Eadon Consulting

How would we sum it up?

We are supporting Eadon Consulting with their recruitment for a graduate engineer. This is a fantastic opportunity to contribute to a world-class Engineering design firm who work on highly complex, bespoke and, in many cases, iconic projects. If you are the kind of engineer who can’t help but admire unusual moving bridges, cranes and ingenious mechanisms, then this could be your dream job. While you’ll hit the ground running on live projects, Eadon's development programme and 1-2-1 coaching will help you to grow into the role and with the company. They are looking for someone with an excellent grasp of engineering principles and the curiosity and intellect to understand the engineering behind these wonderful machines and structures.

What’s the business all about?

We are supporting Eadon Consulting, who are based in Sheffield’s premier Advanced Manufacturing Park. They are the ‘A team’ of the design Engineering world! Clients often turn to them when other engineering firms can’t find a solution to a highly complex or unusual challenge. Their design work spans across multiple sectors, with a deep and broad engineering understanding enabling us to solve complex problems. They have worked on a wide range of projects including moving bridges, ROV launching equipment, rollercoasters, high-integrity nuclear cranes and the design of bespoke machinery and lifting equipment. Recently, they have invested in a 3D printer, which they have used in R&D projects for nuclear decommissioning. They have a global customer base, ranging from consultants, contractors and manufacturers to private companies and individuals. They are a relatively small team but are growing constantly, and they are full of talented individuals. Find out more at
