Are you an aspiring design engineer looking to make a difference to the world around you? Do you want the chance to grow, learn, and be supported by industry leaders? This ever-changing world will be shaped by the buildings put into it; and we know it’s often the newest minds who have the brightest ideas.

The Role

These days, engineering is a lot more than pipes and wires; we look at the building as a whole and are involved in every stage, from initial client discussions right through to construction and even the building’s ongoing performance. We collaborate with colleagues, architects and other construction professionals, playing a critical role in every building’s design.

What can we offer you?

As a leading international firm of consulting engineers, we didn’t build a 150-year legacy by standing still. The built environment is where our design-led work can carve out a better future for the planet and its people. For us, it’s about putting heart, soul, innovation and sustainability into the buildings we work on. You will receive the best training and development through our Initial Professional Development scheme, which is accredited by all three of our governing bodies in the industry. We recently won the IET long running scheme award recognising 25 years of continuous accreditation. We are committed to the ongoing professional development of our graduates and support you towards achieving Chartered Engineer or incorporated Engineer status.

What could you be part of?

These days, engineering is a lot more than pipes and wires; we look at the building as a whole and are involved in every stage, from initial client discussions right through to construction and even the building’s ongoing performance. We collaborate with colleagues, architects and other construction professionals, playing a critical role in every building’s design.

Façade Access is one of our specialist groups, providing expertise on all aspects of man access and material lifting for buildings using the best traditional and modern technologies for new, refurbished and occupied premises. As façades become ever more complex with overhangs, protrusions and non-vertical lines, maintenance becomes an increasingly more challenging process. Our efficient maintenance and access designs provide the ideal solutions for complex projects.

What might you be doing?

As a graduate façade access design engineer, your day-to-day tasks will vary, as we’ll expose you to all aspects of our work so you can discover what suits you. You could produce detailed designs and drawings, use the latest computer modelling software, undertake site surveys, or research technologies and systems. Communicating will span all of these, as we regularly liaise with project teams, meet clients or end users, and attend collaborative meetings.

Why does our work make a difference?

Our projects cover almost every sector – from healthcare, residential and retail, to defence, arts & heritage and education – ranging from small studies and reports to large-scale developments valued at more than £4billion.

What are we looking for?

  • An expected or achieved 2.1 or above IET, IMechE or CIBSE accredited degree or equivalent qualification in Design Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Building Services, Architectural Engineering, Product Design, Mechatronics or similar with a real interest in spatial design and problem solving.
  • A masters or other relevant post graduate qualification is an advantage.
  • Previous placement or work experience in spatial design or analysis of mechanical systems is an advantage.
  • An understanding of CAD or similar modelling software is essential.
  • Excellent communication, analytical and organisational skills.
  • Ability to work in a team environment and independently.
  • A friendly, ambitious and confident individual with a flexible and resilient approach.

About Hoare Lea

For over 150 years, we have been at the forefront of engineering design for the built environment. We specialise in mechanical, electrical and public health (MEP) engineering, offering a full range of design services, and as an independent partnership, we’re the largest firm of consulting engineers of our kind in the UK. We’re focused on growth, both in the UK and overseas, and have an impressive project portfolio covering everything from simple feasibility studies to some of the biggest schemes in the world.

We stick to what we’re good at, and encourage all of our people to influence the way things are done. We’re large enough to provide stability and opportunity, and small enough to recognise our people as individuals; this has led to a culture of flexibility, individualism and organic growth. We have high levels of employee retention because our people like working for us, and many of them are the most skilled and experienced in the industry.

Our long-established client relationships and reputation for quality mean that most of our business is repeat. We recently won the Collaborative Working Partnership Award in the 2017 CIBSE Building Performance Awards, and have been voted one of the top building services engineers to work with by ‘Building Design’ Magazine for the last two years.
