  • The Team

    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.


    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 Geotechnical Engineer to play a leading role within our specialist Geotechnical group, to lead 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 and business development activity on projects across all sectors including Education, Healthcare, Critical Systems, Industrial, Residential and Retail.


    In this wide ranging role, you will coordinate the production of detailed geotechnical calculations and analysis, lead site investigations and risk assessments, and oversee geotechnical design (shallow strips/pads, piled foundations, slope stability, retaining structures, basement construction etc.), specification and procurement.


    You will also be responsible for the technical development and mentoring of less experienced members of the geotechnical team and drive forward the geotechnical capabilities of the team as a whole.

    The Skills

    A chartered engineer (MICE), with a post graduate qualification in Geotechnical Engineering or Engineering Geology, you have extensive 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 improvement and rock engineering applications.


    You are fully conversant with principles of soil and rock mechanics, hydrogeology and undertaking designs in accordance with Eurocode 7 and other good practice. You will also be experienced in the use of geotechnical analysis software.


    To succeed in this role you will bring demonstrable technical and management skills over a variety of multi-disciplinary project types, with a strong desire to lead and improve the technical skills of the geotechnical team.


    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.
