At FM Global you have the power to influence outcomes and make a difference in the future - yours, your clients', and the company's. When you join our team as a Consultant Engineer, you have the ability to leverage your engineering background to help clients neutralize potential disaster--saving property, businesses and lives.
With the company's nearly two centuries of knowledge and experience behind you, you'll work hands on with some of the world's most influential organizations, helping them understand risk and protect their assets. And you will have the resources to build a rewarding career at FM Global including 18 months of classroom and field based training to start.

Consultant Engineers are charged with ensuring that FM Global Engineering Standards are followed and, as necessary, must communicate the appropriate recommendations and/or engineering solutions to ensure client understanding and agreement for risk improvement so strong communication, listening and interpersonal skills are a must.
You should be willing to operate from a home office and will be expected to travel to clients' facilities daily; overnight travel is expected approximately 30% of the time. You must also be willing to travel to Natural Catastrophe sites as needed.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
