Job Profile

We are looking for a highly motivated senior/principal maritime engineer to join our growing maritime team in Scotland, where we are providing project management, design and supervisory services to a range of private and public sector clients on a variety of maritime projects, together with supporting our power, water and flooding teams on a range of projects.

In addition across Mott MacDonald we are growing and developing our maritime business on a global basis. As a result there will be opportunities to provide civil / structural input to projects in other regions.

Recent and current projects include a ferry berth extension, marina projects, flood alleviation schemes, coast protection works, linkspan works, outfall works and cooling water intake/outfall studies.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate, and take positive steps to create an inclusive culture. This position can be offered on either a full-time or a part-time basis.

Job Description

You will contribute to bidding and winning work, using your knowledge of clients and your understanding of the technical requirements and risks associated with the prospects.
