The role will include undertaking feasibility and pre-planning assessments/appraisals; preparing, managing and reviewing reports, designs and drawings to to ensure consistently high quality outputs; support the preparation of fee proposals and manage budgets accordingly; and act as a key contact for clients.

Above all else, personality is king in our business. We want you to be a confident and self-motivated individual with strong interpersonal and communication skills.

What you’ll get in return

This is not only a great opportunity to work hand-in-hand with the Head of Infrastructure and the rest of the team on exciting and high quality infrastructure projects, but one where you will have a real opportunity to help influence the shape and character of the team’s expansion over the coming years.
