About the Role

As one of the world’s leading engineering, professional services and technical consultancy firms, at WSP, we’re passionate about the big questions. And big answers, naturally. For us that’s all about reaching beyond the expected to do work that’ll make a profound impact felt long into the future.

We are seeking an Engineer to join our growing Development Infrastructure (DI) team in Bristol.

The Team specialises in providing advice, planning support and sustainable development infrastructure solutions mainly for private sector clients on issues relating to highways, public realm, sewerage, SUDS, building drainage, flood protection and utilities coordination/ diversion for residential, retail, industrial and commercial developments both in the UK and overseas. The team also works closely with other WSP disciplines across a wide range of sectors and projects involving different disciplines.

All staff are encouraged and assisted to progress their training and personal development towards TMICE, ICE Incorporated or Chartered status (whichever is most appropriate) with internal and external training opportunities provided.

A typical include week would include:

* Your principal role will be as a designer working within the team to produce designs and drawings to accompany planning applications and for construction. You can expect an active involvement and to be contributing to a number of work sectors, projects and client accounts at any given time. You will report to a Principal Engineer or Associate.

* You will be supported by a team of experienced technical staff of various grades, to whom you will be expected to provide guidance and support, as and where appropriate.

* The position will also involve client and design team liaison, and depending upon your experience, assisting in the preparation of fee proposals, day-to-day project management, financial control of projects and business development activities.

* You will be responsible for ensuring that projects you are involved are delivered to budget, programme and technical standards and meet QA, CDM and HSE requirements.

About You

We'd love to hear from you if you have:

* A degree in Civil Engineering and a number of year’s post-graduate experience, and ideally be working towards IEng or CEng status or equivalent (e.g. MCIWEM). For the Senior position, the number of years post-graduate experience will be substantial (circa 8 years minimum) and shall include commercial experience and responsibility, and a broad knowledge and experience of the private sector development industry.

* The ability to demonstrate a sound knowledge and experience of highway engineering design (both S38 and S278) and S104 drainage design and at least an awareness of the legal, planning and technical consent processes, and adoption and contract procedures for the provision of sewers, SUDS, and highways in new developments and regeneration projects.

* Other beneficial skills include residential design (private and adoptable), hydraulics and hydrology, flood risk assessment and management, utility coordination and diversions, and knowledge of the national Planning Policy Framework and associated technical guidance.

* You should have and be actively maintaining knowledge of current and emerging technical and planning guidance.

*

You will be able to prepare highway and drainage designs, both private and adoptable, applying the principles, design codes and standards set out in the SuDS Manual, Sewers for Adoption, DMRB, Manual for Streets anLocal Authority Design Guides.

*

Working knowledge of at least one of the following software packages; AutoCAD, Microdrainage, PDS, and Civils 3D.

*

Ability to work with more senior and junior staff in producing designs is essential. You will need to have good written and spoken communication skills and be able to work as part of a team.

*

Probably from a Consultancy or Development background with a bias towards private sector work. Ability to recognise own limitations, exercise judgement and seek clarity of instructions, check own work before submitting for approval, and agree and meet timescales for items of work
