We are looking for a candidate who can log soils to both Eurocode and British Standards, interpret geological information and raw ground investigation data to determine a characteristic ground model. The candidate will be required to attend site as part of this role.

  • Review, sort and manipulate AGS data to generate a ground model
  • Prepare calculations, drawings and other documents and ensuring these are controlled during the execution of projects
  • Carry out bearing capacity calculations without supervision
  • Undertake settlement analysis
  • Operate geotechnical software/programming, such as Holebase, Limit State Geo, Settle 3D or equivalent
  • Write GIR & GDR (interpretative reporting and design)
  • Design temporary works and enabling elements (e.g. temporary access which could include rams, haul roads for construction, bridging over pipelines)
  • Design permanent works i.e. foundations
  • Co-ordinate with other engineers and other teams
  • The candidate should also be familiar with conditions of contract for ground investigation and be experienced in managing/supervising sub-contractors and controlling budgets.
