About the graduate scheme

Why Hoare Lea?

At Hoare Lea, you feel part of a family. We ensure you receive the best training and development in the industry, in order to set you up for a bright future. 

Joining our firm is the chance to play your part in the future of engineering design. Our projects span scales, styles, and geographies. We’re committed to sustainable design, innovation, and collaboration with forward-thinking clients. Straight away you’ll experience working on live projects.

What are we looking for?

Our culture and values are what make Hoare Lea such a great place to work, so see whether they match with how you approach things. We are looking for friendly, ambitious and confident people, with a flexible and resilient attitude.

These days, engineering is a lot more than pipes and wires; we look at the building as a whole and are involved in every stage, from initial client discussions right through to construction and even the building’s ongoing performance. As a graduate engineer, we’ll expose you to all aspects of our work so you can discover what suits you, so your day-to-day tasks will vary.

Our commitment to you

  • You'll make a difference from day one.
  • You'll get the best training in the industry.

Award-winning training

Our IPD (individual professional development) scheme gives you the best training and development in the industry. It recently won the IET long-running scheme award, recognising 25 years of continuous quality. This means if you want to excel in our industry, you’ll get the best level of support working for us.

You also get a dedicated mentor and supervisor to guide you through your development, combined with our comprehensive learning and development programme, and support towards achieving Chartered Engineer or Incorporated Engineer status.

The very best graduates on the IPD scheme also receive a prize at our annual IPD Awards.
