Highways & Drainage Design job in Nottingham

Your new company
Established in 2013, this organisation advises on the transport and highway aspects of development projects. Their ​staff have a track record of delivering projects of all types and in all sectors to clients across the UK. Their experience ranges from single dwellings to new towns and urban extensions. They have designed transport infrastructure for business parks, freight interchanges, retail parks, and leisure schemes.

Your new role
You will be leading projects that deliver the full package of on and off site works for residential and industrial developments of all scales. You will will be taking on preliminary designs created at the planning stage (whether internally or externally generated), and taking detailed designs through Technical Approval. Once Technical Approval is gained, tender and construction processes are important, and you will assist others in those processes.
Projects include detailed design of road and sewers (S38/S104), and off-site highway works (S278).
You will also be involved in earthworks design at all stages of projects, notably at the detailed design stage, but often at the preliminary and planning stages when challenging topography is involved.
Your team also assist the Transport Planning team with highway design on larger projects at the concept and planning stages where three-dimensional issues need to be addressed. Current examples include the design of a new motorway junction, bypass design. Your team will expand in the next few months and will double in the next 2-3 years so this is a great opportunity to be part of mentoring and developing new colleagues and growing a thriving business.

What you'll need to succeed
You will be a hands-on designer, leading projects that deliver the full package of on and off site works for residential and industrial developments of all scales. You will have a portfolio of projects of differing scale and complexity. The scale of projects you lead will vary depending on your experience. Ideally, you will be able to lead the biggest projects. You can demonstrate strong external facing skills and you must be able to be a Project Manager. You may be a Project Director depending on experience and scale of project. You must be able to demonstrate knowledge and experience of S38, S278, S104, earthworks, Civils3D, and Microdrainage.
Experience of leading a team and managing others is essential for you to succeed in this role.

What you'll get in return
You will be offered a generous package including car allowance and pension scheme. You will be joining a growing business where you will have the opportunity of influence and develop your team. You will be able to use your expertise and knowledge to the full as well as growing your skills. Being able to work on a range of projects will give you excellent job satisfaction and add variety to your career path.
