Associate/Chartered Structural Engineer

Are you a Senior or Principal Structural Design Engineer in Edinburgh looking for that next step up? One of the most common reasons given when people register with us, is a lack of career progression within their current employers. It's often the case that the higher you go within a company structure the more static it becomes. That may be a sign that the company is well run and maintains a happy, well-motivated workforce at all levels. However, it can also mean that the doors of opportunity to progress are often closed at a senior level.

We are currently dealing with a small, boutique, yet well networked consultancy in the Edinburgh area who are looking to make a key strategic appointment within their senior team. They are interested in considering Senior or Principal Engineers who may be looking to step up to Associate Director level within the next few years.

With a well-developed and varied collection of clients, they are a business that often enjoys repeat work awards as part of valued, long term relationships. With a focus instead on delivering a quality service to this base of clients, they are rarely required to chase low margin work in an often overheated, highly competitive market.

Having assembled a team of Engineers and Technicians, they are now looking to appoint a someone in a leadership role to help continue the good progress made so far.

They are looking for an individual who can display the following skills, qualifications and attributes:
• Degree qualified in Structural Engineering or equivalent (minimum 2:1 Hons)
• Proven background in design of building structures
• MIStructE status or working towards this
• SER Certifier Status or ambition/willingness to work towards
• Experience in leading and mentoring teams of Engineers
• Experience in leading projects in a client facing capacity

If you can demonstrate all of the above and are interested in discussing this opportunity in more detail we would be keen to hear from you. Send your CV to Jamie Porter or call on in 01786 446651 for a confidential and informative conversation.
