Expect a range of high-quality public sector work including central and local government

The public sector team has seen significant growth in recent years. The department has won a number of key sources of work especially central government tenders which have resulted in a pipeline of exciting commercial projects.

The team operates a fantastic, hybrid working pattern which offers you the ability to do great work within a flexible working environment.
