Our client is a specialist multi-discipline building services consultancy, which is locally owned and has grown to 30 engineers since its inception 10 years ago.  The business believes in face-to-face meetings, especially when starting a new project, to ensure you fully understand your client’s needs and expectations on each project. They are committed to maintaining this level of collaboration throughout the entire design process, from start to finish.

So far into 2023, the year is shaping up well, having recently moved into a new and larger office space to facilitate future growth. The company has a culture of working hard and rewarding the staff for it, with long weekends for every bank holiday and internal lockout emails after 6 pm to ensure people are not working after hours to avoid burnout.  The culture is made up of a relatively young team with good banter in the office, and you celebrate birthdays off and hold a team bonding event once a month during working hours and provide a flexible hybrid approach of working from home for two days per week.
