Senior Structural Engineer
Western Building Consultants are expanding. We have a new opportunity for an experienced Structural Engineer to join our multi-disciplinary team in Bath, to take responsibility for developing a structural engineering function, building a team and working with us to grow our business.
Who are we?
We’re a passionate and ambitious multi-disciplinary building consultancy who have grown exponentially over the last few years, building our reputation in the local area for excellence in commercial and residential projects. Whilst we’re serious about our work, we take a more relaxed view on our working culture. Fancy a drink from our fully stocked bar, or a game of pool? You make the call. We don’t micro-manage, we’re all about a grown up working culture, and we trust you to get on and do the work you need to do.
The key element of this role is variety – no two days will be the same. This role is pivotal to our growth, and will see you developing and honing a structural engineering function, growing your team to build our expertise and offering in this area. You’ll be designing structures in a variety of materials, such as steel, timber and concrete and you’ll be working on commercial and residential projects. You’ll utilise CAD software to develop design ideas and provide focus for minor civil engineering projects. We did say it would be varied.
Who you’ll be?
It possibly goes without saying – but you’ll be an experienced and fully qualified Structural Engineer. You’ll be at a point in your career where you are ready for a new challenge, and are capable of leading a function under your own steam. We’re also looking for someone personable, with excellent communication skills and capability to build relationships with our current and prospective clients – someone we could potentially see as a future partner or Director in the business.
What’s in it for you?
If you’re ambitious, this is the perfect chance to innovate and grow a function within an established business. We have guaranteed work ready and waiting for you – we just need someone to take the opportunity and run with it.
Our offices are relaxed and open plan, with a fully stocked and functioning bar, pool table and sofa area – if a ten-minute power nap means you’ll do your best work, then you go for it. As long as you are consistently delivering, you call the shots on how you spend your time during office hours.
We can also offer a starting salary of £35k-£40k – with room to progress as you start to develop the function and work with us to grow the business.
If you aren't currently located in Bath, and you'd be interested in a change of scenery, we can offer a discretionary relocation package to ensure a smooth transition.
To apply send us a copy of your CV and let us know why you’re interested in the role.
