Geophysics Estimator

We are looking for an enthusiastic, UK-based person with geophysics experience to join our team at Eynsham in Oxfordshire. The job title is ‘Senior Estimator’, but the role is far more interesting, challenging and immersive!

 

You will be part of a client focused team, responsible for drafting and issuing proposals, and helping to design and clearly communicate solutions to sometimes complex in-ground and infrastructure ground investigation challenges.

 

The role would suit someone with a head for figures, who has experience in engineering or environmental geophysics but is looking for a change to more regular hours and being office based.

 

You will need to be a good communicator, numerate and IT literate, familiar with Microsoft Office especially Excel and Word. a quick learner, and have confidence dealing with customers. You will work closely with Zetica’s Projects Manager, Managing Director, and CEO.

 

 

Experience in site investigation, geophysics, construction or similar fields is an advantage, particularly any tendering/commercial experience. You will be judged by your ability to ensure all tender submissions are feasible and profitable.

 

Further requirements include maintaining a register of key assumptions within each estimate, providing indicative pricing support for business development and obtaining feedback from site teams on estimating adequacy and current costs.

 

Salary is dependent on relevant experience. Incentives include our profit share scheme, pension and health cash plan.

 

If you think this is a role for you, then please send your CV with a covering email/letter to recruitment@zetica.com.

Systems Engineer

We are looking for an enthusiastic person to join our small team in Long Hanborough near Oxford.

 

You will be involved in the earliest stages of new products design and support of established products.

 

We need somebody who can design mechanisms, electronic circuits and undertake some embedded programming.

 

You may also be involved in some active use or support of the equipment as part of our projects, so you must have a valid UK driver’s licence and a passport with a willingness to travel, often at short notice, nationally as well as internationally.

 

We offer competitive salaries subject to experience and other benefits including a health cash plan.

 

If you would like to join our team, please send your CV and a covering letter explaining how you think your previous experience will be useful in our company to recruitment@zetica.com FAO Mrs Annie McGuire.

Interested in Military History?

We are looking to recruit researchers with an interest in history (particularly military history) to form part of our growing Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) department.

 

The successful candidate will be involved in undertaking the historical research that underpins our risk assessment reports, which are used by a wide variety of developers to ensure that their site works can go ahead safely.

 

As such, you will be required to display a tenacity in the commercial context of tight deadlines, ensuring that no information of any significance is overlooked and be able to communicate in a clear and concise manner when drafting reports.  The role is heavily dependent on archival research and therefore experience in this field is essential, although further relevant training will be provided.

This role would suit a local resident with the capability and desire to fulfil project deadlines to the highest standard possible, in the process maintaining Zetica’s reputation as the UK leaders of the UXO industry.  The role is available immediately.

 

Salary is £20,000 to £25,000 pa depending on experience. Benefits include a health cash scheme and pension.

 

Please send a covering letter and CV to Mrs Annie McGuire at:recruitment@zetica.com

Junior C# C++ Programmer

Please send a covering letter and CV to recruitment@zetica.com FAO Mrs Annie McGuire.

Experienced Geophysicist, Geophysical Site Technicians, Site Surveyors

We welcome speculative applications to join us at all levels within our company.  We welcome persons from a range of backgrounds and a variety of experience, whether predominantly field, office or academia based.  Depending on experience and role, typically you will be expected to undertake site surveys from start to finish with appropriate levels of training provided.  You will be dealing with customers on a regular basis, liaising with office staff, and on occasion dealing with the public.  A professional approach to work ethic and communication is therefore extremely important.

You must be in possession of a valid driver’s licence as the job involves a lot of travelling.

 

We offer competitive salaries and other benefits such as health insurance, health cash plan and other bonus schemes.
