  1. Site Engineer

What does a site engineer do?

Site engineers have similar jobs to construction (site) managers on a construction project. They manage parts of a construction project (also known as packages), providing technical advice, supervising staff on site and ensuring that their packages are completed on time and within budget.

The main difference between site managers and site engineers is that site engineers tend to have a more specific, technical knowledge and expertise. Site engineers typically come from a civil, structural, geotechnical, building services, mechanical or electrical engineering background and manage packages related to those areas.

Key tasks of the job include:

  • managing parts of construction projects
  • overseeing building work
  • undertaking surveys
  • setting out sites and organising facilities
  • checking technical designs and drawings to ensure that they are followed correctly
  • supervising contracted staff
  • ensuring projects meet agreed specifications, budgets or timescales
  • liaising with clients, subcontractors and other professional staff, especially quantity surveyors and the overall project manager
  • providing technical advice and solving problems on site
  • preparing site reports and filling in other paperwork
  • liaising with quantity surveyors about the ordering and negotiating the price of materials
  • ensuring that health and safety and sustainability policies and legislation are adhered to

 

Site engineers work out on a construction site in all weathers and tend to work on one project at a time. Depending on the location of the project, they might need to relocate or complete a lengthy commute.

Typical employers of site engineers:

  • Construction companies and specialist civil engineering companies (contractors)
  • Public sector organisations – a few vacancies
  • Vacancies are advertised online on TARGETjobs, individual construction companies’ websites and careers service websites. You can also find jobs advertised in national newspapers and via professional bodies, such as the Institution of Civil Engineers, the Institution of Structural Engineers and the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers.

Qualifications and training required:

There are routes into a career as a site engineer for both university graduates and school leavers. Graduates will need an accredited degree in engineering: usually civil, structural, geotechnical, mechanical, electrical or building services. While in their graduate role, graduates will work towards a professional qualification with the most appropriate professional body (such as the Institution of Civil Bodies): this will either be incorporated or chartered status, depending on whether they have a BEng or an MEng/MSc.

Site engineer applicants are more attractive to graduate recruiters if they have some work experience within the construction industry . The most common types of industry work experience are years in industry as part of a sandwich degree course or summer placements. Find out more about getting work experience in construction.

Key skills for site engineers:

  • Commercial awareness – an understanding of how your actions can affect profitability of a project
  • Team working and communication
  • Technical skills
  • An eye for detail
  • Problem solving
  • Management skills
  1. Project Administrator

  • Run checks on registers

 

We're looking for:

 

  • Previous experience of Cost Clerk procedures and project support
  • Computer knowledge and efficiency, including Microsoft Office products
  • Ability to maintain discretion and confidentiality at all times
  • The ability to communicate at all levels, both verbally and through written correspondence?

 

 

  1. Civil Engineer

Civil engineers design, plan and oversee construction projects such as railways and roads.

Most civil engineers specialise in a type of project.

What does a civil engineer do?

Civil engineers create, improve and protect the environment in which we live. They plan, design and oversee construction and maintenance of building structures and infrastructure, such as roads, railways, airports, bridges, harbours, dams, irrigation projects, power plants, and water and sewerage systems. They also design and build tall buildings and large structures that can withstand all weather conditions.

Generally, civil engineers fall into two types: consulting engineers and contracting engineers. Consultants are responsible for the design work of projects and work predominantly in an office. Contractors then take the designs and implement them during construction. Contractors work on site, managing the construction of the structure.

 

Depending on whether you are a contractor or a consultant, work activities can include:

  • undertaking technical and feasibility studies including site investigations
  • using a range of computer software for developing detailed designs
  • undertaking complex calculations
  • liaising with clients and a variety of professionals including architects and subcontractors
  • compiling job specs and supervising tendering procedures
  • resolving design and development problems
  • managing budgets and project resources
  • scheduling material and equipment purchases and deliveries
  • making sure the project complies with legal requirements, especially health and safety
  • assessing the sustainability and environmental impact of projects
  • ensuring projects run smoothly and structures are completed within budget and on time
  • Working hours for consulting civil engineers are generally normal office hours, with some extra hours and weekend work close to project deadlines. Contractors, on the other hand, often work shifts and weekends and are outside in all weathers.

Typical employers of civil engineers

  • Construction companies (both consultants and contractors)
  • Local authorities and government departments
  • Rail companies
  • Utility companies

Civil engineers often specialise in a project or discipline, such as coastal/marine, power, water and transport. Find out more about the key disciplines and specialisms within civil engineering here. Graduates will often apply directly to a scheme in one of these areas.

 

Qualifications and training required

Graduates will need a degree in civil engineering accredited by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE). You are then expected to work towards one of two professionally recognised qualifications with the ICE. If you have completed a BEng, you can gain an incorporated engineer (IEng) status. If you completed either an MEng or a BEng plus a masters, you can acquire chartered engineer (CEng) status. Both titles will help career prospects, but chartered engineers are often more sought after by employers. For more information, see our article on achieving chartered status.

If you are applying for a graduate role within civil engineering, it will greatly help your career prospects if you have gained work experience during a year-in-industry or summer placement. Some employers offer sponsorship and a job offer to students who have impressed them during work experience.

 

Key skills for civil engineers

Employers seek graduates who are commercially aware and capable of working well within a team environment. Other key skills include:

  • sound mathematical, scientific and IT skills
  • the ability to think methodically and to manage projects
  • problem-solving skills
  • ability to work to deadlines and within budgets
  • ability to maintain an overview of entire projects while continuing to attend to detailed technicalities
  • excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • negotiating, supervisory and leadership skills
  • complete knowledge of relevant legislation

Resident Engineers supervise the planning, coordination and implementation of construction projects. The types of projects vary, ranging from constructing bridges to the development of roads and highways. They ensure the projects adhere to all plans and regulations and that safety measures are appropriately taken. A typical day may take place onsite of the current project or in an office preparing for a project. Resident Engineers are sometimes referred to as civil engineers.

 

Resident Engineers lead projects and supervise staff, but they report to a contractor or general manager. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the civil engineering sector is expected to see a job increase of 8 percent through 2024. This will add an estimated 23,600 jobs to this sector during this period.
