Job description

This is a brilliant opportunity to build a creative career designing and delivering exciting work in design engineering.

A dedicated mentor and our learning and development team will guide you through your personal and professional development.

About the role

Collaboration between many types of Engineering disciplines are needed to bring these projects to life; in helping to develop and coordinate innovative solutions to complicated problems, the type of work you will get involved in will vary greatly; from 3D computer modelling, to calculations, to presenting designs to collaborators…and much more.

At Arup we pride ourselves on providing a vibrant, open and diverse culture which allows our apprentices to thrive; where everyone is supported in their career path and encouraged to work towards an accredited qualification.

You'll support a variety of different work, including:

  • Production of engineering drawings and sketches, including 3D or 2D computer drawings
  • Production of Building Information Models (BIM)

  • Contributing to solutions for design challenges
  • Taking part in design meetings, site visits, presentations and workshops

  • A comprehensive package, including a flexible benefits fund and a generous pension
  • An interesting and varied workload where you'll make a tangible difference to the world
  • A collaborative and friendly team in an excellent working environment
  • An exciting workload that will make the most of your skills
  • The support you need to develop your career through professional accreditation and training
