One of our clients have an excellent opportunity to join their project team as a Process Engineer.

The Process Engineer will support various team members and client during all aspects of the projects. Responsibilities will involve using standard process design and process simulation tools for facilities modifications, additions, etc. and to technically determine solutions in sufficient detail to determine cost, verify operability, HSSE compliance and provide equipment and material specifications to the other engineering disciplines. Candidates must be self-driven, demonstrate the ability to multi-task and work effectively under pressure in order to meet project deadlines is essential.

Key duties include:
Interface with the client to develop a project scope including working at site to gather relevant information.
