We are continuing to grow the geotechnical and engineering geology team in our Warrington office.
The Warrington geotechnical team is part of our ground engineering group in the Europe, which in turn forms part of a global practice. Members of these groups are linked by close technical and project delivery networks, which enhance the opportunity to develop your technical skill and engineer a rewarding long-term career.
You will work within a team who deliver geotechnical services within a large variety of civil engineering and infrastructure projects, including highways, rail, water, ports and bridges. Your main role will be to provide geotechnical design calculations, support project delivery through desk studies, design/supervision/ interpretation of ground investigations and, potentially, support during construction.
This varied workload provides exceptional prospects for career development, as the team is involved with some of the largest, most complex and prestigious civil engineering projects.
