We are working with a large, independent civil and structural consultancy, looking to add an experienced senior Highways Engineer to their staff on a permanent basis in South Manchester,
The client is widely established with a 40+ year operating history over several UK offices. They continue to be privately owned and benefit from not being caught up in the internal politics which often restrict large corporate firms.
Technology and keeping an eye on the future is key to their success, as they are always at the forefront of new industry trends and resources, rapidly adapting to any changes in technology and end-user requirements.
Examples of this can be found in all the clients’ works using advanced digital tools and computer analysis software, including 3D Building Information Modelling (BIM). Where they are used throughout all stages of the design process.
