We are seeking a Senior Engineer with experience in the Highways Sector to be part of our established and experienced team working on exciting highway projects. Due to recent successes our teams are growing and we offer excellent opportunities for the right candidates seeking new and exciting opportunities.

A typical week would include:

* Project Management and provision of engineering expertise involving a range of multi-disciplinary infrastructure schemes primarily within the UK and occasionally elsewhere within the world, such as the Middle East

* Client focus, lead and attend design review meetings or progress meetings

* Technical input and design on Highway projects, including:

* Alignment design and modelling together with the integration into BIM

* Application of Highways Agency standards, Manual for Streets and Local Authority guidance in relation to highway engineering

* Management and procedures for aspects not covered by standard or Departures from Standards

* Preparation of specifications and development of Bills of Quantities

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

* A degree in Civil Engineering

* Chartered Status (MICE or equivalent) or equivalent demonstrable experience

* Be able to demonstrate clear and successful project management skills and technical competence in the field of highway engineering

* Demonstrate flexibility and willingness to push the boundaries of existing knowledge and the ability to take the lead outside of core discipline

* Proven track record of dealing with Clients and forging effective relationships in a professional and customer focused manner

* Experience of Contract Supervision using either NEC or ICE forms of contract

* Mentoring and guiding junior members of staff

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 a 37.5 hour working week, 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.
