About the Role

An exciting opportunity has arisen for 2 experienced engineers with 2+ years experience to join the team as Engineers in Exeter and work across the South West and beyond. You will be trained, coached and mentored by our team of friendly, experienced and incredibly knowledgeable engineers along a training path that will enable you to become the very best that you can be.

This is a varied role and not one day will be the same……variety is definitely the name of the game here!

We deal with the engineering and environmental interaction between earth materials and the built environment. We work with soil, rock, groundwater and other man made materials to help ground truth and understand the site-specific engineering behaviour beneath our feet. We offer value through our research, investigation, testing, monitoring, reporting and evaluation to reduce the risks associated with the unknowns at pre-construction stage.

Our vision is simple - to be the very best at what we do and to ensure the experience of working with and for us is enjoyable for one and all.

What you'll do:

As an Engineer you will join and be part of our Engineer Training Scheme. A four year tailored programme that aims to apply and build upon your skills learnt at Graduate level and arm you with the necessary new skills, knowledge and experiences to make you the very best engineer you can be in the ground engineering industry. Along the way you will be looked after, trained, mentored and coached by some of the best in the industry to progress further along the Engineer route and on to Senior Engineer and Chartership.

As an Engineer you will supervise other people and activities on site; you will also be involved with Site Safety Supervisor Training (SSSTS). Other training includes First Aid at Work, Defensive Driving and also how to safely operate a Cable Avoidance Tool (CAT) and Genny to avoid underground services. Additionally you will receive training in Administration, Commercial, Technical and Safety, Health, Environmental and Quality.

You will be expected to be competent in the logging of soils and rocks - additional company training will ensure you are able to log to the right standards by experienced engineering geologists.

From day one you will be supported to work through various set goals achieving key skills in order for you and us to track progression. As soon as possible you will be encouraged to be onsite and working woth others and supervising all manners of Ground Investigation.

Although site work plays a large important part of an engineer's early career and to ensure we get the right balance for you we strive to give opportunity to our engineers to be engaged with all aspects of a Ground Investigation to learn the necessary skills to produce Reports, Health and Safety Documentation and ensure you have a good appreciation and knowledge in project and commercial planning and management. All these skills will help you develop both along our Engineer Training Scheme and your own pathway to Chartership.

What we're looking for:

We are currently looking to recruit a knowledgeable person qualified with a degree in Geology, Geo-environmental analysis, Engineering Geology, Civil Engineering or similar who:

* Are suitably qualified

* Are enthusiastic and keen to learn

* Are able to create spreadsheets and other documents for effective reporting, communication and record-keeping

* Hold a full UK driving licence
