Highway Structures Design Engineer

Amey Consulting's Highways teams impact the journeys of millions across the UK, by working in partnership with a range of clients and providing consultancy design services for Strategic and Local Highway networks.

Our teams work on both major design projects and local network improvements and undertake services on national to local frameworks; including those with Highways England Area 10,13 and 14 accounts to Wales and Borders - Amey Keolis and the Midlands Highways Alliance (MHA).

We make our towns and cities better places to live by improving connectivity, journey times and quality of life.



The Role

Our partnership with Swindon Borough Council commenced earlier this year following our successful bid to be sole provider on their Professional Services Framework contract which runs for 3+1 years. Our initial work programme includes a wide range of highways structures related schemes from inspections and maintenance to bridge strengthening and replacement projects.

We are now looking to recruit a Highway Structures Civil Engineer within our Structures and Bridges team. The successful candidate will work collaboratively within the structures design team, providing effective support and assistance to the senior engineers and team leaders on a variety of structures and bridges schemes.

As a Highway Structures Civil Engineer at Amey Consulting, you'll see your work from early design to the very end result, and every project will be different from the last. You'll feel inspired to challenge yourself, as well as your colleagues. You'll have the opportunity to thrive and we'll help you shape your career whether through further qualification, learning new skills or whatever else you need to achieve your ambitions.

We strongly encourage the development towards a professional qualification with a recognised Institution and pride ourselves on mentoring engineers. We can offer significant support towards Chartership, and you will be rewarded with a bonus of up to £5k on completion.



In a typical week you will:

  • Take technical ownership of activities that will include the preparation of highway structures design solutions for civil engineering works at preliminary and detailed design stages, providing support to Senior Engineers.
  • Manage fee for your own individual schemes, identifying change notifications for any change of scope imposed.
  • Lead Graduates and Technicians in preparing design solutions for civil engineering projects at preliminary and detailed design stages.
  • Work on progressing towards your professional institution
  • Drive effective health and safety practices within your Team



We want to hear from you if:

  • You have a Bachelors or Masters degree in an appropriate subject
  • You have completed (or agree to) a formal training agreement leading towards Chartered Engineer status as defined by the Engineering Council and agreed a realistic programme towards achieving professional qualification, or alternatively have achieved Incorporated Engineer status as defined by the Engineering Council
  • Have an appreciation of technical governance procedures and how they are applied within a consulting engineering environment
  • You can demonstrate developing experience and expertise within the relevant technical field, probably gained in an Assistant Engineer role or equivalent
  • You can produce or oversee the production of technically sound engineering solutions, complying with all relevant technical standards and client requirements, working under supervision
  • You are experienced in undertaking project related tasks associated with health, safety and welfare, e.g. Construction (Design and Management) Regulations
  • You can demonstrate an understanding of technical governance procedures within a consulting engineering environment



In return;

Our rewards make us better people here at Amey Consulting. If you're happy, you'll think better. It's a simple formula but one that puts your wellbeing as a top priority, that's why we've worked hard to build a reward and benefits program that puts you first, including;

  • Competitive salary
  • Exceptional development and progression plan
  • Contributory Pension Scheme
  • Minimum 24 days holiday + Bank Holidays
  • Additional Leave Purchase Scheme
  • Amey Rewards Portal including healthcare, dental and childcare vouchers



What else is better about working for Amey?

Our success comes from a practical approach. We pride ourselves on solving complex challenges with original, real-world thinking, then turning it into a reality. Your solutions will have impact, making a genuine difference to people's lives. It's what makes a career with us unlike any other.

You'll be empowered to play your part and achieve, encouraged to fulfil your own ambition as well as the shared one.
