Job Description

Due to continued expansion we are looking for a Geo-environmental Engineer with a minimum of 3 years post qualification experience. The successful candidate will have a strong knowledge of the geotechnical aspects of the work including foundation design and slope stability. Further experience in environmental assessment to determine the risks and liabilities associated with contamination for developers and investors is a must.

The position provides an ideal opportunity for an ambitious, energetic and capable individual who is confident in communicating effectively with colleagues, multi-disciplinary teams, contractors and regulatory authorities and able to demonstrate competency in decision making during site works. Working independently or as part of a project team, delivering high quality work and achieving client-led deadlines, you will have a strong understanding of site investigation techniques (familiar with most in situ testing methods, trial pitting, dynamic sampling, cable percussive drilling, auger drilling, conventional rotary), geotechnical knowledge including foundation design and slope stability, mining investigations, contaminated land and planning.

You will also be familiar with scheduling laboratory testing (chemical and geotechnical) and have the ability to interpret results, write factual reports, conduct walkovers and perform a variety of site investigation fieldwork tasks. Competency in the logging of soils to EN ISO 14688 and up-to-date environmental guidance such as BS10175 is essential.

The role will involve both site and office based tasks and will include providing support to other regional projects across the business as required. This role requires a full UK driving licence.
