About the Role:
At WSP, there’s nothing we love more than pushing boundaries. Harnessing innovation and sharing insights across our diverse, international team to create a tomorrow’s world that's cleaner, greener and safer. Join us and you’ll be part of an organisation that takes pride in its people and purpose: creating long-lasting solutions to meet the needs of generations to come.
You will be joining an established and successful team working direct on a number of design and build contracts delivering a combination of new roads and road improvement schemes for Highways England, local authorities and developers.
Our Tewkesbury is a small and friendly office (around 40 staff) many of which have been with WSP for 10 years+ and are technical specialists in their own right. Development and mentoring of our junior staff is important to us and you would be expected to support us in our continued success in this area..
We are looking for rounded individuals responsible for planning and managing the delivery of projects, including adequacy of design, compliance with standards and legislation, resource time, cost and quality.
A typical week would include:
* Use of modelling and engineering related packages such as MX and AutoCAD Civil3D,
* Drainage design (surface water) including use of Microdrainage Software package
* Highways and Pavement design to UK DMRB standards
* The right candidate shall be able to take on significant elements of design, either working on their own initiative, with minimal supervision or by taking a lead role working within multi-discipline project teams. Able to obtain and analyse information and report on findings.
We'd love to hear from you if you have:
* A degree in Civil Engineering
* Incorporated or Chartered Status (AMICE/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
* A full, clean driver’s license
* The ability to demonstrate flexibility and willingness to push the boundaries of existing knowledge and the ability to take the lead outside of core discipline
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.
