Our Level 7 Degree Apprenticeships: 

Our apprenticeships allow you to study for industry-recognised qualifications whilst earning a competitive salary. As an apprentice, you will study with a training provider, such as a university, and combine this experience with real responsibilities in the workplace. Your study pattern could be day or block release, or via distance learning, depending on the course that you enrol on. A dedicated mentor will guide you through your personal and professional development. 

Level 7 Degree Apprenticeships have a typical duration of 3– 6 years, during which you will attain both a professional and academic qualification to further your career. Our apprentices are employed on a permanent basis, so you'll continue to progress with Arup once you've completed your course.  

What we're looking for:     

We're looking for apprentices that are curious about the built and natural environment and are committed to their personal development.  We'll teach you the skills and technical knowledge that you need for a rewarding career in design and professional services, where you'll be part of a collaborative team that delivers excellence for our clients. 

You should be available to start this opportunity no later than September 2023.   

Architecture 

Right now we're looking for a well-motivated and creative Level 7 Apprentice who is keen to be involved in challenging and innovative projects, based in our office in London.  

Architecture has been an integral part of Arup for over 50 years. Our reputation was built on designing buildings that were at the forefront of innovation, sustainability and people-centred design.  

As part of the global firm of 16,000 designers, planners, engineers, consultants, and technical experts in more than 90 offices around the world, we have unrivalled access to the skills and expertise needed to create ‘Total Architecture'. We have architectural practices in the UK, Europe, the Americas, Australasia and East Asia and we are growing.    

We are looking for people who would like to join our community of Architects in a mission to Shape a Better World. We continue to design buildings that are simple, purposeful, efficient and beautiful, that are technologically advanced and sensitive to environmental and human needs in line with Ove Arup's vision for ‘Total Architecture'. 

Our projects span various sectors, including transport, sport, science and industry, commercial buildings, and social infrastructure and we work closely with Arup's unparalleled range of engineers and specialists to create the most beneficial outcome for our clients, for society and for the planet.    

We offer our staff the opportunity to undertake short or long-term assignments to other regions and research is central to our culture. Arup University and our Foresight and Innovation team allow us to differentiate our services and encourage individuals to follow their passions in their work. Our teams have access to state of the art digital tools, and the flexibility to work from home for up to 3 days each week – we are committed to providing the highest quality services to our clients whilst also championing wellbeing for all members of our team.  

We are looking for individuals with a bachelor's degree in architecture or equivalent plus 3 A-Levels at grade C or above and 5 GCSE including Maths and English at grade C/4/5 or above. 

Risk & Safety Management Professional 

Right now we're looking for Risk, Health and Safety Management Professional Degree Apprentices to join our team in London. From your first day, you'll join an unrivalled community of experts, where everyone is supported in their career path and encouraged to work towards an accredited qualification.  

You'll work with Health & Safety professionals as a member of the firm's Advisory team assisting in the provision of health and safety services to both internal and external clients. This will involve developing health and safety consultancy services and carrying out a wide range of construction health & safety advice, occupational health and safety advice (such as strategy, policy development, H&S risk assessments and audits, analysis and reporting on/communication of performance).

You'll be working collaboratively with teams of specialists to solve complex problems, assisting with writing policies and procedures, carrying out site inspections and audits and engaging with clients on a project basis.  

The projects can be very varied in size, location and complexity e.g. they may involve the energy aviation, maritime, rail, major building, manufacturing and finance sectors within the UK and globally.  

As an Apprentice, Arup will develop your competencies in the following areas:  

  • Health & Safety risk / opportunity and issue management  
  • Safety in Design  
  • Information management and reporting  
  • Communication  
  • Teamwork & collaboration  
  • Client focus  
  • Managing project scope  
  • Problem solving  
  • Project planning  
  • Communication and safety leadership  
  • Application of relevant regulations 

These skills will be developed through practical on-the-job training, working with experienced health and safety consultants, multi-disciplinary teams, commercial and project managers across the business and classroom-based training.  

For clarity, this role is health & safety specific and while you will work with a variety of professionals including project and risk managers, this apprenticeship role is not related to risk or project management.   

We are looking for candidates with an undergraduate degree at grade 2.2 or above or an equivalent qualification in any discipline plus 3 A-Levels at grade C or above and 5 GCSE including Maths and English at grade C/4/5 or above. 

What we offer you:

  • You'll have access to lots of learning opportunities including a structured Welcome Programme and ongoing development through Arup University.     
  • Additionally, you'll have the opportunity to utilise your skills to improve the lives of the most vulnerable in the communities in which we live and work through Arup's Community Engagement programme.     

Next steps:     

Complete the application form, attaching any required documents. You will be asked for your role preference as part of this form. We'll be reviewing applications on a rolling basis. You are therefore strongly encouraged to apply in advance of the application deadline. Our assessment centres for this opportunity will take place from February 2023.
