Job Description

Mott MacDonald

We’re a global engineering, management, and development consultancy.
Our purpose is to improve society by considering social outcomes in everything we do, relentlessly focusing on excellence and digital innovation, transforming our clients’ businesses, our communities and employee opportunities.

A fundamental part of this is respecting each person’s differences and striving to meet their needs.

We are proud to be a one of Glassdoor’s top employers to work for in the UK, as well as being recognised as a Top Inclusive Company in the UK.

Our values: Progress, Respect, Integrity, Drive, Excellence.

About the business unit


We help conceive, drive, and implement transport solutions for cities, regions, and asset owners/operators around the globe. From preparing the business case and​ advising on related issues - such as revenue, procurement, and environmental legislation - to delivering the completed infrastructure and helping maintain it. Our planning, engineering, environmental and management skills cover the whole project cycle. We play a major role in developing and delivering the Global Transport Sector Strategy.

Overview of role

Are you a Project Manager looking to change the way we deliver major projects, wanting an opportunity to branch out from your current delivery focus? Our Information Management team here at Mott MacDonald is looking for seasoned Project Managers to join the team to oversee a range of different projects.

Our Information Management team forms part of the Metro & Civils division which encompasses 6 areas of engineering: Foundation & Geotechnics; Information Management; Ports, Coastal & Offshore; Bridges; Special Services and Tunnels. We are looking for Project Managers with engineering delivery experience who can help us to develop our integration between engineering and information management as we seek to improve delivery methodologies.

You’ll be involved with the development of strategies, planning of processes and implementation of tools to improve major project delivery. Sometimes this might be working directly with our clients, other times this might be supporting our internal delivery projects. You will be an advocate for digital ways of working, a promoter of good information management and comfortable working closely with our clients to share our experience.

As Project Manager you will be responsible for ensuring that projects are delivered successfully for the client and for Mott MacDonald, technically, commercially, and financially. This role is critical to our ongoing success. You will be actively involved in selecting and briefing a project team, assessing risk, preparing a project budget and the initial plan of work. You will also be responsible for selecting delivery methodologies, these are often a balance between waterfall and agile.

Your responsibilities will include (but are not limited to):

  • Project management and coordination with key stakeholders and interfacing teams
  • Leading the technical delivery of consultancy services
  • Delivery of a programme of technical solutions as agreed with the client
  • Compliance with the Mott MacDonald management, quality, safety and environmental system requirements
  • Coordinate and manage contract requirements (industry standard & bespoke contracts)
  • Successful management of the client relationship, managing feedback, managing scope change and client expectations

Candidate specification


You will be a seasoned Project Manager with experience in the delivery of multi-disciplinary projects from concept to construction. Ideally you will have previously worked within a design consultancy on major / multiple concurrent complex projects and are comfortable liaising with clients. You understand the impact that information management and digital tools has on the design and construction phase of built environment projects. You understand the design process, design risk management, construction programming, tendering process and quality assurance management. You will need to have strong leadership qualities.

Due to the nature of our business, you’ll be willing to travel internationally for projects when required.

You will also be able to demonstrate the following:

  • A degree in Civil/ Structural Engineering (or equivalent)
  • Chartered with a relevant professional institution (or equivalent)
  • Experience project managing multi-disciplinary projects, ideally within transport and using the ISO 19650 suite of standards
  • Familiarity with industry standard tools and technologies used during the delivery phase
  • Strong communication, team working and problem-solving skills

We put equality, diversity, and inclusion at the heart of our business, seeking to promote fair employment procedures and practices to ensure equal opportunities for all. We encourage individual expression in our workplace and are committed to creating an inclusive environment where everyone feels they can contribute.
