Imagine a career in which you are having one-of-a-kind work experiences helping clients identify and understand what could go wrong. Our Consultant Engineers evaluate risk and reward, calculate potential disaster and anticipate ways to protect against nature’s greatest forces. Built on trust, communication and technology, we will give you the training to work with a large variety of clients to protect their business operations from fire, natural disasters, mechanical breakdown and other types of property risk.

Responsibilities

If you enjoy variety, put your time-management and organizational skills to use handling field visits, office work, and projects for large commercial occupancies and hazards.  You will work with minimal supervision and must be capable of working independently.

 

Initially, assignments will be of limited scope and complexity giving you the opportunity to learn.  You will gradually begin assessing risks at larger complex commercial properties by visiting client facilities and performing evaluations that accurately quantify foreseeable physical and human element exposures while working with client on-site risk management.  Responsibilities will include:

 

  • Perform hands-on site assessments of the physical property, including roofs
  • Conduct evaluations which include, but are not limited to, site water supplies, dust hazards, chemical storage, and rack storage arrangements for client products
  • Ensure that FM Global Engineering Standards are followed and, as necessary communicate the appropriate recommendations and/or engineering solutions to clients 
  • Working from a home office and travel to clients' facilities daily (overnight travel is expected approximately 30% of the time). Travel to Natural Catastrophe sites will be required as needed.

Qualifications

Successful Consultant Engineer candidates have the following qualifications:

  • Minimum of a bachelor’s degree in engineering or fire protection (various specialties considered)
  • 5-10 years of experience 
  • Strong verbal and written English communications skills
  • Good analytical, organizational, problem solving, and interpersonal skills
  • Efficient time management ability with minimal supervision
  • Solid technical aptitude including diverse knowledge of engineering principles
  • Valid driver’s license
  • Physical ability to climb ladders, lift >25 lbs., balance, and heights
  • Proficient in MS Office products
  • Authorization to work in the country you are applying to work in

You will be expected to work independently and should be willing to operate from your home office and travel to client sites in the NJ/NY/PA daily.
