Methods engineer/technician M/F

Carries out studies and decides on operating methods so that the construction site becomes reality.

Emmanuelle, methods engineer
I like the technical side of my profession as much as I like the opportunity to work with people. Methods engineers provide a link between the commercial phase and execution of the project by the construction teams. We have a dual role: making sure that the project is constructed in the best conditions, while optimising the budget allocated to enable the construction teams to surpass themselves. I am increasingly asked to take part in setting up the offer during the commercial phase, which is a great opportunity for me and a real motivating factor!
