Temporary Works Design Engineer

RC Frame And Groundwork Contractor

 

About the Company

This business is one of my top clients. Having worked with them for the past 10+ years I have seen them develop in both size and capability over this time. They now currently turnover above £100 million per annum, building concrete frame and groundwork packages ranging in value up to £20 million each for a variety of residential contractors and developers throughout London and the surrounding Northern Home Counties. They have a very modern edge to the business while maintaining traditional roots and are still privately owned by the original MD (who is a true gent).

On a personal note, I believe this company is one of the best not only for the projects they help complete but also because of the environment they create for the people who work there. They go that extra mile to not only to retain their staff but to truly keep them happy to be with the business. Small things have been added to the office like a gym that people have access to all day with extra half an hour breaks given three times a week for anyone who wants to use it. They have a treatments room where massages and cosmetic treatments are available to everyone on Fridays free of charge, all you have to do is book in. With plans in place for a roof top garden and BBQ area, I’d want to work here myself if I had the relevant experience in this role! They really are a great company to work for to gain great project experience, to develop capability in modern construction techniques and to be part of the values they believe in.

About the Opportunity

Due to ongoing company growth, our client is looking to expand their in-house temporary works team on-site and is therefore recruiting permanently for an engineer to provide design engineering services within the Temporary Works Design Team. Reporting directly to the Principle Designer, you will be competent in the production of temporary works within the RC frame, groundwork, substructure and basement construction sectors and will represent the company at meetings with clients, other professionals and suppliers.

About the Benefits and Rewards

For this permanent position, my client is targeting construction professionals looking to earn anywhere from £60,000 to £80,000 per annum however there may be flexibility on this as the specific salary will depend on experience and suitability. Furthermore, there will be a generous package on offer in addition to the usual benefits associated with a large successful company.

About the Requirements

In order to be considered for this opportunity, you should hold suitable tertiary qualifications and be accredited by a professional body or working towards a full chartership. Additionally, you will have a vast working knowledge of the current ‘Euro’ code design standards, hold a minimum of 6 years post-graduate experience in the design of temporary works within the groundwork & concrete frame sector, and have good knowledge of the use of AutoCAD / 3D Modelling. Chartered candidates would be preferable but would consider the strong experience in lieu of chartered status.
