Here in the engineering department we are looking at expanding our market overseas. As many of us living in England, a few lucky ones have escaped to a hotter climate. However, for some reason, they do sometimes return.
We are wanting to inform 'expats' as some people may call them, that we are here to help. We are contactable 24 hours, 7 days per week making it easier for any time difference issues.

As many of you skilled engineers know, finding a job in the present climate isn't the easiest thing to do. With employers now stating they will increase there focus onto their existing employees it makes it even harder for people looking for jobs.
However at Bailey Finch we still have a few unique opportunities still to be filled in the CNC and the Mechanical Design Engineer market.

250 Jobs may be created with thanks to the Western United Mines (WUM) as they increase their activity across their sites in Cornwall. The mining company have recently been exploratory drilling at the South Crofty mine near Cambourne for the past 18 months and is set to begin activities across additional sites in the area.
The mine which is Europe's last Tin mine, closed in 1998 but was shortly bought by WUM in 2001 with the firm saying they will spend £50M on restarting the mine.This said, another £3.5M is being spent in the next seven months on continuing the mine development.
Rising Tin prices has given the mine, which first opened in the late 16th Century, another 80 years of life.

The work that Brunel is probably best remembered for, is his construction of tunnels and bridges for the Great Western Railway. With the Great Western Railways being one of the wonders of Victorian Britain his designs revolutionised public transport and modern engineering. In 1833, he was appointed their chief engineer and work began on the line that linked London to Bristol.
His career embraced civil, marine, structural, architecture and design with his attention to detail, showman ship and his hands on approach he was truly an inspiring man to be working for during this civilisation. Brunel set the standard for a very well built railway, using careful surveys to minimise grades and curves but this however wasn't his only great design. Through his monumental bridges he built (Clifton suspension, Hungerford Bridge, Golden Jubilee Bridges, Royal Albert Bridge and many more) his hundreds pf miles of railway track, impressive tunnels and massive dock-works Brunel astonished Britain by taking his career into naval and built steam ships. He built the P. s Great Western which was the quickest of its time, The S.s Great Britain which was the first propeller driven ship and the P.s.s Great Eastern which was the largest ship of its time all of which were capable of crossing the Atlantic Ocean.
And why is he important to us? Being born in Britain Street, Portsmouth in 1806, Brunel went on to become by far the greatest engineer of his time. Without him, you wouldn't be travelling to work the way you do now. Instead of driving across bridges to get to point A to B, you'd have to drive around a river. Without his huge impact onto the Thames Tunnel, the commute through London wouldn't be what it is today and after engineering over 1,200 miles of railway travelling across Britain would of been very limited. Flying the flag for engineers in all over Hampshire, Brunel is a genius.

When operated as a car, the engine powers the rear wheel drive and lapping miles up to 65 miles per hour. In flight, the engine drives a pusher propeller with its speediest flight being at 107 miles per hour. It boasts folding wings that can fold and unfold in just about a minute, a pusher propeller and twin tail, not to mention being approved for aeronautical and highway use buy the Federal Aviation Administration and being able to take off and land at 5,000 public airports.
