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.

Our Development Infrastructure team specialises in providing sustainable development infrastructure solutions from planning, through to full implementation. We are seeking to recruit a Senior Technician to join our team in Capital Quarter, Cardiff.

The Development Infrastructure team specialises in providing high level advice to mainly private sector clients on planning and design issues relating to Highways, Public Realm, Signal Design, Sewerage, SUDS, Building Drainage, Earthworks, Flood Protection, Water / Waste Water and Utilities Coordination/Diversion on Residential, Retail, Industrial and Commercial Developments both in the UK and overseas.

The team also works closely with other WSP disciplines on high profile major multi-disciplinary projects.

All staff are encouraged and assisted to progress their training towards ICE or CIWEM Incorporated or Chartered status, with internal and external training opportunities provided.

A typical week would include:

• Working within the team to produce sketches, designs and drawings to accompany planning applications and construction
• Ensuring quality management systems are complied with on a project basis
• Being active on a number of projects and client accounts at any given time.

About You

* The ability to work with more senior and junior staff in producing designs and document packages

* Good written and spoken communication skills and be able to work as part of a team

* A background including some water industry or utility experience (desirable)

* The ability to produce masterplans, site appraisals, and construction drawings

* Good knowledge of document control management and BIM protocols

* Additional useful knowledge includes DMRB, Manual for Streets , Local Authority Design Guides, Sewers for Adoption and National Planning Policy frameworks

About Us

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 WiL (Women in Leadership) 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.

A little about us:

Together, our people make up one of the world's leading engineering professional services consulting firms. We’re dedicated to the communities where we live and work in the UK and propelled by international brainpower. Staying curious is what drives us. Looking at challenges from fresh angles helps us deliver future-ready solutions that break paradigms.

With around 7,900 talented people in 70+ offices across the UK, and 43,000 around the world, we engineer projects that will help societies grow for lifetimes to come.
