Full Time
Mott MacDonald is a wholly independent, employee-owned company with 16,000 staff worldwide. We are continually winning commercial and industry awards, including being 'International Consultancy of the Year' (NCE/ACE). We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate, and take positive steps to create an inclusive culture.

Mott MacDonald have secured several high-profile rail projects within the UK for Morgan Sindall and are seeking an experienced Graduate Civil Engineer in our Sheffield Civils team to contribute to the delivery of these large multi-discipline schemes. The team also works closely with our York, Leeds and Altrincham offices to deliver a range of projects – including Signal Gantry designs and level crossing packages – to Network Rail and contractors such as Skanska and BAM Nuttall; the successful candidate will play a key role in completing designs, assessments and reports for such projects as well as collaborating with technicians and modellers to ensure the delivery of high quality engineering drawings.

As an experienced graduate, it is expected that the candidate will manage small design packages and provide a basic level of support and mentoring for less experienced engineers and apprentices. This is a long-term career appointment with the opportunity to develop a broad technical skillset across a range of civil engineering aspects through working on a variety of diverse projects. The opportunity to advance to a more senior position within Mott MacDonald is available to those candidates that have the ability and aptitude to work effectively on simultaneous projects and can demonstrate a commitment to technical and professional excellence.

Job Description
As a key member of the Civil Engineering team in Sheffield, the primary responsibility will be the design of civil engineering structures and elements and managing technicians to produce multi-disciplinary models and engineering drawings, predominantly for rail projects being delivered under the GRIP process. Most projects – including track reinstatement, level crossings, station upgrades, equipment compounds, etc – will require close working with other disciplines within Mott MacDonald to form an integrated multi-disciplinary team; thus, the ability to communicate and cooperate well with others is critical in this role. Similarly, on Design and Build projects in which we are engaged directly by the Main Contractor, there is a key requirement for positive collaboration with the Contractor project team to ensure effective construction delivery.

We are also completing further projects for Network Rail as part of the rail and bridges team, including a bridge assessment framework and some Maintenance Delivery Unit (MDU) upgrade schemes, which involve writing reports, assessment calculations (by hand and using structural analysis software), design checks and risk assessments.

Day to day activities will involve close collaboration with engineers and technicians from the Sheffield team but also the wider Mott MacDonald office network – in particular, our European Design Centre offices in Sofia and Prague.

This is a challenging role that will provide the successful candidate with the opportunity to advance their technical skills and progress within the company.

Candidate Specification
The candidate must be able to demonstrate strong technical skills, professional demeanor and attitude to taking initiative, enthusiasm, and eagerness to learn.

Essential academic, professional qualifications and experience:
• BEng/MEng in civil engineering
• At least two years’ experience in a design office environment, preferably rail
• Ability to complete civils design calculations, technical reports, specifications and design risk assessments under supervision
• Familiarity with civil drafting software
• Evidence of progress towards professional review
• Knowledge of CDM2015

Preferred Experience:
• Rail experience in A
