The Role

You will play a key part in the core engineering function of multiple projects, playing the ‘technical mediator’ between the Construction team, the Client and the Design sub-contractor. You will play the part of ‘Engineering guru’, dealing in the first instance with pre-construction design alterations up to GRIP Stage 4 and then as the project takes off buildability alterations throughout.

This is a role for a ‘communicator’ as you will need to build relationships with key stakeholders both internally and externally. This is a team culture where Commercial functions mix with Engineering functions and you will work closely with the claims team to investigate the technical (Engineering) legitimacy of the claim (leave the legal stuff to the experts!)

Your responsibility will be the Civil Engineering aspect of multi-disciplinary projects, and you will play a key role in appointing and managing Sub Contractor design consultancy’s. When required you will act as CRE for Design working in partnership with the CRE for Construction.

Just when you thought this role couldn’t offer any more variety...

You will also provide key expertise and technical input into the numerous tender submissions, which will allow you to “win, design and deliver” projects!


If you are a Chartered Civil Engineer (or on your way to it!) and have designed Civil Engineering projects within the Rail sector I want to hear from you!

If you have some site experience to go with it – bonus!

Salary & Package

This role is offering a competitive salary which is dependent on experience, starting at £45,000 per annum. There is also market leading package including a 10% matched contribution pension! Plenty of overtime for those who like to top up their earnings and 26 days holiday.
