This is an excellent opportunity for an undergraduate Engineer to work with a growing consultancy. The undergraduate Engineer will be able to develop their skills and will gain valuable experience being involved in the delivery of rail and civil projects through their complete life cycle, from tender production to scheme and detailed design.
We are committed to developing students and you will be trained and mentored to assist in a range of tasks. Due to our business approach, you will gain a range of experience in engineering design, construction process, project delivery and business operation.
The role will offer the opportunity to receive a lot of exposure to the workings of a consultancy. You will assist on a wide variety of projects and receive help from a range of team members.
The skills and knowledge you gain from your placement will be very helpful to the rest of your University course and may provide you with the opportunity to fast track the application process when applying for Graduate roles within our organisation following the completion of your degree (subject to performance).
We are a friendly and professional team that is proud of the quality of service it delivers to its clients, and a clear vision for innovation.
We are aware that working as a full-time employee can be daunting. That’s why we have put in place a support network to help you settle in. On joining, you’ll be introduced to your buddy – a current or ex-graduate who will be able to answer many of your questions and be available to help and assist you on a day-to-day basis.

The ideal candidate will have an understanding of the basics of structural/civil analysis including the design of Concrete, Steel, Masonry, and Timber structures either by hand calculations or using engineering software.
You will have excellent verbal and written communication skills with the ability to generate and technically review reports, and will be self-confident, articulate, resilient a face-to-face communication skills with internal staff. These skills are essential for permanent roles where your skills in client liaison (e.g. Meetings, presentations) and key account management/relationship would be developed.
