Job Description

Communities around the globe are challenged to find effective ways to manage water throughout the water cycle restoring the water we use to continue sustaining the natural environment. At AECOM, our Water specialists work together worldwide to find innovative solutions to the management of water. We provide technical expertise and solutions for projects across Europe, the Middle East and Africa, in areas such as:

  • Flood Risk Management

  • Hydraulic Modelling and Design (Surface, Potable and Foul)

  • Sustainable Drainage Systems and Water Sensitive Urban Design

  • Mains Infrastructure Design (Surface, Potable and Foul)

  • Non-Infrastructure Design (Pumping Stations, Storage Tanks)

  • Hydrology and Water Resources

Our Civil Engineering graduates gain valuable experience working on a variety of global projects alongside a multitude of different disciplines. Our graduates are encouraged to develop their understanding of many elements within the water industry, such as hydraulic, structural and environmental design through calculations, report writing and use of engineering software. You will work alongside our experienced engineers as you develop these skills within a positive culture where learning and development is actively supported and promoted.

An example project is the North Glasgow Integrated Water Management Scheme, Scottish Canals. Bringing together Scottish Canals, Glasgow City Council and Scottish Water to transform Glasgow’s centuries-old canal network into a modern water management scheme. Marrying digital technology with historic infrastructure, the project created a dynamic new stormwater runoff system for the city which serves several new housing regeneration schemes and has enabled real-time, remote management of the canal’s water levels.

We also support our graduates to pursue their professional development through professional organisations such as ICE or CIWEM. This is further complimented by AECOM’s Graduate Development programme, providing broader development and training and an opportunity to meet with other graduates.

Job Responsibilities will include:

  • Undertake numerical analysis including the use of computer-based programmes to assist with the study of potable, surface and wastewater systems

  • Undertake technical and feasibility studies to appraise the practicability of alternative solutions in aspects such as potable water, foul water, surface water and attenuation requirements, including appropriate calculations

  • Undertake structural analysis and design such as determination of the design situation and load cases, including calculation and use of analysis software

  • Produce designs of water infrastructure such as pump systems and pipe networks with attenuation to safety in design, such as creating a Designer’s Risk Assessment document

  • Produce sketches, check and consolidate final working drawings created by Technicians

  • Keep up-to-date with developments in regulatory legislation and guidelines that may affect design work

  • Working with other team members to undertake technical work, site work, and project management

  • Opportunities for working on site and site visits, to develop wider understanding of how designs are implemented

Qualifications

  • BEng in Civil or Structural Engineering, with a 2:1 classification (or equivalent)

  • MEng in Civil, Structural, or a Water Engineering related MSc (civils) would be an advantage

  • Water related modules would be an advantage

  • Relevant work experience would be an advantage
