My client have been providing professional quality services in all areas of construction across the country since 1972. The team of 80 are based in Sheffield, however the company have acquired new office working space in Winchester.
The role will be for a Graduate or Engineer who is interested in a Geotechnical role that will be predominantly site based supporting a Senior Associate Engineer, also based in Winchester. My client have lots of work in the South coast from one of their top clients. Members of Sheffield office Geo team travel to site at the moment, but this position will offer someone more local the opportunity.
Ideally the successful candidate will have 2 years experience but my client will also look at Graduate applications, someone with a relevant Geotechnical/Civil Engineering degree who is ambitious and  looking to progress with an award winning company.

The firm's reputation and expertise has grown out of investigating and advising on building on difficult ground conditions.
The company have staff specialising in surveying, supervising and reporting on ground investigation and Geotechnical design. There is also a general Geotechnical expertise within the firm as a whole.
Generally, they supervise trial pitting themselves, which allows them to see the ground conditions first hand and subsequently give advice based on their own findings rather than relying on the opinion of others. The team employ drilling and other specialist contractors when necessary to investigate deeper ground, or when a site dictates that specialist methods be used. They believe this approach has resulted in having particular expertise when advising on ground conditions, and enables them to provide economical designs for foundations on difficult sites.
