This will include major projects, where you’ll be working with new customers from pre-contract sign-off right through to on-site co-ordination and completion. Your major projects will vary in budget from £100,000 to £multi-million and will see you delivering solutions to some of the worlds most prestigious buildings, both here in the UK as well abroad.
You’ll also work closely with our Production Engineer (also a newly created position) and be involved in the Project Management of a wide variety of in-house engineering projects, ranging from:

To keep all these plates spinning, you’ll produce high quality project work plans that will be delivered internally, but also to your clients. You’ll liaise closely with construction contractors and sub-contractors, make sure that all project documents are up to date and where they should be and, ultimately, be responsible for all day-to day operational aspects of projects.
