Engineering Project Manager / Senior Engineer
Location: Brighton and Hove
Job Type: Full time
Engineering Project Manager / Senior Engineer
As the Engineering Project Manager/Senior Engineer you will work with and manage a multidisciplinary team of technical specialists, delivering projects in close partnership with clients and contractors, building strong relationships that will enhance the company's reputation and help secure further work.
In this role, you will lead the design of innovative and sustainable solutions to address leakage challenges, cleanwater provision and sewage disposal across our client's water networks. Some of these projects are emergency work and reactive in nature - so you will need to lead fast-paced design, whilst managing change and impacts on the other projects within the wider programme.
You will be expected to coordinate project teams throughout the project lifecycle from design definition through to implementation, fulfilling all aspects to successfully manage projects including business management system compliance, technical quality assurance, programme and cost control management as well as leading client interface. You will work closely with contractors, often on site, reacting to queries and changes. You will represent the company in meetings and supervise the work of more junior staff, providing technical and commercial guidance to support their development.

You will have control of your own career path and great prospects for career progression as the business continues to grow.
