Where the STEM jobs are
Gradcracker works here's the proof
Are you an aspiring fire engineer looking to make a difference to the world around you? Do you want the chance to grow, learn, and be supported by industry leaders? This ever-changing world will be shaped by the buildings put into it; and we know it’s often the newest minds who have the brightest ideas.
As a graduate fire engineer, your day-to-day tasks will vary, as we’ll expose you to all aspects of our work so you can develop into a competent engineer. This will include producing detailed designs and drawings, using the latest computer modelling software, undertake site surveys, or research ground-breaking technologies. You will review building designs to assess its compliance whilst also designing solutions to bespoke fire engineering problems, as part of the overall design team, alongside the architect and Statutory Authorities.
You will undertake calculations for smoke and temperature spread, as well as more complex smoke and evacuation modelling (CFD simulations), detailed fire dynamics and structural assessments. In addition, you would undertake analysis of potential fires, by researching into problems areas and develop advice based on the outcome. You will also provide recommendations in relation to life safety systems for buildings and assist the production of fire strategy reports for buildings.
For over 150 years, we have been at the forefront of engineering design for the built environment. We specialise in mechanical, electrical and public health (MEP) engineering, offering a full range of design services, and as an independent partnership, we’re the largest firm of consulting engineers of our kind in the UK. We’re focused on growth, both in the UK and overseas, and have an impressive project portfolio covering everything from simple feasibility studies to some of the biggest schemes in the world.
We stick to what we’re good at and encourage all of our people to influence the way things are done. We’re large enough to provide stability and opportunity, and small enough to recognise our people as individuals; this has led to a culture of flexibility, individualism and organic growth.
