We are looking for a Senior Structural Engineer to join our growing Building Structures team in Atkins Epsom Office as part of the Infrastructure business.

The successful candidate will hold a degree or equivalent qualification in Civil / Structural Engineering, have solid experience in the design and assessment of building and civil structures in the UK and be Chartered with either the ICE or IStructE.

Additionally the successful candidate needs to be self-motivated and hard working with a desire to help grow and shape the current team.

The team is led by Paul Martin with three other Associate Directors and six Associates. The team takes on up to five new Graduates every year and is committed to training and mentoring junior engineers. The team works on a wide variety of national and international projects in the UK, currently predominantly in the Nuclear, Defence and Airport sectors. Going forward there is a desire to extend to other sectors and the successful candidate will be key in driving this forward.

In addition to the role requirements detailed above the following is required;

• Extensive experience working as a structural engineer in the UK buildings sector;
Chartered Engineer status (ICE or IStructE);
• Experience in the design of building structures using the conventional engineering materials (steel concrete, timber, masonry) to both British Standards and Eurocodes;

• Ability to use AutoCAD and structural analysis software (Robot and Fastrak). Revit experience is also desirable.

Join us in this role and you can take your career so much further. We offer the opportunity to work across different disciplines, in different UK offices and even to take up international or client-based secondments. So you won’t just be helping to shape the world of tomorrow, you’ll be shaping your own future too.
