Our purpose is to improve people’s lives through building the facilities and infrastructure that communities need, providing opportunities for our people to learn, grow and progress, working with our supply chain to promote the very best working practice and caring for the environment in which we work.

We do this by holding true to our values, delivering excellence for our clients and the community, being passionate about our role in providing vital services, putting integrity at the heart of our business by doing the right thing, and collaborating with our clients, supply chain and stakeholders to deliver lasting change and long-term value.

As one of the UK’s top principal contractors you’ll have the opportunity to work on some of the UK’s most exciting projects offering you stability as well as the chance to stretch your capabilities and realise long held career goals. You will be joining diverse teams working at a high professional level with exceptional levels of commitment.


Central Engineering Services is an in-house team providing engineering support to the whole of the wider Construction & Investments Division. It acts as an internal consultant so that customers pay for the services provided based on agreed hourly charge-out rates. A key focus of the team is the provision of a high quality service which exceeds customer requirements leading to strong relationships with all parts of the business and generating repeat work.

The services provided by Central Engineering Services include alternative solutions, value engineering, buildability and problem/defect resolution including specification compliance issues. The team also provides design and design checking services for a full range of temporary works requirements from excavations and working platforms to formwork, falsework & scaffolding. Site based TWCs & TWSs are also supported through participation in technical reviews, site visits where required and audits to check compliance with the temporary works procedure.

The core CES team is based at Matlock and there are two smaller satellite teams, one in Solihull and one in Grangemouth..


As Design Engineer, you will interface with a range of stakeholders throughout the Construction & Investments Division at the pre-construction and construction stages of projects. The role will also interface with external stakeholders including consultants, subcontractors and suppliers.

You will;

  • Attend meetings and site visits to discuss CES services for specific tenders and projects.
  • Where necessary assist in the production of design briefs.
  • Prepare and/or check design calculations by other members of the CES team or by external design organisations.
  • Produce and/or supervise the production of drawings, schedules etc. based on the results of design calculations.
  • Ensure that designs and design checks are completed on time and within fee estimates.
  • Ensure that all work is carried out in accordance with CDM 2015 and the Galliford Try Construction Business Management System so that the necessary standards of Safety, Quality & Environmental Management are achieved.
  • Take a proactive approach to own Continuing Professional Development and the Continuing Professional Development of others to maintain and advance own technical capability and that of the CES team as a whole.


We are looking for passion and a willingness to deliver excellence.  If you have experience of working for a contractor, subcontractor, specialist supplier or consultant with good knowledge of structural mechanics and understanding of fundamentals of soil mechanics then I want to hear from you! Obviously you’ll have the usual good stuff such as a degree in civil or structural engineering (2.2 or higher) and good communication and time management skills but we are looking for more than just that, we are looking for someone with a positive, “can do” approach who can work effectively as part of a team committed to their own personal and professional development, if this sound like you then be sure to apply.


In return we offer an opportunity to work on some of the UKs most exciting construction projects, in a fast-paced environment where each day brings new challenges as well as a competitive salary and benefits package including car or car allowance, pension, healthcare, discretionary bonus and 28 days holiday plus bank holidays. We will always consider flexible working hours and arrangements.
