Competitive Salary

Our client provides consultancy design services for strategic and Local Highway networks. The team works on both major design projects and local network improvements and undertakes services on national to local frameworks, including those with Highways England Area 10,13, and 14 to the A66 dualling programme and the Midlands Highways Alliance (MHA).

Passionate about highway projects that design and take pride in seeing our towns and cities thrive by improving connectivity, journey times and quality of life.

The role

The successful candidate will undertake the production of geotechnical designs, working as part of a dedicated Ground Engineering design team. The team provides support to our Highways England contracts across the Northwest and our local authority contracts in Stafford and Swindon. Due to the variety of schemes our Geotechnical team works on, the role will have scope to look at the full project life-cycle from conceptual design through to detailed design and on-site ground investigation supervision.

The team has several highly experienced Senior and Principal Engineers so this is an ideal learning platform for someone to develop their geotechnical specialism: perhaps, you are coming to the end of a graduate geotechnical design role, and you might be a highways/structures civil engineer with a Geotech bias or alternatively working in a Ground Investigations role on site.

In a typical week you will:
  • Assist in the planning and execution of desk studies, ground investigations, outline ,and detailed geotechnical designs
  • Assist with project planning, programming, cost control , and administration
  • Assist in the management and monitoring of the budget for projects
  • Carry out inspection work, feasibility studies, report preparation, cost estimating
  • Respond to queries and liaise with clients, third parties, and other stakeholder groups
  • Prepare design calculations, drawings, technical documents, and project reports ensuring compliance with current standards
  • Undertake surveys and site supervision duties
  • Support the preparation of bids and delivery of services on other contracts, when required
  • Assist in the implementation of cost-effective and innovative design solutions

We want to hear from you if:
  • You have a Bachelor' or Master' degree in an appropriate subject
  • You are able to demonstrate limited experience and expertise within the relevant geotechnical field, probably gained in a Graduate Geotechnical Engineer role or equivalent
  • You have knowledge of geotechnical software
  • You are able to produce technically sound geotechnical engineering solutions, complying with all relevant technical standards and client requirements, working under the supervision
  • You are experienced in following procedures associated with health, safety, and welfare, e.g. Construction (Design and Management) Regulations
  • You are able to comply with technical governance procedures within a consulting engineering environment
  • You have a proven ability to work within a team environment with a dedicated approach to meeting project deadlines
  • You have good communication skills with the ability to communicate with clients and stakeholders
