Job Details

Role: Mechanical Engineer / Senior Mechanical Engineer / Principal Mechanical Engineer (Building Services Design)

Experience: Minimum 5 years mechanical design experience and above. Proficient in 2D AutoCAD

Salary: TBA

Davies Partnership are a multi award winning Building Services (M&E) Design Consultancy with ambitious growth plans who are looking to offer highly motivated team players an exciting opportunity to join our ranks.

We welcome initiative and alternative solutions to problem solving and our minds are always open to change. We promote an open culture throughout the business, no separation of Directors from engineers, we have an ‘all in this together’ mentality. We recruit as much on attitude as much as technical ability which ensures an excellent team ethic. We look after and care about each other, we see the company as an extension to your family.

With offices in Chester, Liverpool & Conwy we employ a strong team of dedicated people many of whom have been with the business for over 10 years.

What makes us different as an employer?

We have an active programme of events which include mountain walks (we are at the door to Snowdonia), days at the races (Chester and Bangor-on-dee), escape rooms, nights out and many others. Our culture and team ethic are everything to us and by careful recruitment of like-minded people we find we all get on at a social level too.

We offer free monthly mindfulness sessions with a qualified professional if you fancy talking to someone about any aspect of your life. Many of our team have used this facility and the feedback has been excellent.

We provide pool cars for business travel which means your pride and joy doesn’t have to rack up the miles on our behalf. Other benefits including company pension, 25 days annual leave plus a free day off on your birthday. Further benefits are currently being planned under our Work Life Balance programme.

What about salary? Everything we do is focussed on process and efficiency as this inevitably leads to improved profitability. This means we can offer class leading salary packages. More importantly, these are reviewed under our regular appraisal process with two-way feedback ensuring that performance is rewarded. It is up to you how quickly you want to progress through the ranks, and we encourage ambition and a desire to succeed. You will never be constrained by corporate structure at Davies Partnership.

What makes us different as a design consultancy?

Davies Partnership has strategically positioned its sector portfolio to ensure resilience during economic down-turn, with access to high volumes of UK government, local authority and social housing sector projects. With the ability to ramp these sectors up at will, ensures that your position remains secure at Davies Partnership even during periods of recession.

We identified several years ago that the Building Services Sector has a poor reputation in terms of quality control with design errors creating issues during the installation phase. We decided to fix this. Our quality control system is class leading and we believe the most stringent in the UK. So, what does this mean for you? It means you receive support from our dedicated quality team at all stages of the design. The quality team works with you to ensure you deliver a design free from errors. This is a collaborative effort and done in the right way. Just ask our engineers, they really appreciate it. This means no more difficult phone calls with contractors during the installation phase or sleepless nights.

It also means repeat business, happy clients and increased profitability which is good for us all. We are firm believers in that if the company does well, the team should benefit.

We track our quality figures weekly on our cloud-based management system, along with many other vital metrics and this allows us to keep under constant review. You will improve under this system, and you will enjoy a hassle free working life. Take a look on our website at the type of projects we do, diverse, interesting and challenging.

We promote an open culture, no such thing as a stupid question. Worried about whether you will make the grade, maybe this is your first move? No need to worry, our quality team will work closely with you over the first few months and together we will identify any weaknesses and we will help you to strengthen these by involving you with projects that expand your knowledge and with the security of the quality team being right by your side all the way through. No one Engineer knows it all and it is our collective knowledge combined with our team ethic which is the reason for our success including industry awards received in 2021 and more anticipated in 2022.

We have a real dislike for overly complicated ISO 9001 quality systems, our Directors having worked for large multi-national M&E consultants in the past. We keep it simple, and we only do quality control if it benefits the project or the business. You will not even realise you are working under an ISO9001 quality system as we have integrated every step of ISO9001 into your normal design processes. This has been externally endorsed by our accreditation body as Outstanding with no corrections identified during our 2021 audit.


Working within the built environment we have job opportunities in building services with a large network of employers, both temporary and permanent for all levels of building services recruitment; design engineers, project engineers, managers, CAD technicians and associated technical staff.
