Principal Engineer (Engineering Manager)
Are you a principal engineer with experience of leading multi-disciplinary offshore structure design projects and looking to work in the exciting offshore renewables industry? This could be the role for you.
At Atkins, we invest in people as one of the world’s leading engineering and design consultancies. Our philosophy is to help our people navigate a career path which enables them to achieve their ambitions. We offer flexible, rewarding work packages tailored towards career progression, which are founded on the principles of growth, ambition and excellence.
Our global Resources business is delivering engineering, design and consultancy solutions to the oil and gas, renewables, electrical generation, transmission and distribution sectors all over the world. People join us because they share a desire to be at the forefront of the energy sector and deliver outstanding projects. We empower our people to be the professional individuals they want to be, working on projects they feel proud of, making a different to the world they live in and the legacy they leave behind.
With the COVID-19 pandemic, 2020 has been unprecedented in the challenges that the world and the offshore industry has faced. Despite these challenges, the industry remains a key sector to deliver global climate targets and to provide low carbon energy for future generations, and as such we are delighted to re-start our recruitment campaign to attract the best talent into Atkins.
The past few months have also highlighted what a truly global business we are, with our use of digital collaboration platforms enabling globally diverse teams to continue delivering for our clients no matter where staff are based. Our well-established flexible working practices and digital approach have proven that having a positive work life balance is achievable even in the most challenging of times, making Atkins a great place to develop your career. Although the future remains uncertain, the tools, systems and support available to you upon joining will enable a successful, remote induction into the business and will enhance your ability to work flexibly and remotely if required.
Atkins’ offshore engineering capability dates back to the 1970’s and we have been at the forefront of the market ever since. Much of our capability originated in the oil and gas sector, and we are still heavily involved in this area. However, we have successfully transferred many of our skills onto a growing number of fixed and floating offshore renewables projects.
Due to continued growth in projects, an opportunity exists for an Engineering Manager to join our Resources team based at our offices in Bristol, Epsom or London, working with other talented minds on concept, FEED and detailed design of major offshore wind assets together with developing innovative solutions for repair and upgrades.

You will also present your work to clients through reports and presentations.
You will be comfortable working on and leading a range of structural engineering design and analysis projects, either with local colleagues or working as part of a wider multi-disciplinary team located across different offices. You will deliver high quality technical work, ensure compliance with relevant codes and standards as well as internal best practice procedures and contribute to continual development of the design approach and methodology.
With excellent communication, stakeholder management and influencing skills, you will be able to build relationships effectively and assist in winning work from new and existing clients.
Comfortable at leading tasks, you are keen to support, mentor and develop the capability of the team. You are also a motivator and take personal responsibility in achieving the best from the team to ensure client satisfaction. You are comfortable and adaptable to working in new and changing environments. You have good attention to detail and are able to make sound judgements under pressure.
You have a strong background in offshore structural engineering with the following minimum qualifications:
- Engineering degree, honours or equivalent in civil, mechanical, structural, naval architecture or similar
- Chartered Engineer with a recognised engineering institution;
You will also have a range of the following desirable experience:
- Have solid experience in the offshore consultancy industry including demonstrable experience in the Offshore Wind Sector or similar offshore environment.
