Part-Time, Home-Based Chartered Structural Engineer,

Part-Time, Home-Based Chartered Structural Engineer We are a small structural and civil consultancy practice established over 40 years ago. We need one or two more chartered structural engineers based in certain areas of London and the South-East to handle jobs local to them on a self-employed, sub-consultant basis but covered by our professional indemnity and public liability insurance. You would be working from your own home and can choose the hours you work and how many jobs you take on, typically two or three days a week. The work involves mainly inspections and reports on building defects and structural design of alterations and extensions, both domestic and commercial. It would suit a person who doesn't want to go back to commuting or has taken early retirement but wishes to keep their brain active! Must be chartered and able to write good English. We pay around £250 for a typical inspection and report, and £35 per hour for design work. No formal contract is involved. All new enquiries and invoicing are handled at head office, so you would not need to get involved in red tape. We would expect you to have a computer, printer, 8m tape, 600mm spirit level, digital camera etc. Autocad is preferable but not essential.
