Elwood Engineering Services Ltd – Own Ltd Company• Between Oct 1991 (on returning to Scotland from the Middle East) and January 2006 when I took up the post in New Zealand I ran my own Consultancy (EES Ltd). I generally contracted my services out to one major client at a time (as listed below). These appointments were generally of a fairly senior nature with significant staff management responsibility. The length of time for each of these posts was very much dependent on the clients’ staffing needs and policy.• I also carried out work on an ongoing basis for a considerable number of smaller clients, particularly for Structural and Civil Designs. I received regular commissions for Tender Preparation and Assessment and also for Claims Evaluation and Reporting.
