Structural Design Engineer-JAP/J13624

30,000 - 35,000 (DOE)

Are you a Structural Engineer looking for your next step?

Some people look to work with a large firm, offering exposure to major projects and international travel but can sometimes find they are pigeonholed or are just a number and don't get the 1 to 1 training they need. Others chose to work with a smaller firm, where they will work on a range of smaller project types but get significant exposure to experienced staff who can teach them the whole design process, from planning and civil engineering stages to completion and handover.

We are working closely with one such firm, a well-established but smaller practice who can't offer exposure to 200 Million building projects but who can offer a great working environment where the final decision maker is in the same offices as opposed to being based in a foreign country, who will offer exposure to all project stages and excellent training and progression opportunities to the right person.

They are looking for a Structural Design Engineer to join their team who will be working on a mixture of new build, refurb and domestic alterations utilising a range of materials including timber frame, steel and R/C.
