About the role

BWB Consulting has an exciting opportunity for a Senior Engineer to be based in our Nottingham Office.

The role of Senior Engineer would be to supervise and manage aspects of a number of projects.  Additionally, a Senior Engineer would be sometimes required to deputise for the Team Leader and supervise and assist employees in the Team.  

Specifically, you will play a role in the technical delivery of the T&I Planning Service. Skills in CAD, road safety engineering, junction design and assessment will be a bonus. Typical software packages we use include PICADY, ARCADY, LinSig, and TRICS.

About the team

Within the Transport & Infrastructure Group, our Planning Team offers a wide range of services to complement the activities of the Group and the company as a whole, as well as providing bespoke services to our Clients.

The majority of the technical work is transport planning and traffic engineering at the planning stage of private sector development projects. We are therefore looking to appoint people at Engineer and/or Senior Engineer roles at our Leeds office. In summary, the candidate for the role(s) will therefore have good writing skills, being able to present technical assessments in Transport Assessment reports, Transport Statements and Travel Plans for projects of all types and sizes. 

We take pride in successfully working with Clients on a range of projects, big and small. This ranges from new settlements with thousands of dwellings for large developers to a handful for small landowners, rail freight terminals, office developments, industrial estates, sports grounds and other leisure uses, medical centres, churches, country parks, you name it!
