Senior Project Engineer

Home Based - covering the South East

£50,000 – 60,000 + £6k Car Allowance + 10% Pension + 15% bonus (circa £70k + package)


The Company

I’m working with a multibillion turnover business to identify a talented engineering projects professional. They empower their staff to work autonomously and take ownership of their work, which is a refreshing methodology that creates an enjoyable culture to work in.

The business has circa 60 sites in the South East and is currently looking for an engineer, based from home, who will be responsible as the mechanical expert of a team that specifies new equipment and upgrade projects for equipment across the sites in the region.

It’s a very secure business that offers long term development opportunities and would be a good bet in the current climate. Having worked with the business for some time I also know that they are committed to personal development and would support someone towards Chartered status in the role.
