Due to continued growth and an increase in workload my client based in the West End are currently looking for a Senior MEP CAD/Revit Technician to strengthen their MEP Design engineering and BIM production capability.
My client was founded in the 70's and has grown from strength to strength opening 6 offices across the UK. The London office is expanding and with 30 multidiscipline engineers already in this office they are looking to increase this number by 20%. They have worked on projects from small refurbishments through to new build developments of commercial office space, hotels, retail, residential, historic, industrial, educational and healthcare. They also work for various global property management companies including Savills, Jones Lang LaSalle and Colliers international giving a good idea of my clients reputatuion in the market. Their varied sector/client reach does not stop there as they also deliver on listed buildings including the Globe Theatre, plus end users such as Disney
This is a very important vacancy for my client as it means supporting the design engineers and leading the CAD team. You will be responsible for bringing your team up to speed with MEP REVIT as well as be the go to. You will be supporting the implementation of BIM practices and procedures as well as delivering work. This role also means you will be expected to mentor junior members of the team with your own technical expertise regarding MEP Revit.
My client can offer a very progressive career path and the position will indeed evolve into an even more senior position eventually running the whole division. It is important you have experience with managing a team and the ability to communicate well as you will be the layer between the design engineers and your own team. Although my client has enjoyed taking on repeat business with clients already mentioned, they also attract many companies that require a quick turn around on particular projects due to their reliability and reputation for delivering on time. Therefore, organisation, project management and planning skills, including the ability to juggle multiple task would certainly be an advantage. My client always exceeds client expectations hence the reason why their project pipeline of repeat business is so long. You will be expected to have excellent time and cost management skills in order to plan and achieve delivery to the desired quality.
Having visited the office which has excellent transport links with the Piccadilly line and Central Line nearby, as well as Euston station only a 15 min walk away, it is easy to understand why the majority of the employees have been there for more than 10 years. The environment is very friendly and supportive which is the main reason why the CAD manager, whom I spent a morning with, has been with the company for 30 years.
You must be educated to HNC level or equivalent with demonstrable experience as a BIM coordinator and hold a professional qualification. It is vital that you have recent experience working in Building Services with MEP Revit experience in order for you to hit the ground running and lead your team.
My client is more interested in your ability to do this than having many years of experience using CAD so it is essential that you know MEP Revit inside and out. A combination of the two would be ideal.
For the right person my client offers excellent packages including paid travel to and from home to the office, contributory pension, private healthcare, 22 days annual leave rising to 26 days (1 extra day per year up to maximum of 26 days), life insurance, and membership of Perkbox.
