FM is a leading property insurer of the world's largest businesses, providing more than one-third of FORTUNE 1000-size companies with engineering-based risk management and property insurance solutions. FM helps clients maintain continuity in their business operations by drawing upon state-of-the-art loss-prevention engineering and research; risk management skills and support services; tailored risk transfer capabilities; and superior financial strength. To do so, we rely on a dynamic, culturally diverse group of employees, working in more than 100 countries, in a variety of challenging roles.


If you enjoy variety, put your time-management and organizational skills to use handling field visits, office work, and projects for large commercial and industrial occupancies and hazards. You will work with minimal supervision and must be capable of working independently.

We are currently seeking Consultant Engineers to be based in the Western Michigan area.

Initially, assignments will be of limited scope and complexity giving you the opportunity to learn. You will gradually begin assessing risks at larger, more complex properties by visiting client facilities and performing evaluations that accurately quantify foreseeable physical and human element exposures while working with client on-site risk management. Responsibilities will include:


Perform hands-on site assessments of the physical property, including roofs

Conduct evaluations which include, but are not limited to, site water supplies, dust hazards, chemical storage, and rack storage arrangements for client products


Ensure that FM Engineering Standards are followed and, as necessary communicate the appropriate recommendations and/or engineering solutions to clients


Working from a home office and travel to clients' facilities daily (overnight travel is expected approximately 30% of the time). Travel to Natural Catastrophe sites will be required as needed.


Successful Consultant Engineer candidates have the following qualifications: 

  • Minimum of a bachelor’s degree in engineering (various specialties considered) 
  • Zero to 10 years of industry experience
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills
  • Good analytical, organizational, problem solving, and interpersonal skills
  • Efficient time management ability with minimal supervision 
  • Solid technical aptitude including diverse knowledge of engineering principles 
  • Ability to stay focused from a home office environment
  • Authorization to work in the country you are applying to work in 
  • Physical ability to lift 25 pounds, able to climb ladders, balance, and deal with heights
  • Proficiency in MS Office products
  • A valid driver’s license

You will be expected to work independently and should be willing to operate from your home office. 

FM is an Equal Opportunity Employer and is committed to attracting, developing, and retaining a diverse workforce.

Title and compensation will be commensurate with experience. The hiring range for this position is $70,300 to $133,400. The final salary offer will vary based on geographic location, individual education, skills, and experience. The position is eligible to participate in FM Global’s comprehensive Total Rewards program that includes an incentive plan, generous health and well-being programs, a 401(k) and pension plan, career development opportunities, tuition reimbursement, flexible work, time off allowances and much more.  This position also comes with the added benefit of a company car.
