted to achieve 25% of its work through international projects which allows exposure to a wide range of projects. The role will see you heading up the mechanical team which will require managing projects, attending client meetings and overseeing junior and graduate engineers in the team. This position will also allow you to work alongside the mechanical associate within the team and give you great exposure and progression.

The business is looking at a personality fit, as much as existing titles and levels of experience and is willing to take the chance on someone who could demonstrate real passion and ambition.
