Job Profile

We are looking for a Senior hydraulic modeller/Flood risk consultant, to join our Cardiff or Bristol office.

This opportunity has resulted from the continued demand for our services including our appointment to the Environment Agency’s Project Delivery Unit (PDU1) in the South West of England, the Welsh Government’s NPS Framework (including Lot 5 - Flood Risk Mapping, Modelling and Analysis, and Lot 6 - Water Management), and opportunities in the Republic of Ireland.

We pride ourselves in providing industry-leading hydrological and flood modelling services across all stages of the project lifecycle.
Our flood risk management projects range from the strategic broad scale to the detailed design of multi-million-pound flood schemes, offering huge diversity and excellent opportunities for technical development and career progression.

This role will offer the successful candidate the opportunity to join a friendly and supportive team of engineers and scientists, in a vibrant multi-disciplinary office, working on a range of built-environment projects for government and private clients.
