Degree Apprenticeships - Building Services

Job description

Right now we're looking for Building Services Degree Apprentices to join our teams in London. From your first day, you'll join a community of experts, where everyone is supported in their career path and encouraged to work towards an accredited qualification.

You’d work alongside and be taught by the engineers who designed projects that included the Shard, T5 Heathrow airport, the new ticket hall at Kings Cross, the London Aquatics Centre and Coal Drops Yard. You'll help us to deliver effective and professional services for a range of varied and high-profile clients. While you'll have a great deal of responsibility from day one, we'll give you the chance to take on more as you progress and broaden your skills.

Building services
You'll help a team including architects and engineers to design all kinds of systems such as energy management, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, drainage, lighting, power, water services, life-safety systems, communications and building transportation.

You'll work with renewable and emerging technologies and enjoy the chance to take part in a wide range of projects - from newly built sports stadia to the refurbishment of historic premises. Your projects could span a variety of sectors, including education, sports, health and industry.

At Arup, you’ll have the advantage of Building Information Modelling (BIM) technology. BIM enables us to design buildings collaboratively using computer models. As part of your apprenticeship, you'll study towards a Level 6 degree in Building Services Engineering with one of our local partner universities.

You'll specialise in one of the following areas:

Environmental Services (Public Health)
You’ll be working in a multi-disciplinary office with structural, mechanical and electrical engineers and specialists such as fire and acoustic engineers, preparing designs in coordination with their team as well as external architects, surveyors, contractors and clients for projects across a wide range of markets. Arup also helps shape the debate on environmental services (public health) engineering in professional and regulatory forums.

Where we see strong potential for positive change, we assist clients in research and product development and also pursue in-house research and development.

Our Electrical Building Services Engineers apply their specialist skills to buildings projects across the globe.

We offer our clients a broad spectrum of expertise and consulting services in, but not limited to, the following types of developments: commercial and residential developments, tall buildings, Universities, colleges and schools, hospitals and healthcare buildings, laboratories and research facilities, transport projects, including airports and rail stations, sports facilities and stadia, theatres and performance venues, museums and art galleries, large-scale industrial and manufacturing facilities and data centres.

Mechanical building services engineers aim to deliver user comfort whilst also ensuring our designs are as efficient and sustainable as possible. This inevitably requires energy-intensive systems that are both expensive to install, operate and maintain. Our mechanical engineers develop these systems and help shape many other aspects of building design in projects ranging from hospitals to data centres and office tower blocks to universities.

As well as design, our role is heavily reliant on communication. Working together in multidisciplinary teams to optimise the competing requirements of a design. We’re constantly looking to develop the way we work and advances in software, computer modelling and virtual reality are rapidly changing the building design process.

What are we looking for?
If you’re keen to build a fulfilling career in the design engineering sector and deliver excellent services for clients, we'd like to hear from you. We're looking for the following qualifications, attributes and skills:

  • A-Level maths at Grade B or above (or equivalent qualification), plus 2 A-levels (or equivalent qualifications) at grade C or above including a science, or a relevant Level 3 qualification/apprenticeship
  • Willing to work with numbers
  • Interest in using computers for design work, calculations and testing
  • Creative and inquisitive approach to problem-solving and seek to improve existing ways of working, by finding efficiencies in processes
  • The ability to organise your own work and always be on time
  • Good communication skills
  • The ability to work as part of a team
  • Lots of enthusiasm for this learning and development opportunity

What will we offer in return?
There are infinite possibilities when you join Arup. You'll receive all the opportunities that come with a challenging, fulfilling career, including:

  • A competitive salary
  • Profit share scheme
  • 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
