Jacobs Principal Geospatial Consultant in York, United Kingdom

Our People & Places Solutions business – reinforces our drive to improve the lives of people everywhere and epitomizes the "why" of what we do – the tremendous positive impact and value our solutions bring to our communities and society as a whole. From facilities delivering life-saving therapies and ensuring clean water to enabling the connection of people through all modes of transportation and providing access to technology – we're integrating a multitude of these solution elements to build the smart environments of tomorrow.

Start your Jacobs career with a company that inspires and empowers you to deliver your best work so you can evolve, grow and succeed – today and into tomorrow.

Your Impact:

To meet our growing UK business needs and digital transformation, we have an opportunity for a Principal Geospatial Consultant within our Digital team, supporting Utilities, Highways, Rail, Energy and Environment sectors.

Working with our large geospatial team across the UK, Ireland and Poland, you will provide critical input to delivering projects and fostering innovation. You can be based at one of our main UK office locations (Glasgow, Edinburgh, Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Reading, London) and would report to the regional or office geospatial lead.

We are looking for a candidate who can make the wider Jacobs business become ‘digital by default’, promoting and developing geospatial solutions to solve client problems. You need to be adaptable and open minded, ready to go outside your comfort zone and bring others with you. You will be a technical expert and help to lead and mentor other colleagues. We want a great communicator who can promote our team and its solutions across Jacobs globally and to external clients.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • High level of technical expertise in ESRI products including Arc Pro, ArcGIS Online and Enterprise Portal.

  • Experienced in GIS systems integration and implementation of Enterprise GIS.

  • Experienced in leading large-scale GIS project delivery, costings and resourcing.

  • Evidence of engagement with external clients, internal clients, framework managers, and sales teams through previous geospatial role.

  • Knowledge of developing and promoting GIS solutions through an agile approach.

  • Track record in data management and standards, and in the production of web maps and apps.

  • A problem solver with a good degree qualification in a relevant discipline or equivalent evidence of continued professional development.

This role requires experience in the management of GIS data across the whole project lifecycle. Knowledge of the engineering, environmental or utilities sectors is an advantage but not essential. Alongside the ESRI products you may be experienced in other GIS software, programming languages and software development, FME or CAD products.

Of central importance is the ability to function as part of multi-disciplinary teams located across several offices, to lead GIS project teams or groups of specialists, and to identify opportunities for new GIS services or solutions we can provide.
