We have an ever-increasing workload and are looking for an acoustics consultant, with 2 years’ experience, to help service a growing number of key client projects.

This is a great chance for an enthusiastic acoustician, with a mature outlook, to join our team. Based in the Midlands, you will work on high-profile residential, healthcare, education and commercial property schemes across the UK. Working in a growing team, this is an excellent career-development opportunity for an ambitious and self-motivated individual who is keen to make a difference through innovation and teamwork.

What we’re looking for
Applicants should have a good degree (or equivalent) in an engineering, physical sciences, or mathematics discipline; be a member of the Institute of Acoustics; and be able to demonstrate a proficient, technical understanding of the subject.

They will also have a track record in project management and an ability to build strong client relationships. Ideally, candidates should also have experience working in environmental noise and vibration, in the construction sector.

Key responsibilities and duties
This role requires a flexible approach to working and an ability to manage your own time. It is split 50/50 for site work and office/meetings. You will be working on a range of client-based projects and should expect to spend most of your time conducting acoustic testing and analysing, and reporting on test results. Main activities will include:

  • Undertaking noise surveys and modelling
  • Carrying out project administration
  • Using modelling software to predict noise from a variety of sources
  • Supporting senior consultants

What we offer
The successful candidate can expect a competitive salary package, commensurate with qualifications and experience, (including a company car, bonus, pension scheme, and 20 days annual leave). We also offer opportunities for professional development.

We are committed to providing equality of opportunity in all areas when dealing with staff, whether in recruitment and selection, promotion or training and professional development.
