About the Job

The business is built upon solid foundations in the rail industry (predominantly Traction & Rolling Stock but also in depot build, and minor civils infrastructure such as bridge refurbishments, embankment repairs, piling, car parks troughing etc) with long term ambitions of expanding into new areas and gaining the necessary accreditations and EA codes in other industries complementing the outstanding service already on offer to rail clients. In this role, you will be seen as an integral 'Decision Maker' in the eyes of the company and UKAS and will be expected to advise Directors & colleagues on QHSE latest developments and best practice, promote and develop business opportunities, maintain accurate and up-to-date customer records, contribute to the tendering, evaluation and negotiation process for the award of contracts and agreements.
