This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced and client-focused Mechanical Building Services expert to join the team at our office London, to play a leading role in ensuring the successful delivery of innovative mechanical design solutions for some of the most exciting building projects in Northern Ireland, the UK, and around the world.


Working across a variety of sectors such as Education, Healthcare, Residential, Retail and Critical Systems, you will lead a team of specialist engineers and technicians, and work closely with colleagues of various disciplines to manage the delivery of technically-excellent, profitable projects.

You will develop new and nurture existing outstanding client relationships that maximise satisfaction and ensure repeat business, and will use your wealth of expertise and leadership skills to manage, motivate and inspire less experienced engineers.

In your most recent position you have consistently demonstrated your ability to manage multiple large scale projects and less experienced engineers to deliver to, and exceed client expectations, and crucially – you have a passion for creative and intuitive design.


Given the collaborative and client focused nature of this role, excellent communication and project management skills are essential.
