Geotechnical Engineer/Senior Geotechnical Engineer
Main Purpose of the Job
We are looking for a Geotechnical Engineer/Senior Geotechnical Engineer to join our team of geo-specialists in Exeter. Duties will include general site investigation-related work and geotechnical design activities. A primary interest in the geotechnical field is required, although the team offers integrated geotechnical and geoenvironmental services so some capability and interest in the latter is important.
The role would be largely office-based in Exeter but would require some travelling within the UK and occasional short duration stays away. Much of the Exeter office project work is water industry based, although the Exeter geo. team also progresses other land development project work and some geoenvironmental & contaminated land-based commissions.
Main Duties and Responsibilities;
Duties will include general site investigation-related work, for example desk studies, ground investigation (GI) scheduling, GI contract overseeing, occasional GI fieldwork, post GI data assessment and report preparation. The successful applicant will also work on civil/structural/geotechnical design projects and an aptitude towards soil mechanics and engineering design is important. Typical design activities undertaken by the team include shallow foundations and settlement assessment, preparation of piling and ground improvement specifications and the design of earth retaining structures, trenchless installations and small diameter tunnelling. Team members work closely with our in-house civil, structural and environmental colleagues.
· A Degree in (typically) geotechnical engineering or engineering geology and/or a post graduate qualification in geotechnical engineering or engineering geology.
· A Minimum of 5 years
· Familiarity with common geotechnical design software
· Excellent written and spoken English and a valid UK driving license.
