The Role:

Our client's London office seeks an Engineering Lead for their Construction Engineering (CE) team. You will collaborate with other Discipline Leads to support and grow the team, working closely with structural, civil, infrastructure, and construction engineering disciplines.

  • Lead projects and coordinate designs with other project team consultants.
  • Undertake structural erection methodology reports in conjunction with engineering teams and contractors.
  • Develop effective design solutions for a range of different scenarios and sectors.
  • Independently draft reports, specifications, and prepare site investigations.
  • Independently draft proposals with attention to the commercial aspects involved in quoting projects.
  • Manage projects from inception, including budgeting, resourcing, revenue recognition, and invoicing.
  • Confidently work with external partners and clients.

About You:

As the Discipline Lead, you will be a senior member of the Engineering team, where you'll strengthen their skills and capabilities and provide support to the Engineering and Drafting teams. As a successful applicant, you'll have:

  • Sound understanding of relevant engineering standards and guidelines.
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills internally and with clients.
  • Excellent time management and the ability to prioritise execution of work.
  • High level of attention to detail.
  • Ability to review the work of others and communicate feedback effectively in a considered fashion.
  • Ability to undertake design reviews and proof engineering of other team member's work.
  • Ability to lead, supervise, and grow a team of senior, intermediate, and junior engineers.
  • Ability to manage projects commercially to achieve strong outcomes.
  • Experience working at different stages of project design (concept, schematic, detailed, execution).

Why here?

  • Vibrant central London location.
  • Competitive remuneration.
  • Be part of a team of talented, dedicated engineers who bring a unique offering to the UK market.
  • Close links with offices in the rest of the world.
