Fire engineering is one of the most important investments and critical considerations that can be made on almost any engineering project. Standard fire safety design guides can be overly restrictive on the design of structures, or simply not fit for purpose, especially for innovative or bespoke design projects.
Our specialist fire safety engineering team offers an alternative and dynamic approach to fire engineering design, that ensures the structure and its occupants are as safe from the dangers of fire as can be reasonably expected; rather than simply ensuring that it complies with a design document. We incorporate the most appropriate methods of fire protection from a host of engineering techniques which help to minimise the impact of fire on structures, providing cost efficiencies where appropriate and ultimately improving the overall resilience and safety of a structure.
The nature of fire-engineering forces you to be technically sound in tandem with interpersonal and negotiating skills to deliver the best design to your clients.
You will help the team develop ‘fire strategies’: documents detailing the life safety systems, firefighting provisions, and any technically derived fire-engineered solutions required to meet the overarching design goals. This involves regular contact with the client and design team, any associated site visits, and office-based report writing.
Our award-winning reputation means our clients expect and demand the very best in fire safety advice. We provide fire engineering consultancy services for prestigious buildings and rail projects worldwide, across a range of sectors. From healthcare premises, to sporting facilities, military and high value/sensitive installations to surface and sub-surface rail stations.
We have roles in our Croydon & London offices.
We are looking for flexible and motivated graduates with a genuine passion for fire engineering and a desire to make a difference in the world. If this describes you, apply today to launch your career at Mott MacDonald.
To apply for this scheme, you will have less than 12 months experience and have a degree or are expected to achieve one of the following degree disciplines:
In your application you should be able to demonstrate your interest in fire engineering through relevant experience, such as studying relevant modules, or previous work experience.
A graduate scheme should be more than just job. We know this and so do you. That’s why with our graduate programme, we aim to give you the experience and technical knowledge you need to progress your career.
From the moment you join us, you’ll receive the training you need. You will be assigned a chartered mentor, who will guide you to meet the objectives of your professional training agreement. We’ll support you on your journey to gaining chartered status with your chosen institution.
With our innovative graduate development portal, you will be able to effectively track and plan your personal and professional development online.
You’ll be enrolled onto Accelerate Your Future, a structured three-year development programme which develops the strengths that we know graduates need to be successful at Mott MacDonald. It also gives you the opportunity to network and meet other graduates in your cohort. The programme is a mix of residential events, classroom-based learning, virtual webinars and business challenges. We understand that each person’s career goals vary, therefore we tailor make each individual’s development programme to suit them. With our vast library of e-learning courses available to you, you can choose which direction you want your career to go in.
