We are looking to appoint an Associate Director/Director of Structural Engineering, based in Liverpool. The practice is a multi-disciplinary division that is trusted to deliver some of the industry's most challenging and time-critical engineering projects. 

As Associate Director or Director, dependent on experience, you will provide design and technical leadership to our structural engineering teams. Successful applicants will have a broad understanding of design, excellent holistic problem-solving skills, and a thorough understanding of engineering principles and how they are applied through codes of practice and industry specific standards.  My clients reputation is based on successful delivery and the role will require this technical knowledge to be translated into the team’s ability to respond to client needs and timescales. 

This is also a great opportunity for a technical leader in the profession to develop the teams, in terms of capability and leading ambitious engineers.  The successful applicant will educate, inspire, and motivate colleagues to high standards of design quality and to achieve successful delivery.  We would expect the successful applicant to join and enhance the open culture where curiosity and imagination are valued alongside technical rigour.

In collaboration with the team, my client is enhancing their ability to undertake high profile, design led projects.  The technical leaders will therefore need to demonstrate a track record of creative design and the ability to innovate in a multidisciplinary environment.  As a senior representative, we would also expect the successful candidate to present the firms achievements to clients and to peers within the wider industry.

This role presents an exceptional opportunity to work within a renowned design consultancy delivering projects across a range of sectors.  The successful candidate will make a major contribution to high profile and large scale multidisciplinary projects that are changing the way we live today.
