Principal Civil Engineer

Are you an experienced Civil Design Engineer looking for an opportunity to lead a team and develop your management skills? This opportunity will give you the chance to do exactly that at a large national engineering consultancy with exciting growth plans for the future.

About the employer?

A large, multi-disciplinary practice offering a diverse range of services to their clients across the UK. They house a team of Civil/Structural Design Engineers in the Glasgow office, driven largely from their place on the Scotland Excel Technical Consultancy Framework as well as other public sector hub contracts throughout Britain. Projects will consist of a diverse range of civil works including highways/carriageways, bridges, flood alleviation and drainage schemes.

They are based in the city centre of Glasgow, with spacious, modern offices set up to promote collaborative working across disciplines.

About the role?

They have a busy team of Graduates Engineers, Trainee/Apprentices and Technicians but require a Principal Engineer with good leadership skills to help guide and mentor the group. The role will be hands on, actively participating in the design of schemes whilst reviewing the work of the graduate engineers. You will also be involved in managing client relationships and cost management of projects, allowing you to further develop your commercial acumen and take your career to the next level.

About you?

Fundamentally, this opportunity is about offering leadership and guidance to the team. You will be relied upon to offer not just technical guidance to junior staff but also help foster a positive, inclusive working environment. An ability to relate to others and be a motivating presence within the team will be key.

Furthermore you will need to be a degree qualified Civil Engineer with proven experience in a design consultancy environment. You must also have well developed expertise in roads and drainage design in particular. Chartership will be highly desirable but applicants who are near chartership are also welcome to apply.

To apply, please submit your CV to Savanna Mitchell.
