Are you a Civil Design Engineer looking to gain invaluable site based experience but being thwarted by a lack of appropriate opportunities to do so within your current employer? If so we may be in a position to help.

We are currently working with an engineering firm who are looking to bolster their site team on a large infrastructure project in the north east of Scotland. They are looking to appoint a Graduate Engineer on temporary contract. They expect the contract duration to be around 8 months with some possibility of extension.

This will give you the opportunity to spend time working closely with the contractor, gaining first-hand experience of civil engineering works as they unfold on the ground. Importantly it will give you the chance to directly input on design amendments and improvements to overcome site based challenges - something an office-based role will never quite be able to match.

In addition to your close interaction with the project designs, you will also take responsibility for review of technical specifications, material approvals and risk assessments.

In addition to attaining a more well-rounded set of skills, gaining this experience working in a live civil engineering environment can aid your progress to chartership.

To apply for the role you should be:
  • A Degree Qualified Civil Engineer
  • Experienced working in a design environment
  • Conversant in DMRB standards

On offer is the chance to enhance your CV with time spent with a highly respected name in the global engineering market working on a prestigious project. You will also earn a very competitive hourly/daily rate so will be well paid for your contribution.
