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.

Join a dynamic and growing team of staff who love to work in rivers. We have a large portfolio of river management and scour management projects - working with natural processes to protect important infrastructure and reduce flood risk. You’ll provide technical support and leadership to project teams delivering schemes across the UK and occasionally abroad – ranging from small but locally important scour project to large multidisciplinary projects.

The role provides fantastic opportunities for professional development for a chartered or near chartered engineer to work with our highly experienced team.

Working directly with our senior team, you will provide leadership and support to junior staff undertaking a wide range of schemes across the project cycle

A typical week would include:

* Leading the management of local scour and flood management schemes

* Supporting our discipline in larger projects - from feasibility stage through to construction support

* Design of hard and soft riverine structures including coordination of geotechnical, environmental and permitting teams

* Responding quickly and positively to support emergency works, where historic structures are at a high risk of failure.

* Supporting mentoring, training and research & development programmes

* Working on a mixture of UK and overseas bids and projects

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

* Gained or near Chartered Civil Engineer status with experience in the delivery of project relating to flood risk or scour design.

* Experience in design in the river environment, with a passion for balancing hard and soft techniques to achieve safe and sustainable schemes.

* Knowledge of the UK flood management industry, including environmental permitting and engagement with the Environment Agency, Network Rail and Highways England.

What if we can?

What if we can have work-life balance? What if we can be rewarded in ways that support our individual needs? What if we can be accepted for who we are? Here at WSP – we can!

WSP recognizes that work is only one part of our lives and making time for the other things in our life is important – be that our families, our friends or ourselves. So, if working from home, working part-time or having flexible start and finish time will help with this let us know as part of your application.

As well as rewarding you with competitive pay, WSP offers standard benefits including 25 days annual leave, pension schemes, life assurance, personal accident cover and paid professional subscriptions, and some not so standard benefits as part of our flexible benefits scheme – so if you would like to hop on a new bike (cycle to work scheme) or thrill the family with your Lego building skills (Discount at Legoland Windsor) – WSP can help!

Be you, be happy - we strive to have a friendly and inclusive culture which respects and maximizes the contribution individuals can bring to WSP. We recognise the benefits that people with varying backgrounds and experiences can bring. Our VIBE (LGBT + employee network) and PLEDGE (Promoting Leadership, Encouraging Diversity & Gender Equality) networks work with the business to help ensure we continue to promote the right environment to enable LGBT+ and female employees to reach their full potential, and to ensure we continue to promote equality, inclusivity and diversity for everyone.

Here at WSP we positively encourage applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates regardless of sex, race, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, religion or belief, marital status, pregnancy or maternity/paternity. We will interview all disabled applicants who meet the essential criteria.

In addition we support our people to achieve their personal health and well-being goals through our Thrive programme.
