Most of the positions will be based in the UK, however STRI also needs experienced staff in its rapidly expanding Aspire Sports Turf facility in Doha and in its newly formed business in China.

Over the past five years, STRI has reinforced its position as market leader in the sports surface industry. Significant investments have been made, including the development of new research facilities in Australia and Qatar and the launch of design and consultancy hubs in Asia-Pacific and the Middle East.

STRI Group Director, Lee Penrose, said: “This is a brilliant opportunity to work for the world’s leading sports surface business during a period of rapid global expansion.

“We want to strengthen the talent pool in all our offices so we can continue to offer our high-quality services to a wider variety of clients, across a range of sport and amenity sectors.

“This is an exciting period of growth for STRI and I’m looking forward to welcoming more new members of staff in 2017.”
