Dependant on the specific area of the business you apply to we accept a vast number of degree disciplines including Architecture, Engineering, Planning, Surveying, Business, Environmental & Physical Sciences, Project Management, Technical & Numerate and Telecommunications. A minimum 2:2 is expected, but the website will give details of exact requirements.
Each year, we employ in the region of 250 highly driven graduates.

Your communication skills will be put to good use as you translate complex ideas into clear concepts. You should also enjoy working in a team environment, interacting with clients and colleagues at all levels, yet have the confidence to work independently and make your own decisions.
