Careers at Breakwater

We have vacancies for brilliant Engineers.

As a rapidly expanding business, we are always looking out for dynamic members of staff with a real ‘can do’ attitude and a good level of experience using a wide range of IT systems.

All of our staff work together very much as a team.  The Breakwater philosophy is all about providing an outstanding customer service so that we are seen as a partner of our customers and not just another supplier.   

Being a Breakwater team member will involve supporting customers and resolving their issues, either remotely or via onsite visits.  You must be prepared to take ownership and responsibility for ensuring that the customers are always kept informed of the situation, even after the issue has been resolved.

We would love to hear from people of all levels, get in touch!
