Summary

We are currently recruiting for a Bridge Engineer to join our Croydon office and support a growing workload of exciting projects located in the UK and around the world. Our focus is on the use of our skills to deliver innovative and economic solutions for our clients. This has created an enviable reputation in the bridges discipline whether considering the design of new or the assessment of existing structures. As an experienced Bridge Engineer within our Bridges team you will be able to grow a career within our bridges business and you could be responsible for either leading a section of the design or package/ programme managing while reporting to the project director.

Responsibilities will include bridge structural analysis and design/assessment, involving:

  • Performing (advanced) analysis for a wide variety of (often complex) scenarios
  • Designing or assessing all types of bridge structures to develop cost-effective solutions
  • Mentoring and nurturing early career professionals within the team

Does this sound like you?

As an experienced Bridge Engineer, you are familiar working to industry codes and standards and are comfortable pushing boundaries where appropriate. You have a good understanding of structural behaviours and are able to translate this knowledge into effective structural design within bridge structures. You also have good structural understanding with the ability to grasp analytical techniques and interrogate the results of analysis. Additionally, with your strong interpersonal skills you have the ability to communicate effectively in face to face meetings with both colleagues and clients. Due to the nature of our projects, you will be willing to travel to project sites in the UK and internationally as required.

You will also be able to demonstrate the following:

  • A Master's degree in Civil or Structural Engineering (MSc or equivalent)
  • On route to chartership or Chartered with a professional institution
  • Structural design experience working on bridge project

Although not essential, it would be advantageous if you have previous experience in project management as would any experience of various software packages (we currently work with packages such as Sofistik, RM Bridge, MIDAS, LUSAS, SAM, and Staad). It would also be beneficial if you have the ability to guide teams in the design project and like to take an innovative approach with an ability to work from first principles and think "outside the box".
