Job description

Golden Unicorn Required.

Senior Civil Infrastructure Engineer


Look, I know what I want is a tall ask.

Not many of you around with the right level of experience - and none of you are sitting around in your pants waiting for the phone to ring while watching Jeremy Kyle.

The good ones, well, you already know you're good, and your boss knows it even more - so even if you tried to leave I've got to deal with a tug of war with your line manager, negotiate a counter offer and given Brexit is around the corner I'd guess your significant other is also in- play telling you not to leave; as who wants to be last in - first out if the economy goes pear shape next year?

Damn that recession… Brexit, skills shortage and any other excuse I can think of.


Still, the wheels do have to keep turning, business won't stop for man nor beast and I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't come up with inventive or creative ways to find those hard to reach candidates - sure, I have been "outside the box thinking" sensible, honest and even underhand in some cases to find what I need, borderline ethical sometimes - but definitely all legal I promise.

Trouble is, the demand is greater than the supply and in those situations the price always goes up. it has to, and although some clients won't believe it, the sensible ones know they got to pay and pay big, one way or another.

What I really really want.

So, let me spin it around to you. If you're a senior or principal engineer, chartered or not, with experience in using Auto CAD, Civils 3D to design and detail highways and drainage infrastructure on residential commercial or industrial developments, can hold your own in front of a client and have working knowledge of S38/278, support planning applications such as FRA's, drainage strategies…

OK, OK you know what I want right,

What I want to know is, what do you want? What is it going to take to move you to anyone of my clients in Herts, Bucks, London and Essex or beyond,

Let's address the money aspect, amongst other - of course there are limits, but boundaries and rules are meant to be stretched, or broken. Try me. What do you need, golden hello, bigger bonus, larger base? Promotion or all of the above… There's no shame in it - just tell me, as my old grandad says, don't ask, don't get. You would struggle to surprise me in this market.

Of course, there are other aspects, culture, location, leadership and projects to name a few, but this is not what this ad is about.

I work highly confidentially, in the evenings and weekends - sometimes.

Call me.
