Acoustic Consultant

Location- West Midlands

I am working with one of the most dynamic, multidisciplinary environmental consultancy, servicing a wide range of clients in the oil, gas, property and manufacturing sectors. We have offices across Britain, Ireland, Western and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

The team are currently working on a number of exciting projects and providing support to the rail and renewable sector, power and energy, and mixed use developments.

The Role

You will involve yourself assisting with data collection (noise and vibration surveys), processing and data analysis, computational noise modelling (SoundPlan, CadnaA and CATT), project management, business development and preparation of reports and tenders connected with noise and vibration assessments. You will work on a wide range of projects, taking responsibility for specific aspects of projects and leading and undertaking contract administration on small to medium sized projects.

You will work on a wide range of projects involving travel around the UK and potentially overseas. The work will also involve some night-time and weekend tasks (for which time off in lieu would be accrued).

You must be prepared to travel to site regularly to undertake site surveys and supervise works. As such a full driving licence is essential.

You will be enthusiastic, willing to take part in a variety of projects and areas of work, and keen to further your career and expertise in a supportive multi-disciplinary practice. You will also need to be:

  • Comfortable with using Excel to undertake data processing tasks
  • Numerate, as noise and vibration work will require regular use of mathematical formulae
  • Computer literate and be able to quickly adapt to using bespoke software packages
  • Experience with both building and environmental acoustics would be desirable
  • Experience of using different sound level meters
  • Experience with vibration monitoring would be beneficial
  • Computer modelling experience (preferably with CadnaA, CATT or SoundPlan)

Person specification

  • AMIOA or TIOA essential, preferably working towards corporate membership (MIOA)
  • Degree in Acoustics or related subject
  • Good IT and organisation skills are essential
  • Ability to communicate with peers, colleagues, clients and general public.
  • Competent technical report writing skills
  • Ability to operate independently
