Principal Civil Engineer (Water Non-Infra)
Bristol, England, United Kingdom

My client is currently looking for a talented and motivated Principal Civil Engineer to join their design team in Bristol as part of a multi-disciplinary department providing detailed designs for water related projects in the UK. This role can be worked flexibly with a minimum of 3 days per week in the office and the option of adjusted start and finish times.

They draw upon a combined knowledge base of 22,000 experts across Northern Europe. More technologies, more skills, and more inventive solutions mean 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.

They'll work with you to develop your technical expertise so that you can become a real Difference Maker and develop sustainable and innovative solutions to address these issues. You'll join a growing team of Engineers working together towards the best client outcomes.

They are looking for individuals who can challenge conventional thinking and work collaboratively to meet a wide range of business, environment and regulatory challenges for these clients. The role offers an opportunity for successful candidates to broaden and diversify their expertise.

What does the role involve?

Working within their water team on 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 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; establishing project checking and approval arrangements and managing internal project start-up meetings; undertaking 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.

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.

What we're looking for from you:
* Chartered Engineer status or working towards with a relevant institution eg ICE or CIWEM.
* Strong interpersonal/team working skills, with a good working relationship with all levels of the organisation, clients and contractors together with the ability to communicate in a fluent and positive manner both verbally and written.
* 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.
* Extensive experience in design, contract and tender preparation, tender assessment and contract administration.

* Life assurance
* 25 days holiday (option to buy 5 more)
* Electric vehicle scheme
* Salary reviews/bonuses
* Flexwork policy

If you believe you have the skill set required, are keen to join a business with genuine opportunities for career progression, then I'd love to hear from you.
