I am looking to place multiple Senior to Principal grade Highways Engineers in a global consultancy’s central Manchester, Salford and Blackburn offices. For those on the North side of Wales, there is the option to work out of Colwyn Bay. The firm has strategic growth plans as well as replacement of a Senior Engineer and they are looking add to their current team. 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.

Your role will also feature liaising with public bodies such as the Highways England and the Environmental Agency, as well as private clients and contractors. Previous experience in this area is also highly desirable. Alongside major schemes, the firm also produces inner-city design schemes, so the ability to coordinate infrastructure design with urban design is also highly desirable, though this is a skill than can be acquired over time.

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.
