Join the dBx Acoustics Team

Senior/Principal Consultant needed to join us in Manchester.

Could you be the next member of the dBx Acoustics team?

We’re looking for an experienced acoustic consultant to join the team in our central Manchester office.

In this role, you’ll be responsible for all aspects of project management from quotes and contracts to calculations and reports. You’ll also help to train and mentor less experienced members of the team, and review the work of your colleagues.

We are a small team so you’ll sometimes be travelling to sites across the UK and should be aware that the role will occasionally require weekend and night time working, and overnight stays.

About You

We’re more interested in your experience and abilities, rather than your ‘years served’ in the industry. You’re able to manage your own workload and delegate effectively to deliver projects on time and on budget, even in a sometimes pressured environment. Your experience will include both building acoustics and environmental noise projects and you’ll be comfortable working on a broad range of schemes and multiple projects at any one time.

¬†You’ll be a good communicator, able to build and maintain relationships with clients old and new, as well as with your colleagues. We expect you to have a strong understanding of relevant standards and guidance, to be a Member of the Institute of Acoustics, and to hold relevant qualifications in acoustics.


About Us

dBx Acoustics was founded in 2013 and has offices in central Manchester (Ancoats). We work on all kinds of projects nationwide, including large residential schemes, office fit out, and noise impact assessments. We are small but ambitious, and our reputation as technically excellent and innovative acoustic consultants is growing. We hold quality accreditation (ISO 9001 and BS EN ISO 17025) and are accredited by UKAS for sound insulation testing.

We take what we do seriously, but we’re a great place to work. We have an office dog, and we aren’t afraid to be a little silly, or to escape for ice cream and beer when the weather gets hot. We offer a workplace pension, a number of perks including online GP access and various discounts, and we are committed to supporting your personal and professional development. Oh, and we’re family friendly and flexible – if you’re looking for a part time role, or are returning to work after a break, don’t be afraid to apply.

Our project portfolio is growing. We need your help to enable us take on more of Manchester’s exciting schemes and maintain our high standards.

What can dBx Acoustics offer you?

We may be a small company, but we like to think we take care of our team. If you work with us you can expect;

  • 25 days annual leave (plus bank holidays)
  • Flexible working
  • Online GP access
  • Free mobile phone insurance
  • Employee assistance phone line
  • Employee benefits/discount scheme
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Childcare voucher scheme (if you already receive vouchers – the Government has closed the scheme to new applicants)
