"I was made to feel very welcome at AWP from the start, and was invited to numerous socials which was a great way to meet other people within the company. I am very grateful for my placement. I have come away with so much knowledge and experience, and am hoping to keep in contact with them looking forward."
We are seeking to recruit an experienced Civil Engineering Technician to support our growing workload with a start as soon as possible.
We are an Exeter-based, award-winning civil engineering consultancy providing specialist development planning and infrastructure services to the property industry. Now in our 10th year of operation, our team of transport planners, civil engineers and technicians has grown to over 40 strong, and we are privileged to be working on some of the most prestigious development projects in the south west.
We provide our staff with excellent opportunities to get involved in all aspects of our design work, and all of our technicians are encouraged and assisted to progress their professional qualifications through our ICE approved Training Scheme, with internal and external training opportunities being provided.
During 2022 we have again been awarded Gold accreditation by Investors in People with the assessor commenting that “AWP remains one of the strongest organisations I’ve had the pleasure to work with in relation to supporting people’s career, and encouraging them to learn new skills and achieve ICE qualification status.”
We have both office space at Pynes Hill in Exeter, and a hybrid working policy to provide flexibility and opportunities for remote home working.
AWP is a partnership as the name suggests, and we take pride in sharing our success with everybody that has contributed towards it. That’s why everybody at AWP qualifies for our quarterly profit-related bonus scheme, and we think that’s pretty unique in our industry.
The varied role will focus on providing engineering input to the detailed phase of projects and supporting the team to deliver infrastructure designs for technical approval and construction. You can expect to be working on a number of projects at any given time and you will report to, and be mentored by, one of our management team.
This role is an excellent opportunity for an experienced Technician to gain a wide range of further experience and progress their career in civil engineering consultancy.
With a BTEC level 4 in civil engineering and around 5+ years’ already under your belt working in the industry, you would have gained experience supporting the delivery of infrastructure detail design, and the S38, S278, S104 approvals process. We are looking for people proficient in AutoCAD with good communication skills and an ability to demonstrate effective teamwork. We use design software such as Microdrainage,FLOW, Site 3D and Civils 3D and we can provide training if needed should you have used alternative software in the past.
Ok, sounds good - so where do I apply?
All you need to do is drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org. A copy of your CV, together with a few words about how you could see yourself at AWP, would be great. We can then look to set up an initial chat over the phone, online or in person over a coffee.
