Paul Humphrey, Project Director: “This is a unique project in a sector with a large portfolio of secured and future work”

The leading UK engineering business is paying above market rates for work on a multi-million-pound new project in Reading/Berkshire.

If you’re a mechanical or electrical operative who wants a highly competitive financial package, including bonuses, and up to eighteen months’ work with potential for more, then this should pique your interest.

NG Bailey’s Engineering division is seeking up to 200 skilled operatives with experience in engineering construction to work on a new multi-million-pound, world-leading project in Berkshire. Vacancies include mechanical and electrical supervisors, technicians, electricians and pipe fitters.

Project Director Paul Humphrey said the roles came with a host of benefits, including the opportunity to work on a technically challenging project that would look great on any CV. “This project has never been built before and never will be built again,” he said.

“It is a one of a kind project in a developing sector where there is a large portfolio of secured and future work.”

The nuts and bolts are attractive, too. Pay rates have been benchmarked against other major projects in and around London; there is an allowance payment of £1 per hour worked and a project specific working hours payment of £50, paid weekly.

There is also potential for career and development opportunities with NG Bailey, the UK’s largest independent engineering, IT and facilities services business, which has a long-standing reputation as an employer of choice.

Paul said the positions offered could last for eighteen months to three years, and beyond that, further opportunities were likely. For example, the project would develop skills highly useful for operatives interested in working on Hinkley Point C in Somerset, the UK’s first new nuclear power plant in over 20 years.

Balfour Beatty Bailey, a joint venture of NG Bailey and Balfour Beatty, is preferred bidder for several key contracts at the plant. “We tend to employ people for the long-term, and we invest heavily in their development,” he said.
