About the employer

Cornelsen Ltd is a manufacturer and installer of water and air/vapour treatment systems, operating across the UK and Europe. We provide treatment plants on a sale and a rental basis and much of our work involves moving the rental systems from place to place – decommissioning and recommissioning them, maintaining them, upgrading, and initially constructing them. We work within the petrochemical, chemical and allied, pharmaceutical and nuclear industries as well as construction and industry – in essence, what we do is very niche but can be in very diverse settings. We are a relatively small team, which allows for each member to grow their role as they develop, and decision making is local – each team member thus becomes an involved part of the company and each project.
