Due to the continued growth of our team across the UK, MHB is recruiting a Topographical Surveyor to support the delivery of our projects.
The role will be based in Glasgow within the Survey Department although some visits to our other offices may be required. Going forward it is envisaged that this role will be office based with some home working allowed, in line with our policies and operational requirements.
This will predominantly be a site-based role, however there is a degree of office-based activity which will either be based in the Glasgow or Edinburgh office depending on the candidate. Survey work will cover Scotland and other UK locations as required.
The ideal candidate will have at least 3 years’ experience in a similar role (or be degree qualified in a relevant discipline) and be looking for an opportunity for career progression and technical development. Previous survey experience on the operational railway would be an advantage.
