Our clients are a specialist Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental consultancy delivering leading edge services for a wide range of clients. They provide advice and design solutions on a broad range of ground related issues, working directly with site developers or their design and construction teams.
A Graduate Engineer will be expected to be able to transfer the learning gained during their education to a commercial environment, and to apply principles that they have acquired in combination with practical ability. They will be expected to work closely with project managers and other project engineers as part of a team. They will be expected to work within the office environment undertaking project work including report writing, computations, analysis and compilation of graphs and figures, etc. On site they will be expected to undertake basic logging of soils and rock and supervision duties and be able to form a basic understanding of the ground conditions and not see site work as simply a data gathering exercise or devoid of commercial imperatives.

The following competencies identify the criteria to be demonstrated after the relevant training:

1. To be able to organise arrangements for non-complex small and medium sized site investigations, log soils to BS/EC7 standard

2. To be able to produce non-complex drawings and graphs using Microsoft programs.

3. To write reports that are consistently factually correct and in a reasonable standard of technical English

4. To be able to use basic software and perform basic calculations (i.e. logging packages, contamination assessment spreadsheets, waste disposal spreadsheets, soakaway calculations etc.) and able to self-check for errors.

5. To organise and source desk study information and demonstrably regard it as an understanding process and not simply data collection.

6. To collect investigation/design/report data in accordance with clients SOPs, and to populate the relevant site forms and sheets with factually accurate data.

7. To have an understanding of the principles of ground and conceptual models and to be able to interpret desk study information, site investigation data and laboratory test results such that a basic ground/conceptual model can be developed.
