  • The Team

    Cundall’s Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering team pride ourselves on our exemplary track record of providing innovative and sustainable geotechnical engineering solutions, focussed on ensuring the best possible construction design advice that improves and protects the environment in which we live, while providing the facilities for day-to-day life.


    The Geotechnical Engineering team are an award-winning source of expertise – and offer a pro-active and collaborative approach to skill development, and professional excellence.


    The successful candidate can be based in either our Birmingham, Edinburgh, London, Manchester or Newcastle office.

    The Role

    This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced Geoenvironmental Engineer to work on the design of some of the most exciting construction projects in the UK and worldwide. Working closely with colleagues across our multi-disciplinary practice (in particular, our Civil and Structural Engineering teams), you will provide specialist consultancy input on projects across all sectors including Education, Healthcare, Critical Systems, Industrial, Residential and Retail.


    In this wide ranging role, you will undertake detailed geoenvironmental analysis, lead site investigation and risk assessments (including Phase I and II land quality risk assessments and environmental due diligence), and undertake remediation design and verification.


    You will be required to manage and mentor junior staff and undertake detailed technical reviews of reports.

    The Skills

    Ideally holding chartership and with significant demonstrable relevant experience, along with a BSc degree (or equivalent) in geology, engineering geology, earth sciences, geochemistry or environmental science, you have extensive experience in a broad range of geoenvironmental engineering work including Phase I and Phase II assessments, remediation method statements/strategies, remediation supervision and remediation verification. You have also carried out Detailed Quantitative Risk Assessment (DQRA) for Human Health and/or Controlled Waters and have extensive experience of scoping, conducting and interpreting site investigations for a variety of schemes including for large / tall buildings in complex urban environments.


    To succeed in this role you will also bring proven working knowledge of BS 5930/Eurocode 7, BS10175, CIRIA 665, 552 and 733, BS8485, BRE-SD1, CIRIA SP32 and WM3 and the ability to produce detailed, robust and defensible ground models and conceptual site models. Experience of undertaking Tier 1 and Tier 2 qualitative and semi-quantitative contaminated land risk assessment is also essential.


    You will be able to demonstrate your ability to manage and develop more junior members of the team, and relate to more senior geotechnical staff and other Cundall engineering disciplines in a supportive and collaborative manner.


    Some basic geotechnical knowledge (i.e. assessment of appropriate bearing capacity, settlement analysis, working knowledge of earthworks etc.)  and an education to MSc would be advantageous.
