Are you an Experienced HVAC Design Engineer looking for a change??
Would you like to work for a modern, Dynamic HVAC company based in the midlands?

My client is looking for a HVAC Design engineer to support the current team that they have.
There is scope to innovate and huge amounts of freedom – in terms of methods, flexibility, flexible working. You will be able to control your own diary (with time). Initially you would be in the office, learning, bedding in etc, at least for the first 3 months you'd be in 4 days a week. Once they understand what you are doing then they’d have flexibility to WFH but this is not a remote role.  Site visits are also part of the role. They will work on medium sized projects, between £100,000 and £4 million
