* An interest in getting out on site to see a range of structures in different environments
* Good interpersonal skills with the ability to engage and build professional relationships with clients, peers, and other organisations
* A full UK driving licence and can travel with occasional night-time and/or weekend working

Ideally you will also have:

* High standard of written and verbal communication with the ability to write technical reports and proposals as well as give presentations to various audiences
