CAD & BIM Technician

Location:Brighton and Hove
Job Type:Full Time

Our staff are contributing to schemes that make a real difference to people's lives, both at home and abroad, and we are looking for a talented CAD & BIM technician who can help us provide yet greater benefits to yet more people.

Consolidation within the engineering sector continues apace, but we still stand as a bastion of the employee ownership model - independent in thought and action, making decisions based on what is best for our clients and our staff.

Their workload and client base are remarkably diverse, covering projects with Southern Water and Thames Water (amongst other utility companies), the Environment Agency, other central/local government bodies, and private companies (UK and international).
