UXO Risk Assessor

We are looking to recruit candidates with strong analytical and reporting skills to form part of our growing Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) department. If you are interested in history, risk assessment, research, GIS mapping, database analysis, engineering, site development, or simply want an opportunity to work in a unique and challenging industry, then this could be the perfect job for you.

 

The successful candidate will initially be involved in undertaking the historical research and mapping that underpins our risk assessment reports, which are used by a wide variety of developers to ensure that their construction 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 dependent on archival research and therefore experience in this field is desirable, although further relevant training will be provided.

 

The ideal candidate will demonstrate 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.   As well as candidates with experience in research disciplines, those with a background in GIS mapping, programming, engineering, geology or other technical fields would be well-placed to succeed in this role.

There is significant scope for progression depending on your individual strengths and ambitions, with departmental opportunities in project management, risk mitigation, client liaison, GIS mapping, commercial tendering and authoring industry guidance amongst other interesting opportunities.

 

Further information about what we do is available at our dedicated UXO website: www.zeticaUXO.com

 

Salary is dependent on relevant skills and experience.

 

Benefits include a health cash plan, profit share scheme and company pension.

Experienced Geophysicists

As the UKs largest independent geophysical specialist, we are involved in some of the country’s biggest, challenging and most interesting projects.

 

We own an exceptional range of geophysical equipment maintained by a dedicated equipment team and electronics specialists, and offer a unique opportunity to gain experience in a range of market sectors.

 

Core techniques we employ comprise:

  • Seismics including surface wave (MASW and CSWS), refraction, reflection, and borehole (crosshole and downhole).
  • Electrical methods including resistivity (ERI and soundings), self-potential and IP, and electromagnetic (fixed frequency, broadband multifrequency, TDEM, GPR, RFL).
  • Ground penetrating radar (GPR) including a range of impulse, stepped frequency and frequency modulated continuous wave systems deployed as single, dual, or high density arrays.
  • Magnetics including total field and gradiometer sensor arrays.
  • Microgravity

 

We apply these tools for ground investigations across a variety of sectors and for clients large and small.

 

We work with companies, government departments and private organisations in the renewables, road, rail, gas, water, electricity, waste-water, airports, ports, flood protection, housing, forestry, construction, ecology/environment, nuclear, defence, waterways, urban planning, coastal, nearshore and marine sectors.

 

If you consider variety to be the spice of geophysical life then a scan of typical applications should send you reaching for the ‘Send CV’ button. Targets for our geophysical investigations include mapping geology, groundwater, infilled ground, natural and man-made voids, infrastructure integrity, pavement and trackbed construction/condition, landfill characterisation, depth to bedrock, rock rippability, soil stiffness, archaeology, unexploded ordnance, buried services and more.

 

Training is provided in the use of equipment as well as in-house and external data processing software. Examples of specialist software we routinely use includes Oasis montaj, GPR Slice, Examiner, GeoGiga, Res2DInv, ParkSeis, SurfSeis, AutoCAD Civils 3D and more.

 

You will learn from experienced Project and Senior Geophysicists, with both formal and on-the-job training, developing your skills in the whole process of data acquisition, data processing, analysis, interpretation and reporting.

 

We structure projects to provide individuals with the opportunity to see a project through all its stages, from initial planning through to final reporting and as you progress, follow-up with the customer.

 

All projects are supported by our equipment team, systems engineers, logistics support team and SHEQ team, leaving you to focus on the important task of collecting high quality data safely and efficiently, for analysis and reporting.

Speculative Roles

 

 

 

 

 

 

Geophysical Technician (Speculative)

We welcome speculative applications to join our growing near-surface geophysics and utility services survey team. We have a range of potential posts accommodating different levels of experience.

 

We are looking for people with a proven track record in geophysical investigations for environmental or engineering applications and/or utility services detection and mapping. The role of geophysical technician will involve primarily field work with data QC and some data processing to final products.

 

You will ideally have some experience in techniques such as ground penetrating radar (GPR), radio frequency location (RFL), electromagnetics (EM), and magnetometry.  Other methods will be introduced and full training is offered on our geophysical test site by experienced geophysicists.

 

We undertake a broad range of projects including surveys for transport infrastructure and for engineering, geotechnical, geological and environmental purposes, as well as unexploded ordnance (UXO) and utility services detection.  You will have ample opportunity to expand your knowledge and progress your career within a friendly and supportive team.

 

You will be based at our custom built office in Eynsham, Oxfordshire. Most of your work will relate to UK projects, but the opportunity to be involved in international projects is likely to arise. A valid UK driving licence is essential.
