Over recent years I have placed numerous engineers who have joined the company and loved it! They have an extremely low staff turnover and are a close knit bunch with regular social events including Squash Club and weekly 5-a-side football. They also have a very diverse demographic with everyone in the practise, young and old mingling and creating a truly pleasant working environment.
In my opinion, this is the best company to work for in the M&E design sector in the North West. A sector I have worked in for some years now. If they interview you, you will know 2 hours max after the interview if you were successful or not and WHY!
Does this sound like the role for you? Then get in touch now! I am looking to shortlist candidates with my client ASAP. You can contact me, Andrew Kerr on 0161 926 2525 within office hours or 07846319189 at ANY time outside of working hours.
