About the job

Job Title: Senior CDM Consultant

Location: London

Closing Date: 24/3/2022

Arup is an independent firm of designers, planners, engineers, consultants, and technical specialists offering a broad range of professional services. Through our work, we make a positive difference in the world.

The Health & Safety (H&S) consultancy team in PPM London provides professional health, safety and CDM services to a range of external and internal clients. Construction-related H&S and CDM services provided by the team are of strategic importance to design commissions undertaken by Arup, ensuring that the company discharges its statutory CDM obligations as a Designer and/or Principal Designer. Supporting national infrastructure projects and major buildings commissions, the team also provides specialist services to energy and renewables projects, a growth sector for Arup.

Readily available, professionally qualified resources are essential to delivering pipeline projects. As well as exporting time the team provides a range of safety, health and CDM services to its client base. Away from fee-earning work, professionally qualified H&S resources are essential to evidence Arup’s ‘competency’ for prequalification and tender questionnaires for public sector work (and many private sector opportunities).

The demands on the PPM H&S team to deliver projects continues to rise, and requests to support forthcoming projects will see current resources stretched further. We seek to recruit a CDM expert ideally experienced in major projects, including infrastructure (wind power/ renewables/hydrogen/heat), science and technology (data centres/comms) and engineering (rail). The post will be advertised both internally and externally.
