Full Time
Our client is a Multi-disciplinary engineering consultancy and specialist contracting services for construction, infrastructure and the environment with offices around the UK.

The Company:

Our client has a team of highly qualified and experienced geotechnical experts who are well known in the industry for developing practical and innovative solutions.

The geotechnical engineers play a pivotal role in the delivery of both multi-disciplinary engineering and design and build contracting solutions to our clients. Their ability to understand the conditions at a site and how to address them, no matter how complex, paves the way to determine the viability of a site and how best to approach the ground.

Due diligence:

Through desk-studies and site-based analysis, our geotechnical engineers contribute to the due diligence and feasibility studies conducted on a site prior to acquisition or planned development.

They help our clients to understand the specific ground conditions and the demands on foundation design, the stability of slopes, and the existence of any unique geo-hazards.
All of these potential issues will be affected by both local geology and the history and former uses of a site.


Our client's investigations inform the development of a ground model which can be interpreted to inform geotechnical designs for foundations and slopes. The goal is to achieve the best commercial solution for each specific scenario.
Our clients work across a range of sites varying in size and complexity. Typically, they will include large redundant industrial sites planned for redevelopment for critical housing development, new hi-tech industry, or mixed-use urban development schemes.

Informing future stages:

The work informs temporary works design, land remediation strategies, earthworks, ground improvement design, and foundation design.
Our teams regularly work with both their geotechnical findings and the specialist Contracting business to develop design and build packages that enable the development of infrastructure, roads and buildings.
This ability to combine both a scientific and pragmatic mindset to the geology beneath our feet is what sets our team apart in helping devise effective and commercially viable solutions for complex sites for our clients.

The Role:

??? As a Geo-Environmental/Geotechnical Consultant, you will be part of a team delivering a range of geotechnical and/or geo-environmental assignments including (but not limited to): desk studies, ground investigations (factual and interpretative), human health, groundwater and gas risk assessments and preparation of remediation method statements.
??? You will work with senior and principal engineers to provide clients with geotechnical and/or geo-environmental advice and assistance as required on an ad hoc basis, and assist with negotiations with relevant regulatory authorities (NHBC, EA, LA etc.) as necessary.
??? You will have a good working knowledge of appropriate British Standards, Eurocodes, Industry Guidance and NHBC Standards.

The Person:

??? You will hold a BEng, BSc or higher technical qualification in a relevant subject (geology, civil engineering, environmental science etc.) and will be working towards Chartered Engineer/Geologist status.
??? You will also have at least three years of relevant experience, ideally gained in ground investigation, interpretation and reporting.
??? The role requires excellent written and verbal communication skills combined with good analysis and technical capability in MS Word. Experience of MS Excel, AutoCAD and geotechnical assessment and modelling would also be desirable.
