As part of the engineering geology team, you will assist in the management and delivery of geotechnical projects whilst also supporting the broader engineering geology resource team. You’ll be involved in project management duties such as undertaking quality and financial management (including budgeting and cost control) and liaise with both internal and external clients as well as assist with guiding and mentoring Graduate Engineers within the team. Working within a dynamic team there are opportunities to be involved in technical specialist areas such as seismic design, geomorphological mapping and GIS. In addition to this, due to the international nature of our work there may be opportunities for you to work on overseas projects which are sometimes undertaken in remote areas requiring self-sufficiency and personal robustness.
Key responsibilities will involve the following:
As an Engineering Geology professional within the UK ground engineering market, you are able to demonstrate your geotechnical and ground engineering expertise including previous experience in ground investigation procurement, supervision and interpretation as well as geotechnical design. You are familiar with Eurocode-7 (EC7) and understand the UK ground engineering sectors contract conditions and specifications. Throughout your Consultancy background, you have gained strong interpersonal skills and are comfortable liaising with Clients, collaborating and communicating effectively with all levels of staff and stakeholders. Additionally, you are used to working within a team environment and delivering various medium-large projects (ideally multidisciplinary) within ground engineering.
You will also be able to demonstrate the following:
Due to the nature of our work and projects, you will be willing to travel nationally to visit various clients and it is essential that you hold a driving license in order to travel to remote sites when required. If you are willing to travel for overseas projects, this will be advantageous. Although not essential, it would be beneficial if you have previous experience working in the hydropower sector, on contaminated land projects and with geomorphological or geological mapping and GIS experience.
Our Foundations and Geotechnics team manages and delivers designs for major below ground civil projects and is recognised as authoritative and cutting edge. We specialise in all aspects of foundations, geotechnics and tunnelling, and contribute to some of the largest and most demanding structures in the world. We provide expertise in value engineering, geotechnical advice, geotechnical information management, site investigation, rock engineering, slope engineering, coastal engineering and environmental geotechnics. Supporting our civil design capability, we have specialist engineering geology, numerical modelling, seismic and hydrogeology expertise within the division and our project portfolio include Crossrail, Thames Tideway, Wembley, Victoria Station Upgrade, HS2 Phase 1 and Phase 2b, to name a few.
As a result of a growth in major and varied project work we are looking to recruit a Senior (Chartered) Engineering Geologist to provide ground engineering input at all project stages from feasibility studies, through to design to construction supervision. The role can be based from one of our Croydon, Birmingham, Reading or Bristol offices. We are also open to discussing full time or part time options with candidates.
