Job Vacancy Details

DATE POSTED: January 21, 2020
SALARY: Negotiable plus benefits
START DATE: As soon as a suitable candidate has been found

We are pleased to be able to offer students on a year in industry program the opportunity for an internship in our geotechnical department in Norwich.
Candidates would be based in our Norwich office for up to one year (the commencement and duration can be flexible to suit your needs, but is expected to start during summer 2020), to work on a range of site investigation projects across East Anglia and further afield. The role would be supervised by experienced engineers and include full training in all aspects you may be involved in.
The type of work would generally be a combination of geotechnical investigation and contaminated land assessment. In previous years students have enjoyed involvement in a mixture of site and office based work, including field tasks such as overseeing machine trial pit excavations, supervising drilling boreholes, completing infiltration testing, ground gas monitoring, groundwater sampling and undertaking research of geological, hydrogeological, historical and topographical site information. You will also learn how engineers provide foundation recommendations, advice on ground conditions, soil infiltration and undertake phase one and two contamination assessments.
To be considered for the role, candidates should be part way through an undergraduate or graduate degree in a related subject (e.g. Geotechnical Engineering, Environmental Science, Applied Geology or a related degree), have a full UK driving licence, excellent communications skills (both written and verbal) and a keen interest in learning new skills.
