There's Always a Home for Great People at DSL

Our business model is a little different. Our business is built around our people. When someone joins our team, we go and find interesting, profitable assignments for them to work on that play to their strengths, skills and interests.

First and foremost we look for people with similar values and attitudes; for people who love the challenge and satisfaction for fixing things; and for people who have a natural engineering talent.

You may be highly experienced or you may just have a real desire and the talent to become an excellent engineer.

Take a look at our values, the attitudes we look for and the sort of work we do. If you feel we’ll be a good match, please get in touch. Whether you’re a raw recruit or a seasoned professional we’ll know if you’ve got what it takes.

I wish to confirm that for a number of years Detailed Services Ltd. has been employed as a subcontractor. The contracts that DSL have been employed on include a mixture of Chemical, Food, Paper and general utilities.

All of the above clients require a high level of Safety, Health, Environmental and Legal management and DSL provide that entire requirement. Please feel free to contact myself to confirm DSL’s suitability to be a preferred supplier.

Senior Contract Manager

We have used DSL for several years now, and I can highly recommend their services. We have forged a strong working relationship between us throughout this time.

I have found them to be indispensable to our Timber business, always professional with good sound advice always available. They are very knowledgeable in their field, and quickly gain knowledge of our requirements also. They have become my 1st port of call, when I need assistance, or just advice.

Group Technical Manager

The installation of the kaizen cells has been achieved according to plan, budget and timescales avoiding any complications and production downtime. Your engineers have fully understood our requirements and have been a key part in delivering the project, working efficiently alongside our own personnel. All recommendations you have made along the way have served towards a successful installation.

We intend to use this project as a benchmark for the rest of our production areas. DSL will be an integral part of the team that will implement these changes. Please give our thanks to all involved in the project.
