We have a number of exciting opportunities across the UK for apprentices to work within our Traffic Teams. The Traffic team is focused on developing engineering measures to achieve a safe and efficient movement and interaction of pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles on the roads. We focus mainly on traffic flows, road geometry, cycle facilities, traffic signs, pavement engineering, traffic signals and intelligent transport systems. We strive to achieve the optimum use of the available space which is often constrained, especially in urban areas.

Our traffic teams are currently involved in a wide range of projects from concept and preliminary design, traffic modelling, through to detailed design and implementation. We often work alongside other construction professionals in multi-disciplinary teams. Overall we deliver sustainable cost effective solutions to our clients, whether they are local or national authorities or private developers. Work is often fast paced and requires creativity, tenacity and excellent communication to achieve the right result for our clients whilst respecting the requirements of wider stakeholders and maintaining the highest industry standards’.

When an apprentice starts with us we pair them with an experienced engineer who will guide and mentor them through their initial period working on live projects. Training is arranged on our software engineering tools such as TRANSYT, Linsig, Arcady, Vissim and AutoCad to ensure all our engineers have a full set of design skills. Early work with us will typically include:
•Assisting in developing our designs through the different stages


•Traffic flows
•Road geometry
•Cycle facilities
•Traffic signs
•Pavement engineering
•Traffic signals
•Intelligent transport systems


Our STEP programme is designed to recruit school-leavers who show commitment, aptitude and enthusiasm, into science, engineering and technology careers with us. You will combine work-based on-the-job training and learning with further studies and must be willing to progress your career. After an initial probationary period you must be willing to undertake a day release course at a Further Education College to study a relevant course such as Civil Engineering BTEC Level 3 or Civil Degree Apprenticeship, depending on your level of education, and ultimately achieving Incorporated Engineer status and subsequently Chartered Engineer status.
