Job Details

We welcome applications and employ aspiring and experienced engineers coming from a range of science and engineering backgrounds. Apart from the conventional "equal opportunities employer" or "complying with the Equality Act" statements, we can proudly and wholeheartedly say that our commitment is not only to eliminate and avoid discrimination, but to create an environment where our differences can be celebrated and valued.

We currently have excellent opportunities across our five offices in the UK for skilled and enthusiastic MEP, mechanical and electrical building services engineers, with at least 3 years’ experience in building services design, who are looking to develop their experience, knowledge and career with one of the UK’s leading, award-winning MEP engineering practices; a practice committed to leading the industry in tackling the challenges posed by the climate and biodiversity crises.

Our aim is to deliver innovative, sustainable solutions that really work for our clients and are beautifully integrated with the architecture and structure.

With at least 3 years’ experience in MEP consultancy and holding a relevant degree qualification, you will have either a broad understanding of MEP engineering or a detailed aspect of it, working towards or ready to apply for chartered status. You will also have experience working with digital design tools like AutoCAD and Revit. In addition, good communication skills, along with an open attitude towards working collaboratively with others is essential. 

At Max Fordham we are passionate about providing beautifully engineered, low energy buildings, and pride ourselves on providing an open and supportive environment for our employees and partners.
