Careers

Our desire is to be the practice and employer people choose because of the way we do things.

Aspiring and experienced engineers join us from a range of science and engineering backgrounds. We offer dedicated training in a creative and inspiring working environment, providing a programme that supports professional development.

We employ capable, talented people to enhance the work that we do in our business administration teams including; Accounts, Communications & Marketing, Information Communications and Technology, Project & Office Administration, Legal and Human Resources.

Awards don’t motivate us as much as the kudos we receive from satisfied clients, architects, building managers and building users, but they are always nice to win. Having said that, we’re the only practice to be crowned “CIBSE Building Performance Champion” twice (2022 and 2020), became BSRIA Soft Landings Practitioner of the Year in 2019, and were named ACE Inclusion & Diversity Champion in 2017. We’ve also had a project on four of the last five RIBA Stirling Prize shortlists.

It's conventional for businesses to say that they're an "equal opportunities employer" or that they "comply with the Equality Act" as a way of telling potential applicants that their business is a nice place to work. We are, and we do. But that's really only committing to an absence of discrimination, and for us that's not enough. Our commitment is not only to eliminate and avoid discrimination, but to create an environment where our differences can be celebrated and valued.
