Construction Materials Testing Technician – working at sites across Greater London

If you have experience working independently on construction sites, gained as perhaps a Site Operative (ideally with concrete coring experience, although not essential as full training will be provided), this is a brilliant opportunity to join our expanding company.

Our Company

Streval is a national provider of structural testing services to structural engineering consultants and specialist clients. We are an ambitious business with over 10 years of experience and are a member of the Concrete Society.

The Role – Construction Materials Testing Technician

While our site is located in Bedford, you will be predominantly working at construction sites around Greater London and will be commuting from home to the work site and the lock up.

Your role will be focused on undertaking day to day site-based testing and sampling of construction materials for investigation using various Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) instruments, while liaising daily with the office.

Our Requirements – Construction Materials Testing Technician

Essential, as a minimum:

  • Experience gained working independently on construction sites, with enthusiasm to learn and develop
  • Full UK driving licence

Although not essential, experience of concrete coring to remove core samples for lab testing, along with any of the following, would also be highly advantageous:

  • Cover meter surveys using Hilti Ferroscan
  • Half Cell Potential (Corrosion Mapping)
  • Linear Polarisation Resistance
  • Carbonation Depth measurement
  • Chloride Ion Dust sampling
  • Ground Penetrating Radar
  • Marking out using total station
  • Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity
  • Dynamic Cone Penetrometer
  • Plate Loads

The Package

  • Permanent contract, with full time hours working Monday to Friday 8am to 4pm, with optional weekend overtime available if desired
  • Salary in the region of £26,000 to £28,000, with the level dependent on experience
  • Company van
  • Laptop
