Many times, the safety of entire communities is influenced by our work. On one project in Florida, I worked with a client to make sure a critical 911 communications facility would be operable during and after a Category 5 hurricane. Advising them on things like how to protect vital generator systems and helping them make costeffective design decisions, I had a hand in building something truly substantial. In the end, our client was happy to have a partner that understood and worked with them to meet their unique needs.

One of the world’s largest industrial and commercial property insurance companies, FM Global is growing every day. Why not join a team dedicated to supplying state-of-the-art loss-prevention engineering and research to more than one-third of FORTUNE 1000 companies worldwide? We rely on a dynamic, culturally diverse group of employees, working in more than 100 countries, in a variety of challenging roles to accomplish our objectives.

At FM Global you have the power to influence outcomes and make a difference in the future - yours, your clients’, and the company’s. When you join our UK Operations team as a Consultant Risk Engineer, you can use your engineering background to help clients mitigate potential disaster—saving property, businesses and lives.


Our engineers do not spend their days behind a desk. They are out in the field, working at the some of the UK’s largest industrial facilities to help prevent losses from fires, equipment breakdowns and natural hazards. You may find yourself evaluating a fire exposure at a pharmaceutical plant or a sprinkler system in a warehouse that will protect it from a major fire that could otherwise disrupt the total supply chain. You will also assist our clients by providing guidance on the risk engineering and construction of new sites or modifications of their existing sites. It’s a hands-on job requiring high energy, self-motivation and creativity.

Your career will start with a structured training programme including self-study, e-based assessment, classroom learning and mentoring. You will soon find yourself working independently, travelling to client facilities to help solve complicated technical issues and generate risk improvement.


Successful candidates will have the following knowledge, skills and experience:

  • Minimum of a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering. We are ideally looking for Mechanical, Fire, Electrical or Structural/Civil Engineers although consideration will be given to other subject areas or applicable science/technology graduates.
  • Ideally two years plus industrial experience in an Engineering role.
  • Strong verbal and written communications skills.
  • Good analytical, organisational, problem solving, and interpersonal skills.
  • Efficient time management with the ability to work with minimal direction.
  • Proven technical aptitude including a diverse knowledge of engineering principles.
  • Valid UK driver’s licence.
  • Proficient in MS Office products.
  • The right to live and work in the UK.

The role is initially based at our Maidenhead Office during the first twelve months however once the training has taken place there is the ability to work from home (subject to location) on a regular basis. Candidates should be willing to travel extensively, primarily within the UK, but with some international travel and training assignments.

We offer our employees a wide range of benefits including long term career development and training, a contributory, final salary pension scheme, generous health and well-being programmes, volunteer days and so much more!

Interested applicants should submit a CV and cover letter, indicating their salary expectations.

FM Global is an Equal Opportunity Employer and is committed to attracting, developing and retaining a diverse workforce.

Closing Date for Applications:  12th November 2021.
