Our graduate programme


Where do our future leaders and specialists come from? A lot of them join us via our graduate scheme - so it's no wonder we're single-minded about attracting the best and brightest graduates every year.


On this well-established and structured scheme, you'll have the opportunity to experience various departments and functions of our business, and develop your skills accordingly. Which means that, by the time you've completed your various rotations, your knowledge of your chosen field will be deep, broad and impressive.


Experience in some fields may be compulsory, but as the scheme progresses, you'll be able to decide for yourself which areas interest you most. All the time, you'll have an assigned mentor on hand, who'll provide you with expert advice when you need it. They'll help you make the most of the opportunities on offer, and lay the foundations of a stellar long-term career.


We want you to achieve as much as you can with us - which is why we'll give you the personal and financial support you need to get a professional qualification in your chosen discipline. For engineers aspiring to Chartered status, our Graduate Scheme is aligned with the MPDS programme. Please use the menus on the left to browse our opportunities in more detail.


Please only apply for one discipline. You will be given the option of applying for a second discipline during the application process. If you apply for multiple disciplines you will not be considered for all applications.
