Graduate Development Programme

Build a career for life, shaping our built and natural environment.

SYSTRA offers a structured three-year Graduate Development Programme (GDP) combining formal training with on-the-job experience. We provide exciting opportunities across engineering and consultancy disciplines – giving you the chance to work on transport, energy and infrastructure projects that are changing the world. 

You could find yourself working on disruptive technologies, consulting on clever ways to extend the life of ageing transport assets, designing local schemes to encourage walking and cycling, or supporting the development of high-speed rail lines to connect major cities. As well as working on projects in the UK and Ireland, you could have the chance to work overseas in one of our global offices.

“I found a graduate role at SYSTRA that brought together my interest in research with my curiosity for how society works. From day one, I felt really supported by my line manager and the graduate development programme. I was given more opportunities than I can count to get stuck in, upskill and meet others. Six years later, I manage my own project teams, including supporting new graduates in their development!”

Emma Salter – Principal Consultant, Research, Modelling & Analysis
