Technician/Senior Technician/Engineer – Minor Improvements

Salary: Competitive

BEAR Scotland is a leading provider of highways maintenance services across Scotland. We manage and maintain over 2,500km of trunk road network, tackling a multitude of interesting and challenging tasks of varying complexity to keep Scotland moving.

We take pride in offering a dedicated and flexible approach such that we deliver on our client’s needs and aspirations, and this is underpinned by recruitment, development, and retention of a locally based workforce.

Due to an increasing workload, opportunities have arisen to join our North West Unit Minor Improvements team.

The Minor Improvements team delivers a wide range of projects on the trunk road network including road cross section improvement, public transport infrastructure, vehicle restraint system, road signage and NMU improvement schemes. In addition, the team supports the resolution of network operation issues, managing geotechnical assets and supporting incident management, which can range from small rockfall incidents to large scale landslide emergencies and mitigation works.

As a Technician/Senior Technician/Engineer you will be responsible for the design and delivery of a diverse range of schemes. Reporting to the Senior Engineer, a good working knowledge of relevant road design standards, legislation and guidance notes, including the Design Manual for Roads and Bridges, CDM2015 and the ability to use AutoCAD software are essential to the role. A good understanding of contractual and commercial management would also be desirable.

As a Senior Engineer reporting to the Minor Improvements Manager you will take responsibility for a small team of designers managing their workload and delivery of a large programme of varied projects. You will assist the MI Manager with financial and programme management both during the current financial year and planning ahead for the 3year work programme.  This is a client facing role with regular meetings with our client team in Transport Scotland.

A valid driving licence, good communication skills and a collaborative and flexible approach to workload is also necessary for either role.

Candidates shall be professionally qualified or alternatively shall be actively working towards this. BEAR operate an ICE approved training scheme and offer all the support required to advice your career and professional qualifications.
