This role is primarily working with Severn Trent Water to deliver a range of water and wastewater treatment projects as part of their frameworks in AMP7 and beyond.
Projects are developed from feasibility through to detailed design and construction. If you thrive in a varied, vibrant environment, and are committed to delivering the best outcomes for the client, end users and society then we want to hear from you!

This may include compiling GI enquiries, interpretation and verifying ground investigation data; providing technical supervision of fieldwork and producing interpretive reports.

You will be supported by an existing Geotechnical team distributed across seven MMB framework contracts with some of the UKs largest water companies, in addition to our Global Geotechnical Practice group

  • Grow your professional networks, including engagement with our global Mott MacDonald practices and learning from our subject matter experts.

  • Competent in the use of industry standard geotechnical design software (e.g., Slope/W, Seep/W, gINT, Leapfrog Works, Settle 3D)
  • Experience in the field of ground engineering in the UK, with a full understanding of the geotechnical lifecycle of construction projects.
  • Good communication, report writing, team working and problem solving skills
  • Experience working in design & build environment and water / wastewater sector desirable but not essential.

We will support your development and actively encourage working towards professional qualification - you will have control of your own career path. This role will provide you with excellent long-term potential to advance your career in an innovative and collaborative environment.
