Job advert - Civil Engineer
Position Available in Lothian or Fife

Christie Gillespie Consulting Engineers is a fast growing and respected privately owned Civil and Structural Engineering Consultancy, with offices in the Lothians and Fife.  The firm is run by two Directors, Alistair Christie and  Richard  Gillespie  who  are  both  Chartered  Engineers  with  over  50  years  of combined experience between them.

Over recent times, the Company has become increasingly involved in projects requiring significant drainage and roads engineering consultancy. Because of the increase in Civils workload, the company is looking to further develop its Civil Engineering capability. 

A Civil Engineer with experience in roads and drainage design is required to work on a variety of projects in the housing, industrial, commercial and retail sectors. The role consists of taking responsibility for the preparation of designs for roads and drainage elements of projects and liaising with the necessary public authorities to gain the necessary design approvals.

The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate an appropriate level of experience which is likely to be at least 5 years. The role requires a well organised and self-motivated individual who is able to work with minimal supervision and take responsibility for the quality of their output.

Particular experience is required in the use of the relevant design and production software such as Micro Drainage or equivalent, Autodesk AutoCad & Autodesk Civils 3D, based on a detailed knowledge of the application of technical design standards such as SuDS Manual C753, DMRB, Roads Development Guides and the like. Competencies in liaising with clients and stakeholders such as local authorities and Scottish Water in order to gain approvals are necessary.

This will be a key role in the company and will provide the opportunity to develop the Civil Engineering discipline within the business and expand the team through both effective project delivery and business development activities. This is a great opportunity for someone wishing to develop their career within a fast growing and successful Engineering consultancy. The level and salary for the post will be commensurate with the successful candidate’s experience and abilities.
