Cundall’s Geotechnical Engineering team pride ourselves on our exemplary track record of providing innovative and sustainable geotechnical engineering solutions, focussed on ensuring the best possible foundations for construction design that improves and protects the environment in which we live, while providing the facilities for day-to-day life, ensuring that transport and industry function effectively.
The Geotechnical Engineering team are an award-winning source of world leading expertise – and offer a pro-active and collaborative approach to skill development, and professional excellence.
This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced Geotechnical Engineer to join our specialist Geotechnical group, 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 design and oversee site investigations and risk assessments, geotechnical calculations and analysis, geotechnical design (shallow strips/pads, piled foundations, slope stability, retaining structures), specification and procurement.
Holding a degree (ideally a BEng or preferably MEng in Civil Engineering) with further post-graduate experience in Geotechnical Engineering or Engineering Geology (ideally with an appropriate MSc), you have demonstrable experience in a broad range of geotechnical engineering work including the design of basement excavations, retaining structures, shallow and deep foundations, slope stability and landslide analysis, ground improvements and rock engineering applications.
You are fully conversant with principles of soil and rock mechanics and hydrogeology and undertaking designs in accordance with Eurocode 7. You will also be familiar with geotechnical analysis software.
To succeed in this role you will also bring your significant experience of scoping, conducting and interpreting site investigations for a variety of civil and structural engineering schemes. You will also provide internal advice throughout design stages on cost effective and appropriate geotechnical solutions. An understanding of geoenvironmental issues, including, contaminated land regulations would be useful but not essential.
Given the collaborative and client focussed nature of this role, excellent communication skills and experience of using your initiative and negotiating skills to overcome challenges are essential.
