You will also have a degree or HND/ HNC (or equivalent) in an engineering related subject or the ability to demonstrate through extended experience, the necessary knowledge to carry out the full range of duties.

In return we can offer:

  • Flexible working, including flexi leave up to 24 days per year and agile working arrangements
  • The opportunity to buy up to 10 days additional leave per year
  • Access to our Employee Assistance Programme – a 24 hour independent, free and confidential advice and support service
