Ford & Stanley Recruitment

Are you a Chartered Structural Engineer, that enjoys problem solving, and innovative thinking?

Would you like to join a business, that is looking to disrupt the UK and International construction market, with a new and innovative product, that promises to reduce concrete and steel utilisation, and enhance sustainability across the sector?

The Civils & Infrastructure Division at Ford & Stanley are recruiting for a Chartered Structural Engineer to join a business that specialises in providing innovative and sustainable products and solutions to the construction & engineering sectors.

The Opportunity

Our client is part of a near £1b turnover group of businesses specialising in Supply Chain, Manufacturing, Consultancy, and Logistics solutions.

With the goal of enhancing sustainability across the sector our client’s product can offer both off-the-shelf and bespoke solutions to situations where traditionally reinforced concrete / rebar would be utilised. This product has already been heralded as a game changer for the industry, due to its ease of use, precision, and carbon efficient manufacture, in some cases reducing steel use by 80%, with no compromise on quality or performance.

As a Chartered Engineer in this organisation, you will act as Technical lead on a varied portfolio of projects, helping produce and co-ordinate design solutions that meet their clients’ objectives.

This role requires a solid communicator, as you will be responsible for co-ordinating activities with Clients, Business Managers, Engineers, and other key internal/external stakeholders, and will actively seek out opportunities to improve and innovate their product offering.

This is a role that will offer a high level of autonomy, and given this business is still at the start of a large growth trajectory, can offer fantastic long term career prospects. Also, there may also be the opportunity to explore opportunities within the wider £Multi-million group.
