A Future with purpose

At Arup we’re dedicated to sustainable development and to do socially useful work that has meaning. Our purpose, shared values and collaborative approach has set us apart for over 75 years, guiding how we shape a better world.

We solve the world's most complex problems and deliver what seems impossible. We explore challenges with curiosity and creativity - using technology, imagination and rigour to deliver remarkable outcomes.


The Opportunity 

On this year long Industrial Placement you'll work alongside skilled professionals and from day one you will be working on real life meaningful projects - adding add value to clients, while exploring challenges with curiosity and creativity.  
You'll learn from others and begin creating your professional network ready for when you graduate. There are regular learning sessions with our leadership team, opportunities for site visits to local projects and all kinds of social events that will support your learning and development. 

Our aim is to welcome as many students back into our other programmes, be that another internship or potential graduate position. This placement is the stepping-stone to your future. 

People and Organisations is one of the 5 Advisory Services in Arup. Our Advisory Services team works hand in hand with Arup's entire range of technical experts, meaning clients gain access to insights and opportunities that other consultants miss. We are economists, business strategists, environmentalists, change managers, investment specialists and digital experts – all united by the desire to produce a more sustainable future for all.


Are you interested in a career in People & Organisation Consulting? 

We are looking for a People & Organisations placement intern to join our team for 12 months.


Operations Consulting's People & Organisation Services include: 

  • Operating Model, Organisation Design & Governance: We develop fit-for-purpose operating models, organisational structures and governance models that enable our clients to deliver on their strategic and operational objectives. 
  • Culture, Transformation & Change: We support our clients through every aspect of transformation, from articulating a vision for the future and then putting the right foundations in place to mitigate risk and enable lasting and sustainable change. 
  • Team Alignment, Effectiveness & Collaboration: We help our clients align individuals, teams and organisations to achieve high performance across multiple contexts and levels of complexity, from business-as-usual situations to highly complex, multi-party environments. 
  • Leadership, Talent & Capability: We enable our clients to lead across boundaries by building and integrating talent and capability across an entire enterprise (including owners, investors and suppliers where relevant) to work as one team and optimise value to the entire system. 
  • Resilience & Wellbeing: We work with our clients to promote wellbeing and resilience at all levels and contexts during complex and stressful situations often encountered in times of transformation, systems change, or concentrated programmes of work.  


The position offers an opportunity for students to apply their emerging understanding in technical areas such as organisation design, development, team leadership, collaboration and workplace wellbeing while gaining practical experience on a wide range of projects in a professional consulting environment.
