Catchment Modeller / Engineer

Job description

Joining our team, the Catchment Modeller / Engineer will support the Catchment Asset Managers to collate and analyse data from multiple sources to establish catchment risk indicators and then undertake wastewater network problem characterisation and solution optioneering. You will ensure all data and reports, including hydraulic modelling outputs, provide high quality, reliable information.

You’ll be responsible for building new or significantly upgrading existing standard hydraulic models. The Catchment Modeller / Engineer will assist other teams in identifying and evaluating the hydraulic and engineering constraints and assessing the feasibility of outline solutions by challenging traditional ‘hard’ engineered solutions, which are greener and reduce whole life costs.

These solutions support our business focus to deliver on our key outcomes to reduce pollutions to the environment and prevent sewer flooding for our customers.

You will continually review processes and procedures to identify improvements and incorporate new ways of working into routine and project specific tasks.
