Senior Structural Engineer/Associate
Are you passionate and inspired about design solutions? Enjoy working as part of a small team that is really going places? Keen to progress your career with the potential for future business equity?
Do you enjoy fancy and complex structural challenges but understand that the "bread and butter" work also needs to be done? Do you enjoy thinking up solutions that will work while saving your clients money and meeting their criteria?
This role is effectively to work as a no. 2 to the current Director who is a respected Author, MICE and MIStructE qualified, a fantastic mentor and innovator. He has worked in large practices previously and on some spectacular projects. The practice currently has 6 staff and is looking to grow further, but plans to always remain a small, niche design studio. There would be a future Equity option potentially for the right candidate.
The consultancy has been running over 10 years and has won multiple awards, for best business innovation, best professional practice, engineering awards and entrepreneurship.
This role would suit an ambitious senior structural engineer who is looking to progress and grow their career. You should be MICE or MIStructE qualified (or very nearly there). You need to be hands on with the design, a leader and problem solver, good with clients and happy to assist in the running of the business, networking with clients, report writing, managing and mentoring staff.
Projects are generally in the region of £2-3m but can be smaller or up to £20-30m in value. The workload is very varied so you must be able to juggle working on many projects at once, enjoy variety, attending site, writing reports, liaising with clients, networking and business development. You should be a good all rounder, experienced in all the main materials. Examples of schemes include basements, lofts, community buildings, art installations and unusual structures, staircases, temporary works, new builds and refurbs. They also do some pro bono charity work.
The firm believes that engineering should be fun and they are a holistic, productive and flexible practice, where a work life balance is considered very important. They can offer flexible working hours, plenty of social interaction and constant learning and development.
The offices are a 10 minute walk from Twickenham station.
