Our mission is to make Britain a safer place.  If you want to sell the services of an ‘Award Winning Company’ that leave nothing to chance, it’s a no brainer, British Engineering Services is the place for you! 

As a Sales Executive  with British Engineering Services you will focus on developing new business through our existing broker markets, nurturing and growing these relationships to ensure maximum profitability of each account. You will develop sales for our full range of services; but primarily our inspection services for machinery and equipment used on a daily basis which require our thorough programme of inspections. 

We are an independent Engineering Inspection business, with over 400 highly skilled Engineer Surveyors and Engineering Consultants who inspect, test and report on industrial machinery to keep the UK industry, businesses and public safe.
