As an Engineering Lead, your primary objective will be to identify and eliminate issues to fully de-risk site activities. This will involve interfacing with the Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Area Multi-Disciplinary Teams on the HPC project.

To be successful you will need to use 3D and 4D tools, such as Navisworks and/or Synchro, and manage and analyse data via databases, excel and Power BI.


Pay, benefits and culture…

In addition to a salary Circa £80,000 per annum, depending on experience. We offer flexible benefits that support our employees’ physical, emotional, and financial wellbeing.
