Opportunity for a Civil Infrastructure Engineer to join our experienced team in Birmingham, B3 2HP (based in a brand-new office on Edmund Street). We have established a well-regarded team over the last five years, contributing our engineering design to projects across the region and we are now ready to further expand our service from the city centre, working even more closely with our centrally located clients.
Hydrock is an independently owned consultancy, of over 450 staff, operating out of 16 offices. It is one of The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For and a champion of well-being. You can check out our values here. We are currently growing at 12% per annum. We believe part of our success is looking after our people and our values help create a unique, dynamic, working environment.
Infrastructure is a national division with a national client base and we have recently hired a Technical Director in Birmingham to take the division to a new level in the region. Locally, you will have over 30 colleagues, primarily Structural and Building Services, led by very well established and respected Technical Directors, together with developing Geo and Infrastructure teams. It is a very exciting time to join our tremendously successful and growing company.
Overview of the role
You will be responsible for delivering technical support to the design of civil infrastructure projects. Working as part of a team within a growing multi-disciplinary consultancy, and operating across a matrix of projects, you will undertake scheme development, preliminary and detailed designs and project coordination.
You will be expected to work in a design office environment but could also play an active role in design and site meetings, site inspections and progress reporting. Good communication and effective liaison with clients, architects, contractors and regulatory/statutory authorities are key attributes.
The attributes we expect you to bring to the role and company:
* MEng, BEng, HND or similar technical qualification/experience
* Working knowledge of Section 104, 278 and 38 adoption procedures
* Excellent analysis and technical design skills in AutoCAD, WinDES and PDS (or equivalent design software such as Civils 3D or MXROAD).
* Strong written and verbal communicator
* Experience working with developers
* Knowledge of UK planning procedures and experience of providing technical support to secure planning approval.
* Experience of securing technical approvals from highway and drainage authorities.
* Self-motivated team player with good people skills.
What can you expect?
Inspired and motivated colleagues. A good team, office and employer. A genuine opportunity to create and to be recognised and rewarded.
The remuneration package will include a competitive salary and employer pension contribution, 25 days annual leave (with the option to buy/sell up to five days), well-being bonus and a wide variety of flexible benefits. There are also little things like a paid day off for good causes and free fresh fruit in every office.
A career with Hydrock offers you the chance to achieve your potential in a strongly people-focused and values-led business that provides great opportunities for professional and personal development.
