I am looking to place an experienced Chartered Structural Engineer to take up a role as Head of Structures within a large, international engineering consultancy’s Manchester office. This Head of Discipline post is to combine technical engineering excellence with strong leadership and client development skills to oversee the entirety of the consultancy’s structural engineering operations in the North of England.

This role is for someone who is an experienced engineer and manager who can support the growth of operations alongside the Technical Leads for the UK and other Regional Directors. This will involve implementation of best practice strategies, managing client relationships and being accountable for the development of growth strategies in the region.

This post comes as a result of an increased workload in the North of England for this consultancy, and additional support is required for stable growth and development of a number of projects. The consultancy has a very high profile and has worked on a range of projects across the region including airport upgrades, a range of mixed-use high-rise structures, industrial facilities, and more.

This post is to oversee a large team of engineers, technicians and other team leaders. The firm has an excellent reputation with regards to BIM technology, so any candidates should be well-equipped to provide direction and support in this area. Further, due to the nature of the post, Chartership with either the Institute of Structural Engineers (IStructE) or Institute of Civil Engineers (ICE) is highly desirable for any applicants.

This opportunity would suit someone who is already operating at this level and is looking at stepping into a new post to face new challenges whilst developing a large team of dedication professionals. The role will be challenging, with a large amount of responsibility and accountability. For those that have the ability and drive to take up the post, the firm offers a range of benefits tailored to your individual circumstances.

Job Requirements:
  • Relevant education
  • Extensive technical experience in Structural Engineering
  • Chartership with IStructE/ICE (desirable)
  • Extensive project management experience within Structural Engineering
  • Extensive experience of multidisciplinary projects
  • Extensive experience of Management, Team Leadership and Client Development

  • Desire to lead, grow and develop Structural business services at a regional level
