Job Description

I am currently working on behalf of a well-known building services consultancy that specialises in all aspects of building services, to recruit an Associate Mechanical Engineer. The company in question has developed an incredibly strong presence in the market and is known for its excellence and consistent delivery. Due to sheer work load, the client is now looking to offer this exceptional opportunity to a well-rounded engineer.

This multi-disciplinary company has been delivering projects across the globe successfully for many years. This has cemented their reputation as one of the best and most reliable consultancies in the market.

With more than 200 employees including engineers, designers, architects, programmers, analysts and researchers that represent the core staff, they are able to take on a variety of technically challenging projects and explore solutions from a multi-layered perspective.

As an Associate Mechanical Engineer you will not only oversee, but you will be hands on too. You will be responsible for building relationships with clients, developing business opportunities, leading projects and managing a team of MEP Engineers. You will be client facing, technically well rounded, a good motivator and offer the benefit of your experience to encourage and mentor less experienced engineers.

You will be heavily involved with one of the biggest and most iconic projects in the UK. My client is also working alongside a signature architect on a project in the Middle East. With a project order book running well into 2020 covering various sectors you certainly won't be pigeon holed into one sector.

You should have excellent technical knowledge in your primary discipline and a thorough understanding of Building Services Engineering and interdisciplinary design through all stages of the design process.

The successful candidate will be rewarded not only by taking satisfaction in achieving great results, but also financially plus various incentives and benefits, not to mention a clear career path.
