When you achieve Chartership – it’s time to start thinking about your future. It’s something you work towards for so long, that when it comes… now what?
Do you want to stay where you are? Work your way up to a Principal? Or do you want to go somewhere smaller – somewhere you can become integral. A Senior Management position. A leading voice in the consultancy.
A small North London Structural Design Consultancy are seeking an entrepreneurial Chartered Structural Engineer to join their small team, to become an Associate within 12 months, and ultimately a Director. This is a very real aim of the firm, and the reason for the vacancy is both due to an increasing workload and a long-term plan to establish senior figures in the business for the future. They are prepared to make accommodations to suit the right candidate.
Their workload constantly varies and can include private residential, public housing, design and build for developers / contractors, commercial, education, health and conservation.
Currently, the workload is predominately private house extensions. refurbishments, and occasional new builds – with projects typically varying in value from £100,000 to £3,5000,000.
This is a good package. There’s a discretionary bonus, 5 weeks + holidays for annual leave, flexi-time can be considered, a London zone annual travel card (home zone into zone 1) and an optional stakeholder pension scheme – matching up to 5% x salary.
Given the small size of the consultancy and the seniority of your position, you have to be able to represent the company at client, design team and site levels and be highly experienced in the design of timber, masonry, steel and concrete structures. Glass is useful. Naturally, you will need to be better than well versed in the repair or refurbishment of older buildings.
You must be experienced in project running – you’re going to be a major player here – so that’s everything from financial control to design and detailing to man management.
