As Lead Engineer, you will utilize a combination of your exceptional structural engineering, project management, advocacy, and program development skills to provide strategic direction for Build Change’s technical program in the Philippines. You will have the opportunity to contribute to the conception andexecution of projects, manage a team of technical staff, represent Build Change with partners and clients, and advocate and collaborate with government agencies. As a member of the Build Change international engineering team, you will work in partnership with staff in other country programs as well as colleagues from the technology innovations and education (training) departments.

You are prepared to manage a variety of technical responsibilities that ensure quality in the design and implementation of our projects in the Philippines, which include the retrofitting and new construction of various masonry and timber constructions systems. These responsibilities also relate to QA/QC systems, developing and updating technical resources, and applying engineering judgment to solve problems and generate solutions to unique design challenges.

You are excited by the idea of working with various teams to implement work plans; recruiting, mentoring, training and overseeing the Philippines-based engineering and technical staff; and interfacing with the innovations team to support the adoption of technology for implementation at scale. And maybe not quite as excited but more than willing and able to prepare monthly reports and contribute to project proposals and reporting.

Accessing your full range of professional skills, you also look forward to the prospect of representing Build Change with government agencies, project partners, prospective donors, and local technical consultants to advocate for Build Change’s philosophy and practices in disaster-resistant construction design and implementation.
