Our client is a leading civil and structural consultancy employing over three hundred staff internationally. Their UK office in London is still relatively new, it has already established an excellent reputation working on many of the capital’s largest and more complex projects alongside leading developers and contractors in the commercial, residential, and mixed-use sectors. They are looking for a structural engineer with the technical expertise and practical insight to play a leading role delivering construction engineering assignments on UK and international projects.       

Your Role: You will examine structural design and construction methodology and optimise the design, construction sequences and use of materials to improve buildability, project delivery, cost and to mitigate risk. There will be regular contact with clients, contractors and external consultants. You will oversee detail design work being produced by engineers and provide guidance and mentoring.         

The Company:  Employee owned and structured to benefit its employees and clients.

Your Background;  A degree qualified engineer,  chartered with the Institution of Civil Engineers( ICE) or the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE), or similar body.
