A Director or potentially Associate Director level position has arisen within this small structural consultancy based in Wimbledon. This is a wide ranging role acting as lead structural designer on a number of projects and assisting managing the more junior staff and running the business. Profit share will be available for the right person and likely package could value up to £100k.

The role would ideally include the inspection of residential property (mainly period houses) to prepare engineers reports on a range of defects mainly subsidence and movement/ cracking related. Most of these houses and flats have failed mortgage surveys and require a specialist second opinion. Most are in South and West London.

The role would not suit a senior line manager from a larger firm who has moved away from day to day design of building elements.

Typical design projects range from a £50,000 to £5M.

The work is wide ranging and includes some commercial buildings, but mainly client luxury residential work. You will need to enjoy detail and helping architects unravel small but important details. You will need to be able to communicate with private lay clients and explain what engineers do in simple, not technical terms.

The team structure is quite small so needs a day to day hands on design approach, not a pure management role, with 90% of your time spent on fee earning work.

You will deal with client appointments, fee agreements and be responsible for keeping clients well informed and of course happy!

Previous small practice experience would be beneficial.

The offices are in the heart of trendy Wimbledon Village, an energetic 10 minute walk from Wimbledon Station. Free parking is a 10 minute walk away. Cyclists can park securely in their car park. Ideally you should be a Chartered Structural Engineer. Drivers license clearly essential as is meeting people, being a good communicator and well organised. Excellent interpersonal skills essential.

EXISTING London building stock and private client residential refurb expertise is essential. This requires UK building stock familiarity and practical on site experience in the UK. You need to understand old buildings and what you will find when they are taken them apart.

You must be familiar with all forms of residential construction, ranging from new houses and flats, Victorian houses, extensions and conversions. Some site work and plenty of variety in projects. You must be a team player and enjoy going to work but they like to enjoy a balanced lifestyle so do not expect you to work long hours. A typical week is 35 to 37 hours and senior positions enjoy 5 weeks holiday.
