A career with Calibro

Senior Flood Risk Consultant

We might just have the perfect opportunity for you in our flood risk team!

Headed up by Patrick Goodey, we’re proud of the capabilities and stringent commitment to accuracy that our Flood Risk & Hydrology team offer. And because of their approach, their workload is increasing and they’re in need of someone special to join them in either of our Bristol or Southampton offices.

Could that person be you?

What you’ll need to succeed

We’re looking for the best. Our mission and our vision for what we want the business to stand for, means that really want to speak to you if you are either already at the top of your game or want to get there.

In this respect, we’d love you to have a degree or similar in a hydrology, physical geography or a flood risk related discipline but its not essential as long as you have the industry experience. In fact, we’ll even provide all the support you’ll need to gain a formal qualification if you don’t already have one.

You should be experienced in supporting a wider team in assessing all sources of flooding, thriving on embracing complex and sometimes intimidating problems. Ideally, this will include understanding of hydrology estimation (e.g., FEH) and experience in using modelling packages such as Flood Modeller, TuFLOW, Microdrainage or similar. You will have proven experience in producing Flood Risk Assessments and surface water drainage strategies through a mix of technical expertise and collaboration with colleagues, project teams and authorities. This includes having excellent analytical and report writing skills so you can evidence your assessments clearly and succinctly. You will be able to use and manipulate software such as GIS, AutoCAD or Site3D to assist you. You should have sound understanding and interpretation of flood risk policy and legislation.

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

Take a look around our culture page to understand the value we place on our people and how we help them to achieve their full potential with clear, structured mentoring, investment and feedback – its an approach founded on the principles of ‘partnership’.

It goes without saying that we always ensure we offer our people a competitive salary – not just to attract you to the business but also to recognise your on-going contribution and capabilities.

We also provide a great pension scheme, a discretionary twice yearly bonus , and various perks and wellbeing initiatives to ensure you are properly looked after during your time with us. Take a look at our ‘22 for You‘ scheme which we are particularly proud of.
