Careers Overview

Every day, we enter buildings without a single thought as to how safe we are; we are trusting others to protect us from harm in the buildings where we work, live or just pass through.  Sadly, as we have seen recently, this trust can sometimes be misplaced.

Here at Tenos we have made it our vision to ensure that people can work, live and sleep safe from the effects of fire and we strive to do that with our team of committed, professional engineers who draw on technical expertise, creativity and a desire for knowledge to do things better.

If our vision resonates with you, then read on! We have opportunities for all Fire Engineering grades based in our Manchester, London and Bristol offices.


Why should you consider Tenos for your next career move?


Our Commitment to Quality

Here at Tenos we do things a little differently. Every project must be done properly, which for most of what we tackle, means safely.  We conduct our business with safety and quality at the top of our agenda, and we only want to work with clients who share those values.  If you were wondering, we do turn away clients who are looking for a quick fix or want short-cuts; these really don’t fit our vision.

In order to achieve this we have built an extensive library of knowledge spanning multiple specialisms; covering the history of fire safety, regulation and codes, what good looks like, why things have gone wrong and what new knowledge and technology can offer.

We work in open plan offices, which means every engineer at whatever grade will have direct access to some of the best thought-leaders in the industry (see Our Team).

“I’ve been working at Tenos for a few years and looking back it has been a great environment to learn and develop as a Fire Engineer.  I’ve been lucky enough to be involved in some brilliant projects both in the UK and internationally.  The Tenos culture is important to me too: professionalism; acting ethically and with integrity; respect.”

Andy – Senior Engineer


Our Commitment to Professionalism

Our reputation has been built with over 20 years of hard work and commitment to the profession.

Not only do we actively encourage our Engineers to progress their career in the direction they wish, we are also committed to supporting them to gain Chartered status with the Engineering Council. We currently have a much higher ratio than the industry average of Chartered Fire Engineers to Engineers within our design team, and those that have achieved Chartered status are passionate about helping anyone else who wish to follow this route.


Our Commitment to You

Whether you are joining us as an experienced engineer or just starting out, you will have many opportunities to learn; we value our collaborative environment and encourage knowledge and idea sharing at every level.

This is the perfect environment if you want to advance your career, learn and work across a wide range of sectors and engage directly with clients; take a look at our projects to find out more.

Joining Tenos means working alongside thought leaders in the field of fire engineering, delivering innovative, quality solutions on projects in the UK and overseas.

What’s more, we offer a very competitive rewards and benefits package too.

Having been made welcome from the start, I feel that Tenos is a career environment akin to a family.  The Employee Owned Trust truly connects me to, and engages me with the business”
