Job Details

Your new company
Your new company is a family-orientated engineering consultancy with an established client base across a range of interesting sectors; commercial, residential, healthcare, industrial, education and waste. Based in Altrincham, they have around 50 employees across their building structures, highway structures, civils and geo-technical divisions with plans to continue growing over the next few years.

Your new role
Your new role will see you joining the company as a Principal Structural Engineer, making a significant contribution to the day-to-day preparation and delivery of technical design information. Contribution to the detailed design and overall project management of buildings made with steel, concrete, masonry and timber will be your main duty.

You will also maintain existing client relationships, built on high-quality solutions and contribute to bringing in new projects and helping to put bids together. Supervising and developing a wider team will also be expected.

What you'll need to succeed
In order to succeed you will need at a BEng (or equivalent) in Civil Engineering, and around 10 years of relevant industry experience. Detailed knowledge of structural design and detailing using relevant UK and European codes. Experience with structural design and analysis software Tekla Tedds will be essential, and a working knowledge of AutoCAD/Revit.

Though chartership with either the ICE or IStructE is not a requirement, it is desirable and in order to access the higher level of salary banding. For those engineers without the professional qualification, ongoing support and mentoring will be provided by directors in the office.

Excellent written and verbal communication skills are needed to aid in the internal and external management of staff and clients.

What you'll get in return
In return you will receive a highly competitive salary in the range of £50,000- £60,000 depending on your level of experience. You will also have access to a share scheme, which many of your colleagues have opted into, with the common goal of increasing turnover and in turn share price.

You will be part of a happy, sociable and overall family orientated company with employee well-being being prioritised. Regular social activities, hybrid working and schedule flexibility have all been designed to boost work-life balance. You will also see continued professional development with all courses funded, pension contributed too and private Medical Care.
