Mabbett is one of the leading safety consultancies in the UK. Since our establishment in 1996, the firm has grown to employ 110 motivated engineers, scientists and supporting professionals. Headquartered in Glasgow, we have regional offices in Belfast, Cardiff, Carlisle, Dublin, Dundee, Edinburgh, Forres, Inverness, Leicester, Liverpool and Winchester. The firm is seeking to recruit senior and principal level process safety engineers to join our growing team, to help in the delivery of a diverse range of technical safety studies for our wide-ranging client base.

We would particularly welcome applications from candidates looking to progress their careers to the next level e.g. from senior to principal. We have a long standing and successful track record of developing highly competent engineers, and our team are well placed to help you achieve your next career objective. We would be pleased to upskill the successful candidate as a Professional Process Safety Engineer (PPSE), Functional Safety Engineer (FSEng), or other mutually agreeable qualification/accreditation of interest to you.

You have the option to be based at any of our office locations, and/or home working if this is preferred.

A positive place to work, Mabbett aims to implement the motto 'See a Difference' in everything that we do.


The successful candidate will work as a member of the Process Safety Team within the wider Safety Group and will be involved in all aspects of professional input to process safety consultancy projects. You will be tasked with delivering high quality technical project work on time and in budget, and helping colleagues do the same.

Wider knowledge of environmental engineering and/or occupational health and safety principles would be beneficial to the role but is not essential. The successful candidate may also be expected to provide marketing and business development support, identifying new clients and opportunities, to support the growth and expansion of the firm.

The successful candidate will work within a supportive and driven team, contributing to client satisfaction, company performance and sales targets.
