JACOBS Field Services Ltd is part of the premier global company Jacobs Engineering.
A consulting, design, engineering, construction, operations and maintenance and technical services firm, it delivers advanced solutions for a more connected, sustainable world.
From a base in Grimsby, as well as offices in Leeds, Derby, Blyth, Thatcham and West Cumbria, it serves a diverse range of companies and organisations, including industrial, commercial and government clients across multiple markets and geographies.
Now a truly national company with the added advantage of having global roots at a local level, Field Services offers project and construction-based services to a very diverse client base that is made up from existing, core and new clients alike.
It currently works across multiple business sectors, locally and nationally. The client base includes Phillips 66, British Steel and Coal Products Ltd on the South Bank and Nippon Gohsei, BP, Centrica Storage Easington and Yorkshire Water across the Humber Bridge.
Stretching further afield, it provides services to the Ministry of Defence and nuclear networks as well as the petrochemical, refining and utility industries.
A growing involvement in the onshore wind farm sector marks a significant change in the culture of the business and the support of promoting renewable energy.
And it is continually looking to recruit the right candidates.
A spokesperson said: “People are the heart of our business and we pride ourselves on having a retained core workforce that provides a reliable service for our clients – our valued partners. We are proud to be investors in our workforce and actively recruit a large number of apprentices across all disciplines every year, apprentices that we are pleased to say are trained and retained members of our workforce.
“Our apprentices work on live projects within multi-disciplinary project teams. They build meaningful skills, enabling them to take up junior positions in project teams once they have completed their apprenticeships.
“We foster a collaborative and inclusive environment for our people and our partners to implement positive growth within our business.”
The 900 plus workforce comprises both professional and craft skilled personnel across all disciplines. The services provided to clients typically include: construction management; project engineering; design; project support; business administration; electrical and instrumentation technicians; mechanical services; piping; fabrication; welding; rigging; machine shop services; civil services; minor construction; small scale foundations and excavations; bricklaying; joinery; painting and structural engineering.
