Kimpton have been helping to create the sustainable building environments of tomorrow since 1963. Through providing innovative M&E and HVAC Services across the Liverpool City Region, we’ve always been at the forefront of decarbonisation and the drive for net-zero.
As early as 1974, we were designing and installing heat pumps for Walkers Crisps and went on to deliver two other UK firsts in renewable technology. With TATA Steel, we helped develop the first Transpired Solar Collectors in the UK, and with the National Trust, we designed and installed the UK’s first Open Water Source Heat Pump in the sea at Plas Newydd, Anglesey.
Since those early days, we’re still innovating every day, week and year we’re in business.

In return we’re offering a part time role that can fit around school hours as we are happy to agree hours that are either three full days per week, or as equivalent hours spread over five days. The role could also be a different profile from one week to the next through the month if that makes it easier, it would just need to fit with monthly accounting routines.
