The projects you will work on will be developing our city regions and providing vital infrastructure for future generations. You'll be working collaboratively with teams of specialists to solve complex problems, assisting with the preparation and management of contracts and coordinating project resources.

You will be assigned a mentor within your team who you will work and liaise closely with you in your day-to-day work.
