Akton Recruitment are currently working with an up and coming engineering consultancy to recruit a number of CAD technicians at all levels. Salary will be completely negotiable DOE. Please note our client is based outside the City Centre to the South West making a commute from Leeds, Wakefield and Nottingham unviable in the long term. Candidates would need to be based around Sheffield, South East Manchester or willing to relocate.

We are an award-winning firm of Consulting Engineers providing professional quality services in all areas of construction across the country since 1972. Our 90-strong staff team is based at offices in Sheffield.

We deliver works from small and medium projects to larger schemes in excess of £100 million, including:

We are proud of our core values of quality, high performance, and professionalism. It is this level of service which our clients expect from us, and which we continue to deliver in the ever-competitive, fast-moving world of Civil and Structural Engineering. Projects are led by Directors and Associates working closely with Engineers and Technicians to deliver timely, efficient and effective solutions to our clients. Visit our projects pages for examples of some of our work.

Our vision is to continue to provide an excellent working environment for our staff, and to maintain standards of excellence for our clients.

What we're looking for:
We are looking for candidates with three years plus experience with a relevant Level 3-6 qualification such as ONC, HNC and HND alongside practical professional experience. You should be competent in using AutoCAD and working knowledge of REVIT. Our CAD Technicians support all disciplines within civil engineering so we would be interested to see candidates with experience in General Arrangements/ Structural Layouts and details in Steel, Concrete, Timber and Domestic, and RC Detailing on medium to large structures.

Working for our client:
We review our salaries twice a year (January & July) and reward staff based on merit. We offer a 4% contributory pension scheme and 2 x life insurance alongside a generous holiday allowance (starting at 24 days but up to 26 days after 5 years) with the option to buy up to 3 days additional holiday as needed. We have flexible start and finish times to the working day and offer a contractual enhanced sick pay scheme. We also offer a discounted health cash plan which can assist with a number of every day medical costs and a cycle to work scheme.
