Lithos Consulting Limited
Location: Yorkshire
Job type: Permanent
Contact: Steve James
Sector: Environmental
Category: Environmental Jobs

Lithos Consulting is a team of specialist Geoenvironmental Consultants operating mainly in Yorkshire and across the North of England.  Our core clients include residential and commercial developers, contractors, landowners, local authorities and banks.

We are looking for an experienced Geoenvironmental Engineer to join the Remediation & Construction Support division of our successful, dynamic and expanding consultancy team.

With excellent opportunities for career progression, the ideal candidate will have a relevant first degree, two to five year’s relevant experience, and be working towards Chartered status.  Candidates must be technically strong, self-motivated and highly organised, with commercial awareness and good communication skills.


The successful candidate will be primarily involved in the supervision of remediation and earthworks projects, acting as a full-time Resident Engineer where required. However, it is expected that opportunities will arise to work in other areas, most notably site investigation.

The ideal candidate will have experience in the following fields:

  • Supervision of remediation, earthworks and/or mine stabilisation projects
  • In-situ geotechnical testing (primarily plate load & CBR tests)
  • Geotechnical analysis (bearing capacity, slope stability, working platform design etc)
  • Inspection of gas protection measures, particularly for new residential developments
  • Soil cover validation & stockpile sampling
  • Collection of surface water samples, including use of field monitoring equipment
  • Scheduling & interpretation of geotechnical & chemical laboratory testing
  • Report writing & reviewing (Geoenvironmental Appraisals, Remediation Strategies & Verification Reports)

The candidate will be comfortable dealing with clients and contractors, with the support of senior staff.  The candidate should have strong IT skills, including the use of Microsoft Excel, Word & Outlook, and AutoCAD.

Given the nature of our work a full driving licence is essential.


We operate from modern purpose-built offices in a rural location on the edge of Wetherby, with easy access to the A1 (M).  We provide a competitive salary with additional benefits including: a bonus scheme; group personal pension; minimum 21 days’ holiday (plus any non-public holidays over the Christmas period); death in service; professional subscription; and childcare vouchers.  We also offer an extensive training programme (in-house & external) and excellent prospects for career progression.
