You can look forward to a mix of on-the-job learning, training modules and project work, and as you develop, you’ll find the challenges will increase in complexity and responsibility.

Our engineering programme is accredited by the Institution of Engineering & Technology (IET), so you know you’ll be on the right track to become registered as a Chartered Engineer should you choose to; this typically takes 4-5 years, and we will help you all the way.

Who we're looking for

We’re looking for engineering graduates who have a strong interest in Civil Engineering.

You’ll also need:

  • 1st or 2:1 degree in a civil or structural (or closely related) engineering discipline, accredited by the relevant engineering institution
  • Right to work in the UK
  • Willingness to relocate multiple times and try new things
  • To be a passionate and creative engineer who can deliver solutions within tight timeframes and implement them safely and successfully whilst demonstrating our values
  • In possession of a full UK driving licence, as you may be required to travel to remote locations

What you'll be doing

You will provide in-house civil engineering expertise to internal stakeholders including Commercial, Engineering, Construction and Operation & Maintenance functions.  You will also ensure that the civils and building element of each project is delivered safely, to program and budget, fulfilling the needs of our clients.

Proven capability in the specification of civil/structural requirements for industrial and commercial energy projects is required. A strong focus on producing civil/structural designs that minimise risk to our installers and customers alike is essential. You will be working from day one as part of a team and we have high expectations of our Graduates.
