Introduction

As well as providing engineering advice and design solutions, we also build professional working relationships within our own organisation and across London.

Currently, we're working on the delivery of major new infrastructure such as extensions to the Northern and Metropolitan Tube lines, the Silvertown road tunnel and the Barking Riverside rail link. We're also increasing capacity at several central London stations, fitting out the Crossrail system and stations and many highway and urban improvements.

Our plans for London's continuing growth also include Crossrail 2, the River Crossings Programme, using smarter technology and Green with Power Station.

What you'll be doing

When you join this scheme, you'll become part of a team which is responsible for all above and below-ground transport. To get a real sense of how we work, you'll stay with the same team for the whole 10 weeks. During that time you could find yourself working on anything from bridge rehabilitation and the cycle scheme to designing and construction new stations and railway infrastructure. This exposure to such a variety of work provides the basis for a challenging placement scheme with great opportunities.

During your time with us you could find yourself working on anything from bridge rehabilitation and the cycle scheme to designing and construction new stations and railway infrastructure, either in an operational engineering capacity or a more strategic role.

  • On site work on major projects, like the Victoria station upgrade or Elephant and Castle redevelopment
  • Design work on significant infrastructure projects like River Crossings and rail extensions
  • Infrastructure protection such as track or structures inspection, strengthening and refurbishment
  • Highway design and scheme implementation
  • Asset management, maintenance and remedial works programmes
