Is it time to use your experience and qualifications at the next level? If so, we have the perfect opportunity for you to make your mark in a leading organisation.

Our client provides water and sewerage services across the south west of England. Our engineering and construction business is responsible for designing and building the infrastructure for our services, including sewage treatment works, pumping stations and reservoirs. As a further step in our growth, we are developing our in-house design team, and this is a great opportunity to join our growing professional team.

As Senior Engineer, you will lead and drive design activities for a number of high-value, complex sewerage infrastructure projects. Your in-depth experience will enable you to work effectively alongside our in-house contracting partners to produce innovative, compliant and cost-effective design solutions.

Day-to-day you will be part of a team of infrastructure design professionals, working closely with other engineering disciplines and support services, meeting the quality, financial and programme requirements of the project delivery team.

A key part of your role will be to produce the options, outline and detailed design deliverables associated with gravity and pressurised sewerage systems to resolve flooding and improve the environment, including: technical and commercial reports, calculations, technical specifications and engineering drawings in line with company and industry technical standards. You will also assist in the design governance procedure for the team, including checking documentation and drawings.

Alongside your technical activities, you will be proactive in mentoring and supporting the technical development of team members to ensure continuity of team skills.

This experience and your excellent interpersonal and communication skills will allow you to develop and maintain good working relationships with key stakeholders to facilitate efficient delivery of your projects. You will be based at our head office but will also be working at a range of our other sites and offices, so you need to be able to travel.
