The Role:

As a forward-thinking in-house business unit, Hampshire Engineering Services offers a range of services to the County Council and other public authorities. Our Bridge Design Teams are looking for highly motivated and technically strong Senior Bridge Engineers to be involved in the delivery of challenging bridge design and maintenance schemes. We have a great team environment, and we support and develop our engineers, so they are continuously developing their skills. 


Working in the Bridge Design Teams, you will take autonomy of your own work and be responsible of all aspects of the project whether this is a bridge assessment, maintenance, strengthening or replacement scheme. You should have a thorough understanding of structural behaviour and the application of relevant design and assessment standards. Knowledge of construction methods and contract procedures would be an advantage.


We have recently completed a £5.5M bridge replacement scheme in the New Forest and our current projects include design of a new integral two span continuous steel composite deck bridge as part of a bypass route (£26M scheme), a £1.4M bridge deck replacement in Winchester, a £25M refurbishment scheme for 4 major structures spanning the river Test and Network Rail tracks, and several small bridge and footbridge deck strengthening and replacement schemes.


We are maintaining over 1750 structures of all types of structural form, from single or multi span brick arches to Grade II listed cast iron bridges as well as modern steel and reinforced concrete bridges and retaining walls. Future work will include inspection for assessment, structural assessments, strengthening and replacement schemes to ensure all our structures remain open to highway users and in a serviceable condition.  In addition, we provide technical support to external clients, developers, contractors, and other local authorities.


Within your application please demonstrate how you meet the essential qualifications, knowledge, skills and experience as specified in the below job description and person specification document linked below.

What we can offer you:

We offer challenging and rewarding work – from small bridge strengthening schemes to multi-million design and repair schemes and the opportunity to enhance your skills and broaden your technical capabilities.
