Person Specification

You’ll be a highly motivated individual who can work equally well on your own or as part of a team. You’ll be expected to competently and effectively manage a multi-skilled team whilst undertaking projects.

As a company, we’ve developed a “can do” reputation that reflects our innovative and positive approach to works ranging from complex bridge designs to difficult and high risk access inspections. We’ll be looking for you to share this ethos and outlook.

A flexible attitude towards both the nature and environment of your work is essential.
