Principal Design Engineer

Location: South Yorkshire

"This is an amazing opportunity for Design Engineers in a Leadership role to join a main contractor within a busy rail project design team"

The Project

You will be joining a reputable and firmly established, national rail and civil engineering contractor in the Midlands region with a company turnover of circa �220m (Group TO �500m+). As a specialist civil, building, mechanical and electrical renewals and maintenance business recognised on contracts and frameworks across the country, you will become part of a renowned brand name and team giving you the opportunity to grow in conjunction with this ambitious and forward-thinking business. Your role with this company will be to take a lead role in the Design team, working on both permanent and temporary works designs. The projects you work on will be predominantly rail associated, with the majority of the work on railway structures, such as bridges, tunnels and stations.

Ideal Candidate

If you don't have experience in a lead role for civil/structural design projects, then this role isn't for you! Having a proven track record of delivering civil/structural design projects within budget is key for this role. Leadership will be second nature to you as the role will need you to take charge of the In-house Design team. This role will include a multitude of different skills but what is just as important for our client is the incentive to progress.

The Role

Your role as the Principal Design Engineer will see you taking the lead in the Design of the Civil Engineering structures. You will be mainly working within the Design and Assessment of railway structures such as bridges, tunnels and stations. You will encourage and assist the work and development of the Design team, whilst promoting safe working practices in all areas. You will undertake the role of CRE, as well as being the Design department lead representative. The management and reporting of financial, quality and programme items, that fall within the design teams, will also be part of the job.


What do we need from you? A Degree in Civil Engineering (or equivalent). A Chartership is preferred but there is no issue if you don't have one as we are also looking for people who have the ambition to become a Chartered Engineer, as this contractor can facilitate attaining chartered status for those with the necessary skills and work history. Experience in a leadership role in a Rail Design team and a Lead, Principal Designer or Associate Director (from a consultancy or contracting background) working on structures (bridges/tunnels) is essential.

Salary and benefits

* �55-65k salary plus package: �6,000 car or car allowance, healthcare package.
