London Bridge Associates (LBA) was founded in 2000 by a number of ex-Taylor Woodrow staff. The original team carved themselves out a niche within the industry and the company has grown steadily ever since.
The company works internationally and throughout the UK but with a strong focus in London. The company seeks a balanced workload with staff working for contractors to ensure that construction skills are kept up to date; and for designers and clients who benefit from the independent construction expertise that is available through all stages in the life of a project.
The company currently employ around 55 staff, and we have a number of sub-consultants who regularly or occasionally work through us.
Our vision is to be the consultancy team and employer of choice, by bringing knowledge, expertise, endeavour and enthusiasm to our tailored solutions that deliver value to all of our Clients, and by providing an enjoyable and professionally fulfilling working experience for people at the top of their profession
LBA is a 100% employee owned company, and all employees who have been with the Company for 18 months or more own shares through a Share Incentive Plan. We offer competitive employment conditions, along with the flexibility that comes from being a small company.
We are very employee focused and try wherever possible to place people in roles that they find interesting, challenging, rewarding and provide an opportunity to progress within their preferred specialism. We are not (due to our small size) currently able to offer specific structured learning programmes, but we operate Mentor and Buddy systems to ensure that training needs and wants are provided and to encourage our employees to progress to Charted Engineer status within a variety of institutions, including the ICE and IMMM. We operate a very flat hierarchy, but there is generally plenty of opportunity to progress within the commission work we perform.
Whilst being a company largely made up of Engineers, we are in most other ways, extremely diverse. Our team is 34% female (29% of Administration staff are excluded) and 50% are under 40.
We are regularly looking for experienced, flexible, and motivated individuals to augment the team. If you feel that you have what it takes and would be a good fit within the team, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
