Geotechnical EngineerThe role shall provide geotechnical support to a wide variety of hydrocarbon projects located both onshore and offshore, and covering all project phases including Concept, FEED, and Detailed Design. Ideal experience for onshore projects will include geotechnical engineering as applied to oil and gas processing plants, LNG plants, refineries, or similar such as heavy industrial or nuclear facilities. Experience should cover specification and interpretation of onshore geotechnical and geophysical survey, design of site preparation earthworks, and design of deep and shallow foundations. Ideal experience for offshore and nearshore projects will include geotechnical engineering as applied to steel jackets, gravity base structures and jetties, or similar experience such as obtained from offshore wind projects. Experience should include specification and interpretation of offshore geotechnical and geophysical survey, and design of piled foundations and of mud-mat foundations. We arelooking for practical problem solvers with strong design experience, who are capable of assuming technical responsibility for the geotechnical aspects of individual projects or groups of projects, working under the technical supervision and guidance of senior geotechnical engineers within the group. It is not expected that candidates will meet all of the above criteria, and candidates with relevant experience gained in other industries or major project developments will be considered, however all candidates should be enthusiastic and willing to learn new skills on the job. This is intended as a long-term staff position to support future development of the group. ESSENTIAL SKILLS Degree qualified. Post-graduate qualification in geotechnical engineering or similar. Chartered Engineer status. Strong geotechnical design experience as applied to major industrial or infrastructure projects. Willingness to travel for short-term overseas assignments. PREFERRED SKILLS Geotechnical experience applied to onshore or offshore hydrocarbon projects. Experience of working at Concept, FEED and Detailed Design phase. International experience covering both design and construction. Experience of design in seismic areas. Familiarity of working with international design codes such as ASCE, ASTM, Eurocodes, ISO, API, NORSOK. Experience of using geotechnical software. Willingness to learn new technical skills.
