You will develop a well-rounded knowledge of all these activities in a multidisciplinary environment.

  • hold a degree, or Masters, in Civil Engineering or related discipline (minimum 2:1).
  • be working towards chartered status from an appropriate institution (C.Eng or C.WEM). 
  • have a minimum of three years industry experience (assistant engineer or engineer grade).
  • demonstrate knowledge and experience of standard hydraulic modelling packages. 
  • demonstrate an understanding of economic appraisals (MCM, B£ST etc). 
  • have experience in optioneering and schematic design.
  • display excellent interpersonal skills. 
  • be an excellent written and verbal communicator.
  • Applicants with a background in hydraulic modelling (Innovyze ICM, Flood Modeller Pro, TUFLOW, HEC-RAS or SRH2D) and/or economic assessments will be preferred. An understanding of Natural Flood Management and Sustainable Drainage techniques is also desirable.
What’s in it for you?     
Sweco are striving to address society’s challenges. As part of the Flooding and Water Management team you will be deploying sustainable techniques to make people and places safer and more resilient to flood risk and climate change.
