You may not have heard of KGAL but you may well have benefited from our work.

Take energy from SSE? KGAL helps keep the power flowing. Taken a car from Dover to France? KGAL engineers helped bridge the gap from quay to ferry. Live in the flatlands of England's Thames estuary? KGAL helps to ensure you remain protected from tidal-surge flooding.

These projects and others, here in the UK and overseas, were made possible by the dedication, talent and sheer enthusiasm of our people.

We’ve grown every year by taking on new challenges and new people; people with pride and the same passion for excellence. And we’ve grown by being agile and, in our decision-making and recruitment, remaining independent.

There’s no remote plc pulling the strings. Most of our directors and associate directors sit in open plan with their teams. It keeps the structure flat and management accessible, with swift direction and decision-making.

And, because we remain autonomous within the Whessoe group, a large share of profits are not only reinvested in the business but a proportion is also given back to employees under our bonus scheme.

What’s more, this flat structure means everyone is valued equally; so you can make a real impact whatever your role. Whether in our offices at Gloucester, Wakefield or Poole in Dorset, dealing with a client, resolving a problem, collaborating with partners or contributing to future thinking; you’ll have plenty of opportunity to make a real difference.

But we’re a small team of just over 40 people. So recruitment is always modest whilst those we take on have to be truly outstanding, or have the potential to be outstanding.

Be you a graduate engineer, a CAD technician or project manager. Your first job, second job or a more mature career development; if you embrace our values, like what we do, and think we might like what you do, then you should share your CV with us.
