We are passionate about your development and will actively encourage you to develop your technical skills and experience through ongoing professional development.

You will primarily be office-based but will have flexibility to work from home by agreement in coordination with other members of the team.
Skills and Experience required for the role:

  • Degree in Acoustical Engineering or related subject.

  • Given the collaborative and client focussed nature of this role, excellent communication skills and experience of using your initiative to overcome challenges are essential.

What’s in it for you?

We offer a competitive starting salary which grows as you develop, as well as many training and development opportunities to make sure you keep progressing.
