Standing in a building, knowing you designed solutions that made it what it is: how it feels, how it functions, how it looks… That’s the moment great engineering comes to life.

What are you looking for?

Are you an aspiring engineer looking to make a difference to the world around you? Do you want the chance to grow, learn, and be supported by industry leaders? This ever-changing world will be shaped by the buildings put into it; and we know it’s often the newest minds who have the brightest ideas.

What can we offer you?

As a leading international firm of consulting engineers, we didn’t build a 150-year legacy by standing still. The built environment is where our design-led work can carve out a better future for the planet and its people. For us, it’s about putting heart, soul, innovation and sustainability into the buildings we work on.

What could you be part of?

These days, engineering is a lot more than pipes and wires; we look at the building as a whole and are involved in every stage, from initial client discussions right through to construction and even the building’s ongoing performance. We collaborate with colleagues, architects and other construction professionals, playing a critical role in every building’s design.

What might you be doing?

As an apprentice, your day-to-day tasks will vary, as we’ll expose you to all aspects of our work so you can discover what suits you. You’ll learn how to produce detailed designs and drawings, use the latest computer modelling software, undertake site surveys, or research ground-breaking technologies. Communicating will span all of these, as we regularly liaise with project teams, meet clients or end users, and attend collaborative meetings.

Why does our work make a difference?

We play a major role in driving sustainable development. We help create some of the most innovative low-carbon buildings, pushing the limit on what’s possible. Our work covers almost every sector – from healthcare, residential and retail, to defence, arts & heritage and education – and includes exciting large-scale high-profile projects, such as Heathrow Airport T2A, Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, and the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. We’re also a sociable and active bunch, and the firm regularly holds events such as inter-office sports competitions, sailing, pub quizzes, running events, nights out and much more!
