Job description

My client is currently seeking a Principal to Associate Engineer to join their busy Civil Infrastructure team in Cambridge. This is an opportunity to join an innovative and ambitious group that are based in a new office space in the heart of the commercial district, close to the railway station. They can offer the flexibility of a balance between home and office working which will help maintain a good work life balance and effective team working.
They are fortunate to work with an excellent range of clients in the East of England and beyond and their client-focused approach has enhanced their reputation as one of the leading development consultancies in the local market. Their multi-disciplinary teams are working on a wide variety of projects in both the private and public sectors and with a strong forward workload, they look forward to a busy period ahead.
They can provide the opportunity to work on the major new settlements in the region, the expansion of enterprise zones, or community-based projects from concept through to commissioning and beyond. From lead consultant for new leisure villages for Center Parcs, to the design of infrastructure for residential development, they create exciting opportunities for the development of staff. They are the leaders in their field for the investment in staff development, apprentice programmes, STEM initiatives, and the progression of future business leaders.
You will take responsibility for running your own projects, including the management of the design process on a range of infrastructure development schemes for public and private sector clients. You will have the opportunity to play a key role in the success of the team and gain valuable exposure to some of the best projects in the region. You will lead and mentor the junior members of the group and aid their development and progression.
You will liaise with the internal and external clients and design teams on projects and be involved in the delivery and management of successful and timely outcomes, on land development projects working in and managing multi-disciplinary teams.
Your role will be varied and challenging, and there will be opportunities for you to develop and progress your own career.
You will be degree qualified in civil engineering or similar and professionally qualified to either CEng or IEng. You will be focused on achieving coordinated solutions, a tactical thinker and effective at communicating with both internal and external parties (for example utility companies, drainage authorities, highway authorities).
Ideally, you will have expertise in infrastructure design to deliver multi-disciplinary projects for the entire lifecycle - from concept and planning through to detailed design and delivery; highway design and on-site supervision experience is preferable. You will have a proven record of delivering projects closely with clients across technical disciplines and experience of mentoring and managing the workload of junior team members. Skills with Civils 3D, MicroDrainage and utility coordination are advantageous.
Your experience of working with developer and local authority clients across a range of sectors (such as residential, commercial, infrastructure) will be important.
You'll have an interest in the future of civil engineering, in the context of a digital and low carbon society, whether in Modern Methods of Construction or BIM. Your passion for civil engineering and experience of delivering quality solutions to clients is most crucial to your success in this role.
