Job Description

With offices throughout the UK, SNC-Lavalin has an extensive history of supporting clients in the UK and overseas. With over 50,000 employees globally and a turnover of £5bn, following the acquisition of WS Atkins in July 2017, we are now one of the largest Engineering firms in the world.

We are now looking to add a Project Manager to our growing Certification (Engineering Change) team. This is an ideal opportunity for individuals wishing to develop an existing career, in an organisation that will provide wide-ranging opportunities across all rail systems.

Our Rail & Transit Assurance team is a leader in the provision of assurance services (certification, safety, compliance) to the rail industry and is seeking high calibre individuals to enhance this service area. Our Certification team also offer independent assessment and certification services to the rail industry through SNC-Lavalin Rail & Transit Verification Limited

The rail industry has an increasing number of ongoing projects for modified rolling stock and many of these projects implement comprehensive assurance processes to achieve regulatory authorisation, or to gain the approval of asset owners and operators.

The assurance role offers the opportunity of working in a wide variety of technical areas. Our engineers manage the interface between clients and specialist engineers, monitoring progress against the overall project goals whilst keeping a close eye on the technical detail. Such engineers are in high demand, have excellent career prospects, and enjoy a high variety of work.

SNC-Lavalin requires a flexible and adaptable person who is keen to develop professionally. The successful candidate will lead the delivery of assurance assignments, including the provision of technical support and strategic guidance to clients, and management of the project budget and timescales.

Duties and Responsibilities

To successfully deliver this role you will be expected to:

  • Understand clients’ requirements and how they fit into the wider assurance regime
  • Manage the delivery of assignments from start to finish
  • Manage the expectations of clients and other affected parties
  • Manage the interface with specialist engineering teams
  • Plan, monitor and report progress in client meetings and through formal documents
  • Ensure that all work is undertaken in accordance with SNC-Lavalin’s procedures.


To be considered for the role, you will ideally be a degree qualified engineer with an eye for technical detail whilst balancing that with the context of much wider project goals.

You will have a methodical and proactive approach to assignment planning and delivery and be able to critically assess projects and client enquiries, identifying possible solutions which are both effective and achievable.

Knowledge of Rolling Stock is greatly advantageous but we will be open to consider engineers who have an ability to assess risk and effectively manager projects within a highly regulated industry.

Why SNC-Lavalin?

We offer a professional but nurturing environment for you to better develop in your career whilst exposing you to a wide variety of transport projects. We also offer competitive salaries, enhanced pension contributions, 33 days annual leave (including Bank Holidays), private medical cashback reimbursement schemes, gym membership subsidies, flexible working hours and a host of other benefits supporting a range of lifestyles.

Closing date for applications is 2nd April 2018
