Interested In This Role?

Please note that we are unable to offer Skilled Worker Visa sponsorship for this role. Therefore you must ensure that you are eligible to work in the UK without our sponsorship in order for your application to be considered. 

At Arup, we design and deliver ground-breaking icons through our work in infrastructure, building design and specialist technical services. Independent in ownership and spirit, we're a global firm of designers, planners, engineers, consultants and technical experts who use our skills to make a positive difference in the world.

Our advisory work supports our ethos of ‘shaping a better world' and tackling today's major issues including climate change, sustainability and social equality.

We face the challenge that infrastructure assets are becoming increasingly complex as the customer users' needs change, technology advances and legacy assets require complex upgrades and maintenance. We are active in the Transport, Water, Energy and Rail markets, and undertake a wide range of work including:

  • Asset Management
  • Assurance and Regulation
  • Business Case and strategic infrastructure planning
  • Energy advice (Renewables and Nuclear)
  • Innovation, Technology and Trials
  • Intelligent Mobility
  • Performance and Procurement
  • Risk and Resilience
  • Safety and Sustainability

Against this context advisory may be described as a collection of high value professional services to help service the complex needs of our clients and develop innovative solutions to their challenges. Due to our global reach we work across several market sectors including highways, rail and energy.

Are you interested in a career in Infrastructure Advisory?

Right now, we're looking for graduates to join our team of bright professionals in a number of our UK offices. From your first day, you'll join an unrivalled community of experts, where everyone is supported in their career path and encouraged to work towards a professional qualification.

You'll help us to deliver effective solutions to a range of 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.

You will provide support to team members to deliver an effective and professional service to our clients. Due to the multi-disciplinary nature of our design teams, you will have the opportunity to work alongside experts.

Typical responsibilities will include:

  • Working closely with clients and developing solutions on a project by project basis
  • Building strong relationships with team members and the wider Arup
  • Work flexibly and contribute to the work and performance of the team
  • Source, research, and analyse information from a variety of sources
  • Apply appropriate standards and exploit the latest technologies to perform tasks

Projects will be allocated to you on a regular basis for varying lengths of time, working as part of an integrated team. You will have an opportunity to work on projects all over the world, whilst learning from our highly experienced team. You will also have the opportunity to work on traditional design and major projects to provide a well-balanced start to your professional career.
