Senior to Associate Structural Engineer

We are looking for experienced and talented Structural Engineers from Senior to Associate level to join our Building Structures team in Birmingham, which is currently working with a number of high profile architects on an extremely strong portfolio of Local, National and International projects, including the Paradise Circus redevelopment in the heart of Birmingham, an Energy from Waste facility in Gloucester, High Rise residential buildings in London and a major new hospital in Denmark. 

We have designed a number of high profile projects that are currently under construction or have recently been completed, including the largest Passivhaus building in the UK, significant heritage projects and the conversion of a former printing works in the centre of Birmingham into a 6 storey basement car park supporting a 20 storey mixed use development.  Our projects typically range from £5m to £250m and we work across numerous sectors and building types including Education, Healthcare, Commercial, Residential, Energy from Waste and Heritage.  Our team is leading the development of BIM techniques and strategies within Ramboll and we have expertise in DfMA (Design for Manufacture and Assembly) and Advanced Structural Analysis techniques.

In addition to the above projects we have a number of exciting new opportunities and are therefore looking to recruit talented Engineers at all levels.

Our wealth of experience and exceptional track record mean we work with renowned architects including Herzog & De Meuron, Glenn Howells and Eric Parry; as well as major contractors including Laing O’Rourke, BAM and Carillion who trust Ramboll to design and deliver on some of their most exciting and complex schemes.
