Orkney provides a beautiful setting in which to live and work and a wonderful opportunity to combine a fulfilling and challenging career with the best that the islands can offer in terms of lifestyle.

Our vibrant and forward-thinking community is regularly voted the happiest and the best place to live in the UK.

Our quality of life is second to none. With a rising population, excellent local services and a multitude of opportunities and facilities to cater for whatever your interests outside of work may be.

We are looking for a Graduate Civil Engineer to join our Engineering Services Team. The team has a diverse workload which includes new works and maintenance covering roads, bridges, harbours, airfields, flood protection and development infrastructure. Reporting to the Lead Engineer (Roads and Infrastructure) you will have the opportunity to work in these areas assisting with the preparation of designs, preparing contracts and supervision of contractors.

Whilst the Council is the smallest in the United Kingdom, the roles and responsibilities and the range of infrastructure is broad, hence the engineering team draws enormous satisfaction from the diversity and intensity of work.

You will hold a degree in Civil Engineering or equivalent level qualification and have good IT capability including CAD.

This is a career grade post and salary will be linked to progression through a career development scheme.

This post meets the employer's requirements for sponsorship from level 3 of the career grade structure.

You should be able to travel efficiently and effectively between various work locations within Orkney to meet the operational requirements of the Service.

This post is subject to Basic Disclosure Scotland clearance.
