About us

Arup is a global firm of designers, planners, engineers, consultants and technical experts. We use our skills to make a positive difference in the world. This is a brilliant opportunity to build a creative career designing and delivering exciting work in infrastructure, building design and specialist technical services. 

Our apprenticeships allow you to study for an academic qualification while working and learning alongside respected, technical professionals.

About the role

Our Digital consultancy group offers design and consulting services to clients to solve complex technology related challenges across the business and project lifecycle from strategy, design, insight and into operations.

A Digital Apprentice in software development works with a team of architects, engineers, designers and other professionals in the engineering consulting industry to design various IT and telecommunications systems for the built environment.

This typically includes the development and deploying of platforms, tools and data solutions to support projects across a number of sectors including transport, government, sport, property and energy. Arup’s Digital business is a rapid growth area and we want someone who can help to expand this further through innovative thinking, enthusiasm and vision. You should be keen to learn and develop your skills as you gain experience in new areas of work.

This role will be based within our North West & Yorkshire Digital sub-team in Manchester and primarily focussed on software development although there will be the opportunity to work in other technologies as the need arises.

This apprenticeship leads to a BSc in Digital and Technology Solutions delivered at Manchester Metropolitan University. The course is taught via day release one day per week, with the remaining four working days spent in our office.

A mentor will be provided to ensure a smooth transition into the working environment. Many apprentices are also working in a number of other departments, providing a ready made network for the candidate.

What we look for

We’re looking for dynamic and dedicated individuals to join us as apprentices. If you are keen to build a fulfilling career in digital technology and deliver excellent services for clients, we’d like to hear from you.

We’re looking for the following qualifications, attributes and skills:

  • A minimum of 3 A-levels at Grade C or above, or equivalent, or a BTEC Level 3 in a related discipline
  • Grade C or above in English and Grade B or above in Maths GCSE, or equivalent

We are keen to meet people with programming and development skills. However a willingness to learn and enthusiasm for the complex world of Buildings, Infrastructure, Design and Consulting is as important as experience of coding, for which support and training will be provided. 

What we offer

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
