Graduate Structural Investigation Engineers– Hemel Hempstead


An opportunity has become available for two Engineers to join the team in Hemel Hempstead.


This is an exciting opportunity for someone with the desire to embark on a career within the investigative engineering sector. Key responsibilities will include:

  • Planning and undertaking surveying, investigation, sampling and testing of structures and construction materials on sites across the UK.
  • Liaising with clients and preparing inspection/testing programmes.
  • Managing projects to achieve time and cost budget targets.
  • Analysing inspection and test data and preparing interpretative technical reports.

Desired experience


Applicants should have a sound engineering degree and will be able to demonstrate knowledge of design/assessment processes for buildings and structures.  An awareness of health and safety issues is vital.


The role would suit both recently graduated engineers and those with previous experience in the sector, for example recently qualified civil engineers wishing to embark on or widen a career within the inspection/investigation field.


Candidates should be capable of working within a construction site environment and for carrying out work within confined spaces and for working at heights.  Full training will be provided for these specific access-related disciplines. Manual handling and physical testing/inspection methods will be routinely expected; therefore candidates must be physically fit.  Duties will also involve general equipment maintenance.  Occasional staying away from home trips will be necessary in locations throughout the UK.


The nature of the work involved will require a large amount of site work on a wide range of buildings and structures.  We would therefore anticipate that this role would be suited to individuals who enjoy working outside the office for at least 50% of their working week.


Person specification 

  • Having awareness of safety and health issues.
  • Being physically fit and able to occasionally work at heights and within confined spaces.
  • Having sound mathematical, technical, practical and report writing skills.
  • Ability to think methodically, to design, plan and manage projects.
  • Having a sound knowledge of design/assessment processes for buildings and structures.
  • Being able to work with a team.
  • Having excellent interpersonal abilities.
  • Having excellent verbal and written communication skills.
  • Having widespread knowledge of computerised applications and equipment.

Salary and benefits:  

  • £commensurate with experience
  • Contributory Pension Scheme
  • A flexible benefits programme including the option to buy additional holidays, childcare voucher and private health care
  • Regular training and career development 

All candidates applying for positions with RSK Group must be eligible to work in the UK/European Economic Area. Candidates should confirm this when applying.
