About the Role

Geotechnics….it’s been in the name since 1983. We deal with the engineering and environmental interaction between earth materials and the built environment. We work with soil, rock, groundwater and other man made materials to help ground truth and understand the site-specific engineering behaviour beneath our feet. We offer value through our research, investigation, testing, monitoring, reporting and evaluation to reduce the risks associated with the unknowns at pre-construction stage.

Our Company values (Quality, People, Integrity), ethos and vision is everything to us. Nurturing and providing a work place where everyone is involved, passionate and driven to deliver the very best quality site investigation services and data to serve the construction industry, wider community and the environment in which we operate and live.

Our vision is simple - to be the very best at what we do and to ensure the experience of working  with and for us is enjoyable for one and all.

It’s an exciting time for Geotechnics as we look to grow and build upon our solid foundations established some 40 years ago whilst striving to remain as committed, motivated, determined and responsive to our people as we are to our clients.

At Geotechnics we take great pride in being people focussed with integrity – our people are our most important and greatest asset and without we couldn’t do all the great work we do.

We value everyone’s thoughts, talents and ideas. We’re excited to see what you can make happen and we look forward to working with you

What you'll do:

Our Senior Engineers are involved in, take responsibility for and manage all aspects of our projects. From the point of award with client liaison you will work on setting up a project to ensure the most efficient programme and methods of investigation are realised. You will produce health and safety documentation, a programme of work and together with management ensure the right people and the right equipment and plant are organised so that you can then Supervise the Ground Investigation.

Post site works you will see the project through and arrange all laboratory testing and produce a report. Together with management you will be responsible for all quality, technical accuracy and commercial management and success of any given project. The role demands a good all-round knowledge of site investigation together with excellent communication skills. 

This role will initially require a blend of both site and office work to allow you to become part of the team.  It could however, quickly develop into a Project Management role should that be the way you wish your career to progress.

We are currently looking to recruit a knowledgeable, personable individual with training and over 5 years experience in site/ground investigation, Geology, Geo-environmental analysis, Engineering Geology, Civil Engineering or similar who:

  • Are suitably qualified
