Currently located in Kent, South East London, South Essex accessible to an office in the Medway Towns.

Your role will be two fold with a lot of time in the field, sometimes at short notice overseeing the engineering teams on site ensuring that the operation is safe, the equipment has been inspected and pressures only run up to the lowest rates kit in the system which will involve a fair amount of hands on work, client liaison and managerial skills, the other part of the role is office based looking after quotes, technical enquires as well as logistics for moving several tonnes of equipment across the world.  

To be suitable for this role you must currently be based in the South East, easily accessible to a Medway/Maidstone office as you will need to work from there when you are not traveling, have a hands on technical heavy engineering background, happy to travel and stay away overseas on short notice.
