We have an opportunity for an experienced Graduate Structural Engineer to join our highly regarded and award-winning team in Bristol (BS1 4RW), working out of our largest office, overlooking the Harbourside (at the time of writing we are working from home, but there is an appetite to return to the collaborative and social environment that is a Hydrock office, when it is safe to do so).

You will need to be eligible to work in the UK without our sponsorship to have your application considered for this role, as we are not able to provide a Skilled Worker visa for this position.

Please note that this is an open vacancy and you must be available to start within a month. If you are graduating later in 2021, please apply for one of our graduate vacancies later in the year.

Hydrock is an independently owned consultancy of over 550 staff, operating out of 18 offices in the UK. We are one of the UK’s 100 Best Large Companies to Work For and a champion of wellbeing (latest winner of the Health and Wellbeing Leader of the Year award at the NCE100). We believe part of our success is looking after our people and our values help create a unique, dynamic, working environment. They include having fun, giving something back and our families coming first – check out all 10 here (and don’t miss the Challenge Day video on the same page!).

Our national structural engineering business (national cost centre = great collaboration between offices) is led from Bristol, where our largest team is located, with further teams in Birmingham, Gloucester, Cardiff, London, Manchester and Plymouth. You can expect exceptional colleagues to work with and learn from and an interesting variety of challenging projects. You can check out our project portfolio here.
