Job profile

About JN Bentley

As a business we directly employ over 1800 people, which includes a large site-based weekly resource – something that sets us apart.

We delivered close to £300 million worth of work in 2022, with turnover set to rise to £400 million by the end of 2023 – delivered by JN Bentley and our two design and build businesses: Mott MacDonald Bentley (MMB) and JBA Bentley (JBAB).


As a business we work hard to develop lasting relationships with our clients, and our business has grown largely from repeat work. Our philosophy is simple – construction is about providing a service and as such we always work collaboratively and flexibly with our clients in a spirit of openness and honesty.


We believe that this positive approach to project management with clients has contributed greatly to our on-going successes. We pride ourselves on working with our clients to find innovative solutions to traditional construction problems and applying the latest technology to drive efficiencies and reduce waste – without compromising on quality.


Our ethos, experience and systems are ideal for ensuring the successful delivery of projects and programmes of work with clients of all sizes through both framework agreements and traditionally-procured projects.
