We welcome your application if you have graduated within the last 12 months, or are due to graduate in 2024, with a predicted 2.1 (or above) Bachelor’s degree and/or a Master’s degree in one of the following subjects:

So what would I actually be doing?

Once you get going, and you’re feeling confident, you could be in a client meeting one day talking through a project, visiting a site the next to carry out assessments, engaging with the general public or key stakeholders in a workshop setting, or simply working at one of our amazing open plan offices.

When you’re in the office you’ll work in a variety of ways. You could be creating a plan using GIS, modelling the impact of a new development on the highway network, designing a cycle route or new junction, writing a report on how we can reduce the impact of flooding, preparing a business case for funding new infrastructure or helping to develop a city wide transport and movement strategy.
