Structural Engineer

Are you looking for a new opportunity to build a career with a prestigious and growing business in your local area? An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Structural Engineer to join our clients growing team within the Cambridge, Essex and London areas.

This is a varied role that would suit an experienced engineer, already chartered or working towards Chartered status. If you have experience within Structural Analysis and a good understanding of “first principles” of engineering mechanics, this could be a great opportunity for you.

If you are looking to change your day to day working environment within a supportive and professional team, this position as a Structural Engineer could be of interest to you.

As a Structural Engineer you will be:

  • Responsible for Structural analysis with respect to recognised codes of practice: principally the Structural Eurocodes BS EN 1990 to 1999 but also others such as British Standards as appropriate. Preparation of general arrangement layouts and detail sketches, for drawing production by a technician; supervision and checking of documentation.
  • Preparation of construction drawings, detail sketches, using CAD or manual methods. Carrying out site inspections and preparing professional reports, either independently or in conjunction with and supervising a technician.

  • Providing advice and assistance based on best practice in construction and engineering. As the Structural Engineer you will have:
  • Ability to read and interpret architectural drawings and engineering calculations and produce clear and comprehensive calculations, technical drawings, reports and illustrations to a reliable and sometimes demanding timescale.
  • A methodical and thorough approach to collecting and recording information from site observations and documents, presenting data in a logical and clear format. Sound understanding of mathematics and structural analysis and design, with a high standard of written and spoken English.
  • A professional and methodical attitude, with a desire to learn and act on initiative. Knowledge of engineering geology and geotechnical design is desirable. Experience in architectural 3D modelling (Revit or similar) is advantageous but not essential.
