The Company encourages every Operational team member to have the chance to achieve chartered status with the Geological Society.

To assist in this aim, the company provides information relating to chartership and supports those wishing to achieve chartered status.



As part of both the requirements for chartership as well as longer term development, we recognise there is a need to demonstrate an ongoing commitment to the profession, and encourage you to formally record all the training and learning events that you attend.

This formal record can either be completed via the Geological Society or Institution of Civil Engineers online CPD record systems or by keeping your own detailed record.

The company will help employees to achieve the requisite number of hours of CPD per year.

Soil Engineering is committed to equal opportunities in employment with the aim of ensuring that everyone who applies to work for us receives fair treatment. We positively encourage applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates regardless of age, disability, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion or belief and pregnancy/maternity.
