For 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. The team capability is civils/structures biased and in addition, the delivery of multi-disciplinary rail projects is led by the team. Typical projects involve bridges, stations, buildings, lineside structures, culverts, drainage, car parks, depots and temporary work. Services include surveying, examinations, reporting, assessments, design, site supervision and engineering assurance.

We are currently recruiting 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 a technical leadership function in the rail team. You will have outstanding technical knowledge of structural mechanics, Eurocodes, British Standards and some familiarity with railway codes. You will have the ability to lead the design of the most complex of structures, as well as supporting and mentoring junior employees.

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.

We offer a competitive salary with an excellent benefits package, an annual performance related bonus and opportunities for progression in a growing practice.

The company is an equal opportunities employer, so please inform us of any special requirements that you may have.
