Graduate Structural Engineer – Hemel Hempstead
Comprising twenty staff, from Director to Graduate Engineer level, you will be joining a vibrant team that operates in the fast paced environment of the construction industry.
Do you have what it takes to succeed as a professional design consultant with us?
You must have strong analytical skills and bring an organised and accurate approach to the design work that you will be carrying out. It is also essential that you are comfortable working in a team environment where communication, both within the business but also with external stake holders, is absolutely key to our success.
You will be encouraged and supported to fulfil your potential; if you flourish under pressure you will benefit from rapid progression within the team. We believe that if you have the skills, we will give you the responsibility and the rewards.
Whilst your work in the structural design team is by its nature predominantly office based, we will commit to enabling you to visit our live construction sites as often as possible where you will be able to witness your design work taking shape in the real world. You will also attend team meetings and workshops where you will benefit from time spent face to face with clients, architects and other consultants that you will be working closely with on our variety of interesting design projects.
