Founded in 1927, Stirling Maynard is an established independent Civil and Structural Engineering Design Consultancy based in Peterborough.  We provide full professional services to plan, design, project manage and supervise all types of construction and development projects.  We are now looking to recruit an additional engineer to our infrastructure and drainage design department.

The Role

We require an engineer to assist with and undertake the design of infrastructure and drainage schemes, working alongside senior engineers, graduates and technicians, as part of our design team. This role would suit an engineer with some experience who is looking to develop their skills through working on interesting and challenging projects.  The successful candidate will be able to register on our ICE Approved Training Scheme which provides the opportunity to develop skills and work towards achieving chartered or incorporated engineer status in a structured way.

The Ideal Candidate

You have a good first degree (BEng or MEng) in Civil Engineering plus one to two years design experience with a UK Consultancy. Suitable experience would include the production of Flood Risk Assessment reports, use of WINDES software to design drainage networks, SuDs design, highway design, earth modelling using PDS or similar software, and AutoCAD.  Most important is a keen interest in infrastructure / drainage design, a pro-active attitude to learning, and attention to detail along with the enthusiasm and drive necessary to meet project deadlines.  You gain satisfaction from the problem-solving aspects of engineering design.

You are a good communicator with high standards of verbal and written English, an optimistic outlook, are adaptable to new challenges and have a can-do attitude. You relate well to other people regardless of their background and culture.

You have the right to work in the UK.

Candidates without the requisite academic qualifications may still be considered where they can demonstrate suitable experience and the ability to learn.
