Our Client is a specialist energy and environmental consultancy business providing technical, strategic, planning and environmental advice to companies and organisations operating within the energy sector.

This role will involve a strong level of providing support on all projects which have a civil / structural element from Construction Management Plans, Due Diligence Reports and Access and Foundations Conceptual Designs. The successful candidate will report to the Operations Manager and will need to have a positive and flexible approach with the confidence and experience sufficient to work on projects without direct technical supervision as you will be the only Civil/Structural engineer within the Company.

  • Support other members of the team as required providing one-to-one training in aspects in which they have experience.
  • Identify risks within projects, communicating regularly with the rest of the project team.
  • Manage the preparation of large proposals, including commercial aspects, involving others as required.
  • Manage own time and deliver multiple or large complex projects on time/budget.


The successful applicant should be experienced in your field and have practical experience from energy or environmental projects. You should also be capable of taking a leading role within the team and providing mentoring and development support where required.
An excellent client focus is critical, and you should be able to interpret client requirements and deliver complex projects to their satisfaction. This would include engaging proactively with clients to deliver new business opportunities as well as maintaining current relationships, undertaking and managing project work, writing and reviewing reports and managing, supporting and guiding other team members.
