Your new company
Your new company, formed in 1978 is a multidisciplinary organisation based in the heart of Liverpool city centre. With 35 technical staff split over their civil and structural departments, your new company is a firmly established medium sized enterprise competing with larger companies for work across the UK.

With strong beginnings in the healthcare sector, your new company now operates UK wide across education, commercial, leisure and residential. The practice has successfully delivered projects up to £400m, whilst retaining the flexibility and staff-focused approach which made them successful to start with.

What you'll get in return
In return you will receive a highly competitive salary up c.£60,000 (+ bonus) depending on previous experience and responsibility level. Furthermore, a company pension scheme, private healthcare contribution and life insurance policy 2 times salary are included in the package along with a rail card if needed.
