Title - Civil Infrastructure Technician

The client I'm currently working with provide multi-disciplinary engineering consultancy services across the UK from 10 offices in the UK alone. The Company prides itself on delivering innovative and commercial construction and infrastructure engineering solutions on a very wide range of projects across the business sector spectrum. There delivery teams comprise of professionally qualified engineers of every discipline and the Company is committed to developing its skill base by employing people who are passionate about their careers, thrive on responsibility and committed to exceeding client's requirements. With an extensive client list comprising of many leading construction companies, national development companies, institutional investors and other household names.

The office consists of a Civil, Structural, Geo and Transport team, they have around 50 technical staff and 3 Directors in the Civil team alone, one of which is no-longer hands on. It's a very nice environment in the office, although the mood is tolerant of having a laugh and enjoying yourselves, the work is still needed and done to a very high standard. The consultancy has a great presence with the likes of major developers in the higher educational, retail and commercial sector, in which brings in major infrastructure projects and structural work that exceeds £35million at a time. Along with this they work on major educational, residential, commercial and health care schemes.
I am currently looking for a Senior Technician for their busy civil engineering team, based in their newly modernised Derby office. It is essential that the candidate will be capable of working well within a team environment. They will have excellent mathematical and technical skills, an up to date knowledge of the relevant software and standards to produce quality detailed drawings / designs, ensuring that engineering solutions produced comply with current design and construction standards, applicable legislation and client expectations; and are delivered in accordance with the agreed timescales.

Civil engineering design and drafting functions will be primarily in the field of highways, drainage, utilities and earthworks and specific experience of the following is desirable:
3D site modelling and road design using PDS design suite
S38/S278 highway design to Manual for Streets and Design Manual for Roads & Bridges
Volumetric Assessment
Drainage design for Private and Adoptable Systems (Strategy and Layout, Hydraulic Calculations)
General Detailed Drawing using AutoCAD 2014
Undertaking Statutory Authority Searches & Liaison
General Reporting and Correspondence
Construction Specifications
Risk Assessments

You must have at least 3 years experience working in a UK consultancy working on similar schemes. It is vital that you have experience and exposure to similar schemes with experience on Civils 3D and possibly microdrainage but this is only desirable. In house promotions are common with this consultancy and they are keen for the right candidate to come in, grow and progress with them and push their own business ideas. Civils 3D is vital and needed for this role.
