REF: 13295
Posted: 31 January 2018
Closes: 28 February 2018

A leading M&E Consulting Practice are seeking to appoint a M&E forensic engineer to join their Expert Witness Team. This is an exciting opportunity to join a group of engineers specialising in the field of M&E forensic engineering and expert witness services. The Group has gained a reputation for independence and excellence in its field which is second to none. As a result, solicitors and others that appoint the team, come to them based upon our reputation and their positive experience of working with the team.

The Expert Witness Team work in resolving engineering problems and disputes. Group members are characterised by their analytical skills, clarity of expression, objective approach and extensive experience, which are all key attributes, essential in litigation and dispute resolution procedures.

Working in the Expert Witness Group you will have the opportunity to investigate and analyse problems on a wide variety of projects, both in the UK and overseas, to a level and depth that is unlikely to be encountered in the course of normal project work. As a result these vacancies will suit engineers with a strong technical background with an enquiring mind and an ability to solve complex problems. You should also have, or be able to develop, the ability to explain complex technical issues to non-technical people coupled.

Previous experience of litigation or expert witness type work would be helpful but is not essential. You will not be expected to take on the role of an expert witness from day one but will grow into the role by assisting key members of the Group.


  • Have a degree in their primary engineering discipline and/or Building Services Engineering
  • Be a chartered engineer
  • Be able to communicate complex technical issues to non-technical people in both written and verbal formats
  • Be able to think logically and construct a logical and cohesive argument
  • Be able assimilate large amounts of information and rapidly identify the key aspects thereof
  • Have a sound general knowledge of industry standards, regulations and guidance
  • Have an enquiring mind without fixed or pre-conceived ideas
  • Have exceptional interpersonal skills

Although not essential it would be desirable if the appointed person has also:-

  • Published and/or contributed to technical papers
  • Contributed to industry guidance
  • Held office in CIBSE and/or IMechE
  • Had some previous experience of expert witness work and/or construction litigation
