Mechanical & Electrical Security Engineer

Build your career and help us continue to provide first class support to our clients

A mobile Mechanical & Electrical Security Service Engineer is required to join our expanding company which specialises in the safety, security and control of entrances and exits. As a service provider we like to think we provide a ‘whole door solution’ and require an engineer to match this multi-disciplined approach.

If you join us we will offer a varied and interesting working day mainly with established and prestigious commercial, public and private sector clients. This opportunity is ideal for a person looking to utilise their wide skill sets and use their holistic approach to problem solving. By this we mean we are looking for someone to look at the door / entrance as an all-encompassing security solution, not just as an Access Control problem or an issue with the door leaf.
