MLM Group is a successful multi-disciplinary engineering consultancy, working on a diverse range of interesting and challenging projects. Our purpose is to shape a better built and natural environment for people to live, learn, work and play. We have ambitious growth plans as part of our 2025 vision and are now expanding our rail team. Our rail team has a respected reputation in the industry, which has developed as a result of our success in delivering for our clients.

We are currently recruiting for either an Associate Director or Technical Director to join our busy Rail team, ideally at our Ashford, Ipswich or London offices. For exceptional candidates, other locations including Birmingham, Bristol, Cambridge, Chelmsford and Norwich will be considered.
The main purpose of the role is to provide support to the directors in the leadership and operation of the rail team. This will be achieved through shaping strategy, effective team leadership and the provision of sound technical and commercial advice. You will be confident undertaking business development activity, client management and be commercially astute. There is potential for the right candidate to develop into a director role.
You will also have excellent communication skills, both written and verbal, and the ability to develop relationships based on your visible technical and project delivery ability. Taking ownership and accountability for the work of others is an essential part of the role. You will be professionally qualified, have good numerical and verbal/written communication skills, and demonstrable experience and expertise in the operation of a consultancy environment in the rail or civils sector. A large proportion of your experience will have been gained within UK consultancies.
