As one of the world’s leading engineering, professional services and technical consultancy firms, at WSP, we’re passionate about the big questions. And big answers, naturally. For us that’s all about reaching beyond the expected to do work that’ll make a profound impact felt long into the future.
The Belfast Highways team is seeking an Engineer with experience in the Highways Sector to be part of a growing team working on exciting projects.
We are looking for a logical thinker with the responsibility for adequacy of design, compliance with standards and legislation, driving technical excellence within the team and developing fit-for-purpose design solutions appropriate for our broad client base.

Brainstorming ideas with the team to identify constraints and agree how best to solve problems
Co-ordinating inputs and outputs with environmental colleagues and other disciplines to produce an integrated design
With an awareness of how your tasks fit in to the overall project be accountable and responsible for delivery and to a high standard
Guiding and mentoring team members to broaden and deepen your understanding of a subject or design issue
Explaining design and decisions to senior colleagues as part of a challenge and review process
Taking into consideration the views of others challenge and innovate to develop better ways of working
We'd love to hear from you if you have:
Master’s or Bachelor’s degree in a relevant subject
Post graduate experience in highways and infrastructure
Be passionate with the curiosity and creativity to solve problems
Confidence to seek clarification of instructions and work scope
