We provide digital advisory services that focus on working with clients on their digital strategy, design of new services, systems and assets, and helping deliver working solutions along with the development of new analysis tools and other cloud enabled digital services for clients. 

Are you interested in a career in GIS or Data Analytics?

We're currently looking for a Summer Placement to join our digital team for 6-8 weeks starting in June or July 2021. 

The opportunity to experience a fast-paced and diverse working environment. Arup searches for the highest calibre people and supports and encourages the enhancement of your skills as part of making this a valuable and enjoyable summer placement for you.

About you

You should be an innovative problem solver, someone who thinks ‘outside the box' and who is able to communicate ideas and solutions.

You should have a positive and forward-thinking approach and enjoy working as part of a friendly and supportive team.

Workload will be diverse and the ability to multi-task and manage your workload is important.

An enquiring mind is key to our approach, as we work across numerous diverse contexts.

You will be able to assimilate such new contexts rapidly, and to use various design techniques to help make sense of them, for colleagues, clients and collaborators.

 

We're looking for students with the following qualifications, attributes and skills:

  • Working towards a bachelor's degree and/or master's degree in a relevant subject such as Geography, GIS, Computer / Data Science or Software Development is required.

  • Graduated in 2020 / 2021 having achieved a 2:1 or higher (or equivalent) in a relevant subject such as Geography, GIS, Computer / Data Science or Software Development

 

  • Strong technical expertise and a sound understanding of database management, programming, development, web and visualisation.
  • You should have proven academic experience of utilising and deploying data solutions.
  • We are particularly keen to meet people with programming and development skills who have an understanding and aptitude for using one or more of the following: ModelBuilder and/or ArcObjects, ArcGIS Server, FME, PostGIS, Python, SQL and Javascript.
  • Key to this role will be the use of this knowledge to integrate systems and build software customisations to make spatial and non-spatial data analysis more easily accessible, so experience in this also desirable.
  • Experience in the visualisation and analysis of complex and large data sets is desirable.
