Our national Geo Division are having a strong year and its time to recruit a further competent geotechnical designer into the team.

Geotechnics is one of our core disciplines at Hydrock. It is where we came from (both the CEO and MD have a ‘Geo background’) and it accounts for around 30% of our business today. Despite the current market conditions, the division has remained very busy throughout the year and with a growing order book, it’s time to invest in an additional geotechnical colleague. Where you sit in the country is not too important but you must be a talented designer and you’ll probably be stimulated by working on complex projects like SEGRO Logistics Park East Midlands Gateway (SLPEMG), a 700-acre development with planning consent for up to 6 million sq ft of logistics accommodation. It is a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP). You’ll be working on similar schemes when you join us.

Hydrock is an independently owned multidisciplinary consultancy, of circa 500 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 (note our recent Health and Wellbeing Leader of the Year award at the NCE100). We believe part of our success is looking after our people and our values help create a unique, dynamic, working environment. Our values include having fun, giving something back and our families coming first- check out all 10 here (and don’t miss the Challenge Day video on the same page!).

At the time of writing we are essentially working from home but there is an appetite to return to the collaborative and social environment that is a Hydrock office, when it is safe to do so (although we expect a blend of office and home working in the future). You can view all our locations here.

What skills and attributes are we looking for?

* As an engineer applying for this role you will need to be approaching senior grade and able to act as the lead engineer on projects. This opportunity is equally suitable for an existing senior or principal engineer, as we are flexible on grade.
* Geotechnical design experience including writing GDR and EWS (to CD622 and EC7).
* A strong ground modeller, with working knowledge of GEO5 and VDisp.
* Experienced and capable at scoping and delivering geotechnical ground investigations for a variety of purposes.
* Experienced in writing interpretive geotechnical reports.
* Experience in the specification and design of geotechnical structures (foundations, earthworks, ground improvement, slopes, embankments, cuttings, gravity structures, nails, anchors, imbedded walls etc).
* An experienced Geotechnical Engineer, Senior or Principal with substantial consultancy experience gained in the UK.
* BEng, BSc or higher qualification in Geotechnical or Civil Engineering and Chartered Member of a relevant institution.
* Self-motivated team player with good people skills.
* Integrity and credibility. People want to work with you (customers and colleagues).
* Believes in our ethos.

What you can expect in general

Inspired and motivated colleagues. A great team, office and employer (check out our 2019 wrap up here). 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 car allowance and private medical insurance is offered from Principal grade.

We have several team, office, regional and divisional events but ‘Challenge Day’ is when the whole company comes together for a paid day of fun! You can check out our most recent Challenge Day here!

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.

Hydrock is an Equal Opportunities Employer.
