You will be in an office surrounded by a motivated multi-discipline team, and be connected to our national network of technical experts across the UK. We will value you for going beyond to exceed customer expectations and deliver solutions by continuously developing your technical and managerial skills, in a company that is committed to your training and development.


  • Proactive commitment to Health and Safety.
  • Deliver projects as part of a team as well as on individual assignments as required.
  • Investigate and resolve wastewater infrastructure issues through the development of design solutions.
  • Interact with clients and other stakeholders during face to face meetings.
  • Team development and engagement with digital initiatives.
  • Bid preparation and the work winning process. 
  • Budget and Programme tracking.
  • Depending on experience and interest, your role may include design, data analysis and technical report writing.

The Individual

  • Demonstrable track record of technical achievement and client satisfaction within the water industry.
  • Excellent interpersonal, verbal and written communication skills.
  • Knowledge and experience of using network modelling packages such as InfoWorks, ICM, design packages such as AutoCAD (Civils 3D), and GIS packages such as MapInfo, ArcGIS.
  • Ability to manage the completion of assignments on time, within budget and to a high technical standard.
  • Experience of working as part of a team of modellers, engineers and/or technicians.
  • Chartered or close to being chartered with an industry recognised institute.
