Hi All,

I wanted to take this opportunity to first of all thank everyone for their service. Secondly, to see if I can now offer a helping hand.

I work within the commercial building maintenance industry and assist a huge amount of Ex-Forces (Most frequently Navy) Engineers find their next role in Civvy Street. The reason this route is so attractive from this background is for the following reasons:
  • You will be working on extremely similar equipment that you are used to, just with different names / abbreviations.
  • There is an extremely clear career progression route so you will not be joining an industry where you will be putting in manual labour for the rest of your working life.
  • Attractive salaries, huge amounts of training, can also rack up much higher earnings on overtime.
  • Range of environments with different equipment to keep it interesting.
  • Huge amount of our client base are from the same background who understand your skills and experience.
  • Recession proof industry - going into project works, when construction comes to a halt, there are always buildings to be maintained no matter what.
  • Large skills shortage resulting in salaries increasing a lot faster than the current inflation rate which is rare in any industry.
  • Flexibly in shift or day roles to suit your lifestyle
WE deal with a huge range of environments from Corporate Banks, Sports Stadiums, High Security Government Premises, Commercial Offices, Shopping Centre's, Universities, Hospitals and etc.

Basic Salaries (July 2018)

As discussed, in the last 2 years the average salary has increased by around £5,000 per annum for a day engineer so this will also continue to increase in future, especially considering that the UK is crying out for Engineers.

You will also have paid holidays, pension contributions and other benefits dependant on company ie: vehicle allowances, dental care, private health care, discount procedures and etc.
  • Day Engineer (Monday to Friday) - £33,000 - £36,000
  • Shift Engineer (12 hour shifts, ie: 4 on 4 off or continental pattern) - £37,000 - £40,000
  • Critical Shift Engineer - £40,000 - £43,000
  • Supervisor (Monday - Friday) - £40,000 - £45,000
  • Shift Leader - £42,000 - £48,000
  • Engineering Manager (Monday - Friday) - £45,000 - £55,000
  • Contract / Account Manager - £55,000 - £65,000
  • Senior Account Manager - £65,000 - £80,000
  • Account Director - £80,000 - £100,000
I am not looking for you to commit instantly however if you could potentially be interested in finding out more then please email me a CV to [email protected] - this will simply be an open, confidential and informal discussion to explore another option for you. I unfortunately specialise in London & the South East so you will also need to be open to the discussion of re-location or a shift pattern that may work - again this is something I could help you with.

Kind regards,
