I am looking to place multiple Senior to Principal Grade Highways Engineers in a global consultancy’s office in central Leeds.

The role will feature mainly major highways schemes, drainage design and flood risk planning, including both technical design work and feasibility studies.

Candidates are expected to have already reached, or be very close to reaching, Chartered or Incorporated status with either the Institute of Civil Engineers (ICE) or the Chartered Institute of Highways and Transportation (CIHT). The role features strategic design and checking/sign-off of more junior engineers’ work, so the desire to lead and manage others is a desirable trait.

To support your office design experience, the capability to operate on site is also highly desirable. Designing using the Design Manual for Roads and Bridges (DMRB) is also a requirement for this role.

In return for the right skills, the firm are offering a range of benefits tailored to suit your individual needs, a competitive salary and the opportunity to work on some of the largest infrastructure projects currently in operation in the UK.
You may have already been operating in this type of role and are looking for a change or access to a different range of projects, or you may be looking to take a step up to the next level.
