Principal Geotechnical Engineer

Date: August/15/2018

Sirius Geotechnical is looking to recruit a Principal Geotechnical Engineer to join their consultancy team based out of its Yorkshire Office, located in Leeds. The post will involve working across a range of development sectors, including residential, commercial, industrial and retail.

The role will be mainly office based duties, but some site works/visits should be expected as should regular attendance at client or regulatory meetings. UK-wide travel to other Group offices and project sites should be expected as and when required. The successful candidate will report to the regional Associate/Director and Technical Director for geotechnics.


The role will include responsibilities such as maintaining and developing client relationships, Project Management of environmental and geotechnical ground investigations, geotechnical design for structures such as low rise residential/commercial properties, retaining walls and slope stability, as well as leading a team of engineers. The role will also include much interaction with, and offering geotechnical assistance to, the Sirius Group of companies, and therefore an appreciation of site remediation and earthworks techniques is essential.


The position is very much a forward-facing role and the successful candidate will be required to work both as part of a team and under their own initiative, in a dynamic fast changing environment.


We are therefore seeking a candidate who is a minimum of degree qualified in an appropriate geological/engineering field, ideally to Masters level in a Geotechnical/Engineering Geology discipline and of Chartered status, and has 10 or more years’ experience working within a relevant sector. This is an exciting time to join an expanding multi-disciplinary business involved in a diverse range of activities. As would be expected of a role such as this, there is an attractive salary and benefits package, including a company car/car allowance, available for the successful applicant.
