About Us

Skelly & Couch is a leading environmental engineering practice in the UK. Working with acclaimed architects, we co-create sustainable buildings and spaces that enhance quality of life while treading lightly on the earth.

We cross the boundaries between engineering disciplines to imagine, craft and deliver inventive, low-energy mechanical, electrical, public health and environmental solutions. Much of what we do is unseen – it’s concealed behind walls, under your feet, in the air. But our work brings life to buildings – and buildings to life.

About the Role

We have a unique approach to design as we believe in developing our people to be multi-disciplined engineers able to provide a more holistic contribution to the design process.

This approach gives great opportunities for personal development and is recognised and valued by leading architectural practices and clients. This approach give us the opportunity to work on a wide range of exceptional, bespoke buildings.

As a Graduate Engineer you will be encouraged to develop and build your knowledge of all aspects of environmental design and the sustainable delivery of buildings in a collaborative, supportive and rewarding environment, through 1:1 training with a supervisor and colleagues, working on the highest quality, exciting and rewarding projects.
