Work Experience & Internships

We have a number of opportunities for you to find out more about the world of engineering and environmental consultancy.

Work Experience

If your school work experience is approaching, make the most of this opportunity by finding out if engineering is right for you. You will be given the opportunity to join one of our teams for 1-2 weeks, during which you will be given some real experience whilst shadowing a dedicated mentor who has been assigned to you.
