Location:

We have an opportunity for a Senior Structural Engineer to join our experienced Civil & Structural Engineering team in Elmbridge, on the outskirts of Gloucester, GL3 1JZ, a few minutes’ drive from J11 or J11A of the M5. This is a relatively small team of technically excellent people and something of a satellite office to our large team in Bristol, from where the national team is led.

Hydrock is an independently owned multi-disciplinary engineering consultancy of circa 500 staff, operating out of 16 offices in the UK. We are one of The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For and a champion of well-being (most recent winner of the Health and Wellbeing Leader of the Year award at the NCE100). We believe part of our success is looking after our people and our values help create a unique, dynamic, working environment. Feedback from our client listening programme and employee surveys indicates we are great to work with, whether providing a service to a client or rewarding employment to an employee!

The office has its own vibe and is very relaxed, inclusive and supportive. It has the feel of a brilliant small company yet has an exceptional portfolio of work with projects valuing anything from £1m to £50m. Recent examples include a new engineering building at UWE, UK Hydrographic Office, Keynsham Civic Centre, Aurora, Finzels Reach, Bristol (BREAM Outstanding), Infineum (Oxford Research Centre) and numerous schools (Education Funding Agency).

What will you be responsible for?

A combination of project delivery, managing and developing our people, looking after our clients and contributing to our brand and market position through delivering our values. Specific activities will include:

* Delivery of scheme and concept designs.
* Delivery of detailed design including full tender and construction packages.
* Preparation of calculation packages for submission to Building Control.
* Attendance at client, design and site meetings.
* Management and development of engineers and technicians.
* Liaison with statutory authorities, architects, the design team and contractors.
* Input to fee proposals, project bids and ITTs.
* Seeking and taking opportunities to develop your brand and ours at relevant events.

What skills and attributes are we looking for?

You’ll have a strong track record in project delivery and you’ll be developing the attributes we refer to above, around our people, our clients and building the business. Your profile might look like this:

* You will need to be a well-established senior engineer with significant consulting engineering experience in mainstream building structures projects.
* MEng/BEng in Civil or Structural Engineering.
* Chartered or Incorporated Engineer, with membership of the IStructE and/or ICE.
* Someone ambitious, who believes in our values and wishes to be part of Hydrock and our success.
* Developing marketing/ business development skills.
* Experience of running and managing projects (including delivery and commercial aspects).
* Self-motivated team player with good people skills.
* Experience of leading and managing a team.
* Strong communication, analysis, technical design and drawing skills.
* Ability to design through hand calculations.
* Understanding of UK BIM Framework requirements.

What you can expect in general

Inspired and motivated colleagues. A great team, office and employer (check out our 2019 wrap up here). A genuine opportunity to develop and to be recognised and rewarded.

The remuneration package will include a competitive salary and employer pension contribution, 25 days annual leave (with the option to buy/sell up to five days), healthy living bonus, well-being bonus and a wide variety of flexible benefits. There are also little things like a paid day off for good causes and free fresh fruit in every office.

We have several team, office, regional and divisional events but ‘Challenge Day’ is when the whole company comes together for a paid day of fun! You can check out our most recent Challenge Day here!

A career with Hydrock offers you the chance to achieve your potential in a strongly people-focused and values-led business that provides great opportunities for professional and personal development.

A place where we can all thrive

At Hydrock we value our diversity and place wellbeing and inclusion for all at the heart of our culture. Offering our people flexibility is an important factor in achieving these aims, so we encourage everyone talk to us about any ideas which enable you to balance your personal commitments with your responsibilities at work. Please let us know your current and/or desired flexible working arrangements in your covering letter, so we can discuss how this could work for you in this role.

We consider all applications on an individual’s alignment with the required qualifications, knowledge and experience outlined in this job advert, without regard to any of the protected characteristics. So that we can provide everyone with a fair selection, assessment and employment experience, please make us aware if you have any physical or neurodiverse condition for which appropriate reasonable adjustments can be made by us.

Next steps

* Once you have completed your application through our careers site, we aim to review and respond to you within one week.
* If shortlisted, a member of our Recruitment Team will call you for an initial pre-screen by phone (typically 30 minutes) to help us assess your motivations and interest in the position and Hydrock.
