Job Type: Permanent, Full Time 37.5 hrs a week - 25 days annual leave

Qualifications: Educated to HND or degree standard in Civil Engineering (or equivalent).

Duties: Working in a small and friendly office of transport planners and engineers, flexibility to carry out a range of tasks will be required. They will also have an eye for detail with good presentation and communication skills and the ability to work in a close-knit team.

The role will involve the design and delivery of highway and drainage schemes, from concept through to completion, including preparation of detailed engineering design submissions for Section 38/278 and Section 104 Agreement schemes, using AutoCAD, PDS and MicroDrainage across a range of major and minor highways projects. Knowledge and experience of contract documentation including conditions of contract, specifications, methods of measurement, bills of quantities and contract administration would be beneficial.

Candidates will need to demonstrate a working knowledge and experience in highways design and general civil engineering projects, with reference to appropriate design software (PDS / Autocad / MicroDrainage) and standards (DMRB / Highway Authority Design Guidance).

Report writing skills will be an additional benefit, in providing input toward Flood Risk Assessment / Drainage Strategy reports in support of planning applications.

The role will suit someone with an inquiring mind and a desire to learn new skills. We operate an informal structure, and successful employees are promoted on merit rather than when positions become available.

Applicants must be eligible to work in the UK holding relevant passports or work permits. References may be asked for from previous employers, universities or collages.

A full driving licence would also be favourable but not essential
