Are you looking for an exciting and unique engineering job where you will spend much or your time outside, undertaking site work in unusual places then this could be the job for you!!


RSK Environment Ltd, a member of the RSK Group Ltd, includes a Materials & Structures department based in Hemel Hempstead that provides specialist inspection, surveying and investigation services into the built environment. The department also includes a UKAS-accredited materials-testing laboratory, which enables us to provide a full in house service for evaluating engineering properties and condition factors of construction materials and provide our clients with detailed assessment reports and guidance.


Our success is founded on the talent of our employees, so we recognise the importance of personal growth, encouragement and earned rewards. As a company, we want you to share in our achievements and we want to be a conduit for your success.
