We are recruiting a Principal Geotechnical Engineer to join our head office near Brighton.

You will work as part of a multidisciplinary team of Engineers and Geologists engaged on an interesting and varied range of ground investigation projects in the residential, commercial, industrial and infrastructure sectors. You will act as Project Manager for your own projects and providing internal support and advice to others within the company.  This will include designing investigation strategies, preparing and reviewing technical documentation (including GIR and GDR), laboratory test scheduling, and reviewing quotations etc.

You will also be responsible for leading and developing the geotechnical strengths and capabilities of the business, developing in-house training and systems, helping manage our in-house geotechnical laboratory and our contracting department, supervision of health and safety. Furthermore, you will be actively engaged in developing and diversifying the business in terms of client sectors and services. You will also be able to represent the company at events, exhibitions and seminars.

In particular, we are interested in offering a geotechnical design consultancy service to support our clients, including detailed design engineering solutions, drawings and specifications in slope stability, earthworks and retaining structures. Experience and interest in geotechnical design would be a benefit.

We are a relatively small company, but with ambitions to become a market leader in our sector; this is an excellent opportunity for a motivated person to grow with us; for the right candidate, the option of a Directorship (and shareholding) will be available in due course. A friendly “can do” attitude and a full driving licence are essential. An annual salary of £45-50K is available to the right candidate. We are an equal opportunity employer.
