What do we do?
Due to the business's continued growth, we currently have an exciting opportunity for a Mechanical Engineer Graduate to join our business on a permanent, full-time basis, based on one of our projects within Central London. Initially there may be some travel to our Head Office in Watford (this travel would also be subsidised) which would allow the Graduate to gain relevant experience within our support departments, including Pre-construction, Procurement, Design, Engineering and H&S .
