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 work effectively within a multi-skilled team when undertaking client 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.

This varied role will ideally suit you if you’re equally happy to work outdoors, in underground tunnels and reservoirs, on water in our powerboat or pontoons, or using 4x4 vehicles, quad bikes and MEWPs, as creating designs in our office. A flexible attitude towards both the nature and environment of your work is essential.
