Part time, home-based chartered structural/civil engineer
Part-time, home-based chartered structural or civil engineer required to assist with inspections and reports on structural defects and small-scale structural design.
We are a small structural and civil consultancy practice established over 30 years ago. We need one or two chartered 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. It would suit engineers who have taken early retirement but who wish to keep their hand in and earn a little pocket money, without all the hassle of taking enquiries, quoting for jobs and issuing and chasing fees, as all this is done from Head Office. Our main needs currently are in Greater London, East Kent, South Essex and West Sussex.
You would be working from your own home and can choose the hours you work and how many jobs you take on. The work involves mainly inspections and reports on building defects and structural design of alterations and extensions, both domestic and commercial. We pay around £250 for a typical inspection and report. No formal contract is involved. We pay at the end of each month.
We can only consider engineers who are chartered, can write good English, do basic structural calculations and have their own transport.
