Over the last couple of years, Yorkshire has been relatively quiet in terms of infrastructure development. The good news is that this is all about to change. We are working with the civil engineering contractor that is likely to be busiest over the next few years in the region and they have highlighted a number of vacancies that they are going to have to fill if they're going to successfully deliver on their commitments. The office location for these roles will be Leeds.

One of the roles is for a Section Engineer and we are looking for candidates with drive to be the best they can be. You should be qualified to degree level as a minimum and have experience of working for a main contractor on highway infrastructure schemes. In terms of duties and responsibilities you will be required to set out for roads, kerbs, drainage, ducting, structures, etc… There will also be supervisory responsibilities in respect of trades and labour and a requirement to keep records and complete site diaries. It will also be your responsibility to supervise and act as a mentor to the more junior Engineers working in your section.

To be considered for the role you should hold the relevant academic qualification mentioned above and have demonstrable and current experience within civil engineering as a Site Engineer. Ideally you will have gained that experience working for a Tier 1 contractor.
