Who we're looking for

You may think a company like Arcadis is only interested in people with an Engineering or Construction related degree, however, we actively encourage applications from candidates who are from non-engineering or construction related degree disciplines for our Consulting and Project Management programmes.  

If you don’t have a relevant degree and you apply for our Project Management or Cost Consulting Programmes, you will undertake an MSc conversion course, this will be studied through distance learning.

Most of all we want people who are energetic, motivated and have the natural drive to achieve results. Those who have excellent analytical skills, are resilient, adaptable to change and who possess a Growth Mindset.   These traits align to our culture and are thus some of the attributes we look for in future Arcadians.
