Ready to be tested in a bigger job? Keen in contributing to the growth of a Rail design team that is undergoing massive investment?

An employee owned Engineering Consultancy is seeking to hire a Principal Civil Engineer to join their growing Rail team, with them having made 14 hires so far this year. They've also just taken on an additional floor of office space in their existing premises in central London, so big plans ahead!

This position will offer you a relaxed and informal working environment. There isn't an overtime culture and the business prioritises people over profit.

This is a hybrid position with a couple of days per week spent in the office and make sure that one of these is a Thursday - weekly after work drinks with the company card behind the bar!

In the medium term, you'll also be assisting in business development activities to help grow the Rail design team presence in the UK. As the Team grows you will then have opportunity to lead a small team of engineers and designers.

Core responsibilities:

Managing the delivery of projects may act as discipline lead within a multidisciplinary team.
Undertake the civil and structural design and verification for Rail projects in both Australia and the UK.
Maintain client contact and ensure that project delivery meets the client's objectives and requirements (this includes internal clients).
Ensuring that the technical content of all work carried out is correct and completed in accordance within agreed timescales and budgets.
Undertake project delivery tasks, which may include calculations, drawings, sketches and reports.
Provide technical guidance, support and training to colleagues and assist, where practicable, in mentoring and development of others.

What will you need?

An Honours degree in civil or Structural Engineering or suitable equivalent degree
Be near Chartered or Chartered with the ICE or IStructE
A history of delivering civil and structural designs in a railway environment
Experience in leading and managing projects
Be conversant with common UK rail design standards, Eurocodes and leading industry analysis and design software
