Why not...

The Civil Engineering & Advanced Technology department within the Atkins Infrastructure business is looking to appoint a Reinforcement Detailer. The team has experienced strong growth and has expanded to the point where an in-house RC detailing skillset is required.
The successful candidate will be an experienced user of one or more 3D CAD packages, with proven experience managing model information in a common data environment for major civil/structural projects. You will typically be Bristol office based but flexible to work at client sites and other Atkins offices.

The Infrastructure business provides multidisciplinary engineering services and integrated solutions across a wide range of major civil engineering and infrastructure projects.

Drawing upon a diverse skill set and a proven track record of delivery we are playing a leading role in some of the world’s most challenging and exciting engineering projects. These include Airports, Defence, Energy, Marine, Civil Infrastructure, Transportation, Water, Education, Commercial/ Residential and Rail in the UK and Abroad. We pride ourselves in offering a truly multi-disciplinary capability and bring exciting opportunities to influence major projects from beginning to end. Our vision is to be the world’s best Infrastructure Consultancy, with a broad range of clients influencing policy and future technology.

Tekla is our principal RC detailing tool of choice. A knowledge of this software is desirable, in house training will be provided to a suitable candidate, but strong prior experience of RC detailing is essential.
One of our key projects adopting Tekla is Hinkley Point C, to which the candidate can expect to provide significant support.

Atkins have committed to innovative digital targets, all reinforcement is produced as 3D models, this is a great opportunity to work on a groundbreaking project at the forefront of 3DRC. It is probable that the candidate will be required to join and nurture the growing team in the engineering office at or near the Hinkley point C site.
