    What we do:

We have staff deployed to approximately 53 locations across the world.

    training in the UK, most likely for a duration of 1-3 weeks.
  • Working for IEI is fantastic, as much as for the development opportunities it offers as the actual experience of delivering our objectives which can be hugely satisfying.
