ACE Job Kirkby in Ashfield, UK
09 Aug, 2017
Senior Engineer wanted by civil engineering consultancy who are enjoying some exciting growth having secured work via a sewage and drainage framework contract. Located near Mansfield my client's office has two sections; a consultancy section and a contractors section. Both work together as one large team dedicated to providing civil engineering solutions to infrastructure problems. They pride themselves on providing practical, cost effective solutions, and are developing an enviable position as a trusted company that strives to avoid the claim conscious culture that sometimes exists within civil engineering. I have already placed several engineers into this company and none have a bad word to say about their new employer. Interested? Read on..., Your Personal Attributes will include: + Practical. + Enjoy problem solving. + Have good presentation skills and be comfortable representing the company at client meetings. + Ability to manage a team and maintain progress on several projects at one time. Still interested in joining this consultancy? Below is a list of skills and experience that they are looking for. The successful candidate does not have to have everything in the list but over time you will be expected to increase your skills in line with the challenges that you will encounter as the company continues to expand. Fundamentally there will be some "learning on the job" but isn't that always the case? + Civil Engineering qualification and background. + Good understanding of surveying techniques. + Good knowledge of sewerage and land drainage. + Understanding of River systems. + Knowledge of sewerage management planning techniques. + Knowledge of the installation and management of sewer flow and rainfall surveys. + Experience in managing surveys of sewerage structures such as Combined Sewer Overflows, Sewerage Pumping Stations and Sewage Treatment Works. On the technical side the following would be useful. + Good knowledge of AutoCAD. + Experience with PDS or similar. + Experience with Infoworks (but this can be taught if you have familiarity with the likes of microdrainage) + Experience in using GIS and the ability to manage MapInfo Data. You will also need a car and a clean driving license. As you can see from the above we are looking for a well rounded engineer with time served experience gained in a local authority, or similar consultancy, role. You may be well versed in everything above but perhaps your skillset leans more to highway design / section 38 or 278 works. If this is the case then we would welcome your application as this would bring another skill to the team.
