This is a client we at ACE Job are both proud and excited to be working with as they build upon a strong foundation of their capability to design and build projects throughout the UK within budget and on time.

Now covering the built and natural environment, they have developed from a strong water based business background where they earned an enviable professional reputation.

Due to their recent growth and success they are seeking a Senior Drainage Engineer to join them in their Consultancy department.

We fully recognise that some Engineers feel that not being a specialist dilutes their engineering kudos - however, our client gives equal importance to those that demonstrate personal attributes such as integrity, self motivation, pride in their work, while being pragmatic as a problem solver in the commercial environment.

As such, the successful candidate could be described as a "generalist" engineer with previous experience in one or more of the following areas:

*Civil Engineering degree or HNC qualified with at least 10 years experience.
*Possess good knowledge of surveying techniques
*Hold extensive knowledge of sewerage, land drainage and river systems
*Have knowledge of sewerage management planning techniques
*Demonstrate hydraulic model building and verification experience including the use of InfoWorks ICM software
*Show awareness of the installation and management of sewer flow and rain surveys
*Have the ability to manage and supervise manhole and sewer ancillary structure (CSO’s, SPS, STW etc) surveys
*Show accuracy in the use of GIS systems and ability to manage and manipulate data within MapInfo software.
*Be proficient in the use of AutoCAD

Experience of setting out would be advantageous.

Due to the seniority of the role you will be required to manage a team of people and maintain progress on a number of projects at the same time.

As this role includes some client facing aspects you will need to demonstrate excellent oral and written presentation skills with the ability to represent the company at client meetings.

The position will be office and field based, with travel throughout the UK. As a result of this you will require your own transport and a clean driving licence.

The successful Senior Drainage Engineer will be in receipt of a competitive salary and other associated company benefits.
