​AtkinsRéalis is playing a leading role in the worldwide drive to decarbonise our energy networks. We have a rapidly growing portfolio of prestigious career-enhancing seismic geotechnical projects in the UK and internationally, including Sizewell ‘C’, SMR, next generation reactor projects, and large-scale defence-related developments.

 The successful candidates will be expected to hold a pivotal leadership role in our Geotechnical and Numerical Modelling Technical Disciplines. These form the core of our technical capability, ensuring that AtkinsRéalis continues to push the envelope of our geotechnical design and modelling as clients continually demand more from us.

  • Experience in leading numerical modelling teams with advanced numerical modelling software (e.g., FLAC / FLAC3D, PLAXIS 2D / 3D etc) and analyzing results.
  • Detailed understanding of advanced constitutive soil models, parameter selection for such models, soil-structure interaction and experience of numerical modelling software (FLAC / FLAC3D, PLAXIS 2D / 3D etc) in addition to standard geotechnical software.
  • Experience in validation of geotechnical numerical analysis and numerical model calibration.
  • Experience in managing the process of geotechnical numerical analysis within an interdisciplinary project environment.
  • Capability to drive digital innovation and further AtkinsRéalis’ capability in advanced geotechnical analysis and design.
  • Excellent communication skills and confidence to liaise with clients and engineers from other disciplines.
  • Excellent report writing skills with the ability to manage the delivery of exemplary written documents and review the work of colleagues.
  • A willingness to travel on short assignments both within the UK and overseas.
  • A valid UK driving licence.
