Part of the Mott MacDonald Group, we work with major clients in the water industry and beyond, delivering full feasibility, design, construction and commissioning on challenging schemes across the UK. We’re currently looking for talented graduate mechanical engineers to join our teams. 

Our mechanical engineers work on site and in the office, carrying out important design, planning and commissioning work.  You’ll have chance to put your learning from university into action as well as develop new skills, working with supportive teams delivering a variety of interesting projects.

  • Support the project team coordinating the mechanical aspects of projects, together with producing mechanical design.
  • Be offered key training and opportunities for development. 
  • Help us maintain a world-class safety culture.
  • Liaise with subcontractors and suppliers, including confirming and approving their drawings and designs, and overseeing their activity on site.
  • Assist with the production of estimates and costs. 
  • Produce important design, health and safety and contract documentation.
  • Prepare important completion documents such as O&M manuals and commissioning plans.
  • Undertake site-based commissioning.
What you'll bring:

  • Confidence, motivation and the ability to handle a number of tasks at once.  
  • A strong work ethic – sites and design offices are busy places!
  • A keen eye for meeting the needs of the client. 
  • An understanding of engineering practices.
  • The ability to work both independently and in a team.
  • Good communication skills and a willingness to learn.
