My client based in Central London, and with more than 40 offices worldwide, is seeking a strong mechanical design engineer at senior level to hit the ground running in a team of around 75 multidisciplinary engineers. Although they're a global company, they operate more like a boutique firm giving employees a real opportunity to progress in their career with exposure to all stages of projects.
With projects across many sectors including Hotels, High End Residential, Tall Buildings, Mixed Use, Renovation and Restoration and more, it would be an advantage to have a varied project sector background, but not essential. My client is also branching out and attracting clients in the aviation sector due to the appointment of a new Director who has extensive experience in this field. Typical project values are £100,000,000 plus, UK based and International.
To fit the role you must be a solid mechanical engineer with at least 5/6 years UK building services experience and excellent knowledge of the London market. Although they work on international projects, they have also worked on some of London's most well-known/prestigious buildings. A degree in Building Services, Mechanical Engineering or equivalent is a must. This role will evolve and you will develop at a relatively fast rate, occasionally attending meetings in the initial instance. Further down the line the role will become even more client facing. The ideal candidate will be able to work independently, but with an excellent team around them for support when needed.
This is a genuine opportunity to work in an excellent environment that is relaxed but professional. The atmosphere is very good and upon meeting with several Directors in their very modern offices, it is clear to see why they have a very low staff turnover. Although they are currently working on around 25 live projects all at different phases, employees still find time once or twice a month to get together to socialise in team bonding sessions. There is a very good mix of experience in the London office which is perfect for someone wanting to develop in their career.
