- Answer any queries visitors may have about the machines you are working on
- Work as part of a team of engineers, sharing knowledge and ideas, and being aware of health and safety concerns
Knowledge and Experience

- There will be many opportunities for experienced engineers to apply their knowledge and skills to running and developing the Museum’s collection
