Applicants must provide a cover note as well as their CV to apply for this position.

Due to the bespoke nature of our work, few projects are the same, our engineers therefore need to have the drive and initiative to be fully engaged in every project and be able to evaluate the best way forward to complete the job.  The role will be challenging and rewarding and also provide an opportunity to work with cutting edge technology.  Additional training can be provided as necessary.
