About Katoni Engineering

We are an independent Oil & Gas engineering company based in Aberdeen with international ambitions. The company has recently appointed into several key positions and we are about to take the next step on our growth path. This year is an exciting time to join the company.  

We specialise in Brownfield modifications, engineering, design, procurement, installation and commissioning both onshore and offshore– providing original thinking and technical excellence. We operate with agility and have invested in large company diligence demonstrated through our various accreditations and certifications. 

We have a team of exceptional multi-disciplined engineers, designers, technicians and business people. It is our vision to be recognised as the most trusted engineering company known widely for delivering on our promises. 

Through the recruitment process we hope we can demonstrate that Katoni Engineering is different and a brilliant place to work. This is a place we want people to build careers, create a balance between work and home and show how exceptional you are to colleagues and clients. 

You’ll find all about Katoni during your interview process including getting a feel for how we work and what our ambitions are. However, for now it is safe to say you will work in a safe, secure and exciting environment. As an individual your work will be varied but likely to focus on 1 or 2 main clients. You’ll be joining a company with a fantastic open culture and a place with a strong commitment to developing staff and looking after our contractors. 

These Engineering roles are coming up as we look to grow and put in place a team for the future. We therefore have positions available immediately at most levels from lead to developing Structural engineers so we'e encourage you to drop us a CV or an informal approach if you want to find out more before formally applying.

The package

The package will be built around you. 

We do not have a fixed package as every person has different motivations and life needs. However, for more senior (e.g. lead or senior type roles) we are willing to offer strong incentives particularly for anyone looking for a staff role and keen to take the next stage in thier career.

Your flexible package could be a staff or contract role. You are likely to work from our office but home working could be an option and we can offer a range of incentives too. Our packages are always competitive. We're happy to discuss this early in the process to ensure we are all comfortable before moving to agreeing final contracts ensuring we are open and honest from the start.

What you’ll work on

This role is responsible for producing, reviewing, commenting on and accepting proposals, calculations, specifications and drawings while ensuring that the work is planned and executed in accordance with Katoni’s project execution plan and policies for Health and Safety, Quality and Environmental protection.  

Your experience will mean you’ll work with minimal supervision but be rest assured the team is here to support you including other designers and engineers. From time to time you are likely to be part of multi-discipline work scopes and so team work will also be important.

On a day to day basis you’ll work on a range of outputs which will vary as we have lead and senior roles available. However, broadly you’ll focus on:
