  • Mentoring mechanical engineers and trainees
  • Inputting into practice improvements in work methods and delivery
  • Collaborating with other Associate Directors and Directors in identifying and implementing new work practices and innovation.

It is essential that the successful candidate be experienced both technically and in ‘soft skills’ and capable of working collaboratively and efficiently.

You will have experience in mechanical engineering services systems designs across a range of building types but with a particular emphasis on health buildings.

You will also possess excellent communication skills to confidently impact design team meetings as well as build and sustain a strong relationship between your team and the end client.
