There are 4 leading reasons why people seek new employment – new opportunities, career development, a competitive salary and more recently, flexibility. All of which D4S advocate and offer to all members of our team, at every stage of their career. We very much see ourselves as a family, supporting and encouraging each other as and when is needed – no individual is a number or just a cog in a machine here.
Where we strive to offer our clients the highest level in engineering and design services, we also look for the right people to complement others in our team to achieve this, all varying in their approach and nature. Our line of thought on this has always been it’s about 80% of the engineer and importantly 20% about the person themselves.
Corporate talk over, we all like a good social and team events, drinks and celebrations are encouraged throughout the year – it’s an important part of life at D4S to kick back and enjoy ourselves and it also means the team will gel and work more effectively together as a nice bonus.
Hear from our team
“I joined D4S in 2018 after having worked in a larger London-based tier 1 consultancy. At that time, I needed a better work-life balance due to starting a family and balancing child care with work. The company has always been very understanding with the flexibility that I’ve needed to juggle my outside-of-work responsibilities and I’ve always been very grateful for that. When I joined, the team was much smaller (4 engineers in London team) which I was not used to. Despite the difference, what reassured me that this was the perfect fit, was the vibe I got from Jon and the team. Even as the team has expanded, I’ve always felt that we have a culture that we’re working together to do something special, making our mark on the industry and delivering projects in our own unique way. For engineers of any level, I think its important to feel that you are a key part of the journey that the company is going on and I’ve always felt I have been at D4S”Oliver PatersonAssociate
“When considering my next career move, I was firstly very drawn to and impressed by the variety of projects that D4S had been involved in. For myself personally, I’ve always been interested in architecturally lead projects, which D4S actively promoted working on via their website and LinkedIn page - Madinah Villa particularly caught my attention. Since joining D4S I’ve been impressed and enjoyed the fact we are structural engineers who are involved in all stages and aspects of a project, via our steel detailing side of the business, TDS. In my role I’m lucky enough to work on a wide range of projects, with a focus on detail taken by all of the team, along with a positive and proactive approach no matter what challenges we’re faced with. After settling in at D4S it was great to find what is portrayed and had inspired me to join the team via their website and social media was very much a reality.”Joanna TwortStructural Engineer
“I am very interested in the technical aspect of the structural design. Here at D4S, I have found a purely technical role which is hard to find elsewhere in the UK. D4S is capable of delivering quality design from concept to fabrication with no hidden or missing steps in the design on a different variety of materials. When I joined the team, I was also looking for flexibility, particularly the option of working from home and at D4S this hybrid when needed, was reality well before the pandemic. Since joining D4S, as one of Jon’s very first employees, I have always found it to be flexible and comprehensive engineering in a friendly environment.”Mauro BarosioAssociate Director
“Before joining D4S, they were of particular interest to me due to their collaborative approach from concept to execution, working alongside its sister company TDS. It’s a progressive company with scope for growth, a flexible working environment, in an exciting location. I was warmly welcomed by the team and have since thrived working on a wide range of projects of varying size, stages, and sectors. I have been provided with support in design and towards personal growth aiming for chartership with a professional institution. I feel encouraged to use my experience and knowledge to shape and develop the company, with a good amount of responsibility and personal job satisfaction. There is also a great social vibe in the office and after hours!””James AtkinsonStructural Engineer
