Job description

My Client is recruiting for a Senior Mechanical Engineer in the Water Sector

Role Summary:
As a Senior Mechanical Engineer Design Lead, you will be accountable for the design of a programme of water and wastewater infrastructure and non-infrastructure projects through the outline and detailed design, construction, commissioning, and handover. Non-infrastructure projects improve clean and wastewater treatment plants while infrastructure projects improve the network between the treatment plants and customers.

As a Senior Mechanical Engineer, you will ensure mechanical designs in your programme comply with Water standards and industry best practices. Design Leads work closely with a Contract Manager and a Quantity Surveyor as a Delivery triangle. The Delivery triangle works as a team to deliver the traditional Programme Management duties. This structure reinforces the integration of design and construction whilst providing a support network to individuals. This triangle structure between design, construction and commercial disciplines is maintained at all levels.

Your responsibilities:

  • Embed a positive and honest environment for your team where everyone is challenged and encouraged to reach their potential.
  • Analyse project performance and identify risks that may impact project delivery. Develop mitigation to avoid negative impacts or exploit opportunities.
  • Understand and administer the contract when change occurs. You will be responsible for maintaining the contract programme during design and handover.
  • Challenge the engineering solutions and delivery effectiveness of your team to ensure we always offer the Client the best value solutions. We aim to be their trusted partner of choice.
  • Provide direction and oversight of project controls and ensure your teams understand and comply with quality, programme, and cost requirements.

Experience and Qualifications:

  • Ideally Chartered member of the IMechE with extensive experience in water or wastewater, non-infrastructure and infrastructure design
  • Outline and detailed design experience of water or wastewater projects and knowledge of the Designer or Principal Designer duties under CDM 2015.
  • Experience managing design quality control processes.
  • Experience developing a programme and budget and monitoring progress against both.
  • Able to communicate clearly and work effectively to lead a multidisciplinary team.
  • Proven record in mentoring and developing staff in design.
