Hawkins was founded on and continues to thrive on expertise, experience, perseverance, and curiosity, together with drive and attention to detail delivered by all.

We are looking for individuals who have carried out their own research and understand what it really means to be a forensic investigator. The job is hugely varied, from evidence gathering at a scene to presenting findings in a Court. The roles require methodical examination and demand high attention to detail. We won’t sugar coat what the role entails; forensic work is not for the fainthearted. Digging out a fire scene to try to determine the cause in the depths of winter can be physically challenging, uncomfortable, and require stamina. Since we investigate both failures and accidents, most cases also have a human element to them, which can be upsetting. However, if you thrive in an environment of technical rigor and have a burning desire to answer the question of ‘Why?’ then this could be a role for you.
We don’t advertise specific vacancies because we always seek to accommodate talented individuals who can add value to our team of experts. We believe that skilled and qualified people will always find their own niche given the right environment.
