Senior Civil Design Engineer - Water
Salary up to £60k

Our client are a leading design, engineering, environment and regulatory consultancy who are planning and designing sustainable communities and cities of the future. Due to securing further workload, their Leeds Head office are looking for a talented and motivated Senior/Principal Civil Engineer to join their Water Team to deliver outline design and detailed specifications primarily for water and wastewater schemes

They are able to draw upon a combined knowledge base of 20,000 experts across Northern Europe and have more technologies, more skills and more inventive solutions meaning they can apply global knowhow, locally across the full spectrum of lifecycle services in both water engineering and wider water management. More importantly, they have a proven record of transferring innovation from other countries and sectors into the UK water industry - not least in their work on AMP7 Frameworks with 7 of the 12 UK water and sewerage companies.

Working within their Water Team on infrastructure and/or non-infrastructure projects, you will act as Lead Design Engineer and undertake and check the delivery of design solutions and associated outputs and the co-ordination with other disciplines. You will provide technical guidance, support and training to colleagues and assist, where practicable, in mentoring and the development of others. You will also be involved in business development activities including assisting with the preparation of capability statements and the submission of pre-qualification questionnaires, expressions of interest and tenders as well as building new and maintaining existing client relationships to win new and repeat work.

You will be involved in projects from conception to completion including supporting the Project Manager to clarify the project brief, agree deliverables, key milestones, project methodology, quality assurance and control strategy and establishing project checking and approval arrangements and managing internal project start-up meetings

The role required you to undertake significant elements of the detailed design and the checking of outputs as directed: eg calculations, drawings, sketches, reports etc to achieve the optimum solution for the project; assessing, documenting and communicating design changes to the Project Manager; being aware of work requirements and taking personal responsibility in delivering this to agreed time, cost and quality requirements; attending "close out meeting" and recommending/implementing improvements to policy, processes and project management methods.

To be successful in this role will be a Chartered Engineer status with a relevant institution (ICE or CIWEM) and have a comprehensive knowledge and experience of water and wastewater non-infrastructure design - including an understanding of the basics and the integration of multidisciplinary elements including process engineering and MEICA. You will also possess extensive experience in design, contract and tender preparation, tender assessment and contract administration
