We are seeking an individual with a passion for Ground Penetrating Radar to expand the department further.
Sandberg’s GPR Department comprises a team of surveyors using NDT technology to provide support to the construction industry. The department undertakes surveys using high-tech equipment for various purposes, including concrete mapping (slab/wall thickness, reinforcement details), construction details (structural steelwork), determining the location of chimney flues, voids/buried objects detection and a few more specialised applications requiring particular expertise.
The nature of the work means that the successful applicant will have the opportunity to work on various projects, from building sites to train stations, from warehouses to luxury flats and all manner in between.
Working alongside other experienced GPR surveyors, you will already be experienced in the ways of GPR, but additional training will be provided in our procedures and techniques. Along the way, you will work closely with other departments within the firm and develop your construction knowledge.
This is a perfect position for someone wishing to develop their geophysics/construction background and enjoys the experience of visiting different customer sites. The core of the work will be:
- On-site data acquisition using the GPR equipment
- Data processing using Radan software
- Preparing final reports using AutoCAD and Microsoft Office
This is a full-time position based at our laboratories in Clapham, London, but with a significant proportion of the work site-based around London and beyond. Though this will normally be a Monday to Friday role, there will be occasional work at night and at weekends at overtime rates.
It is important that you are hands-on and willing to learn with training and practical experience of GPR. Some related knowledge of construction is also helpful.
- A related degree (Geophysics/Geology/Construction Related Degree)
- Prior experience with GPR
- Computer literate
- Basic knowledge of AutoCAD or better
- Driving Licence
- An ability to communicate clearly in English, both written and verbal
- CSCS card
- Understanding of building construction
- Experience with topographical surveys (Total Station)
Sandberg is proud to have a community feel and employ staff from a variety of different backgrounds. We are committed to continuing to develop a diverse and inclusive workplace. We welcome and will consider all applications that meet the above requirements.
