Reading, Berkshire (Flexible/agile working)

£35,000 - £45,000

My client, a major engineering consultancy, is seeking to expand their design offering by bringing on a Design Engineer.

They have been appointed as a partner to Thames Water's 5-year AMP7 capital works programme. The programme will improve clean and wastewater services to 15 million customers, as well as improving the environment. This appointment gives them direct allocation to a multimillion-pound programme of water and wastewater non-infrastructure and infrastructure projects.

My client is looking for talented design engineers, of varying disciplines and with 3 to 5 years' experience in water/wastewater, or any other major civil discipline, to join their growing teams. Working collaboratively with a Site Manager and Quantity Surveyor, you will be responsible for delivering the design of a project. This role will provide you with the opportunity to develop your technical and management skills, grow your professional network, and provide you with excellent long-term potential to advance your career.



  • Work collaboratively with and lead members of the project design team.
  • Form collaborative relationships with the Site Manager and Quantity Surveyor, and the Thames Water project team, to understand the competing tensions of time, cost and quality, and successfully deliver outcomes.
  • Contribute to creating a positive and engaging environment.
  • Support the work of more junior design staff and encourage their development.


  • Help to identify and develop affordable, innovative and low carbon solutions.
  • Be responsible for leading and delivering multi-disciplinary design for a water, or wastewater, project.
  • Produce design deliverables within your discipline.
  • Provide construction and commissioning support regarding design.
  • Plan, monitor and manage the design, to ensure that the design is completed within budget, on time, minimises risk, and the output complies with the required standards and quality requirements.
  • Be an enabler for using my clients global design services and digital services.
  • Deliver designs that consider and mitigate safety and environmental risks.


  • Positively engage with Thames Water to develop relationships and enhance our reputation.
  • Contribute to achieving high KPI scores.

It is envisaged that the ideal candidate will have the following:

  • Qualified design engineer
  • Either chartered or working towards chartership.
  • Knowledge of water and wastewater assets and design.
  • Experience of producing and delivering the design for water, or wastewater, non-infrastructure and infrastructure projects, from solution to detailed design.
  • Experience of managing design quality control processes.
  • Able to collaborate and work effectively within a multidiscipline and diverse team.
  • Ability to successfully deliver design to program, budget and quality requirements.
  • Proactive approach and growth mindset, with an ability to adapt to changing scenarios.
  • Understanding of designer's responsibilities under CDM.

The client is committed to providing a flexible and agile working environment that supports both their employees and the needs of the business. ​ ​This role is likely to be predominantly home based, with opportunity for some agile working.
