Job Description

Our Buried Utilities team sits within our Geophysics team. It is a growing team who operate across all sectors of the engineering industry, primarily in the UK but have had teams on site in almost all continents globally. We work under the umbrella of RAM (Rail Asset Management) which as well as specialist rail teams, includes other cross discipline teams like GI and Geospatial Engineering, based primarily out of our Nottingham office where we have equipment, fleet and laboratory facilities to support our field operations.

Our projects typically form small (but we like to think crucial) parts of the many major infrastructure projects which AECOM work on, primarily providing in-house surveys and investigations (but also providing management of contractors) and specialist advice with an emphasis on collaboration to provide our clients with solutions which best suit their needs.

Your primary role will be to undertake buried utility and utility avoidance surveys to PAS128 standards in compliance with AECOM guidance. The expectation is that you would perform site operations across the UK as part of a broader team. This would be balanced with office work, potentially including production of operational paperwork, data interpretation, CAD and written reports.

You would be expected to attain the position of site lead for these surveys, providing safety briefings and completing safety and operational paperwork to support your colleagues and where necessary providing supervision of contractors.


  • A broad experience in undertaking Buried Utility surveys to PAS128 standards in a range of different environments

  • Driving License

  • NVQ in Utility detection

  • Ideally you will live locally to the office or be willing to relocate
