The ideal candidate will hold a recognised academic qualification in a mechanical / electrical engineering discipline which should be at least HNC, HND, NVQ 4 or equivalent. You will also have a relevant level of practical experience in a related engineering field, which should ideally be a recognised apprenticeship alongside some direct relevant engineering experience with pressure plant (particularly steam raising).

What our Surveyors say:

I inspect pressure systems, ranging from coffee machines up to industrial boilers. Each day I’ll be out and about testing kit across my work area. It’s up to me to plan my work, so what I normally do is contact a major client and once I’ve got approval to go and inspect their site I’ll plan the rest of the day around them.

Sometimes someone might cancel you after you’ve arrived, so then you have to think on your feet. By looking through the company data on your ToughBook you’ll find other work you can do.
