Taking your career forward with Arup

Whether you are at school and unsure of your next move, are looking to study a Level 7 Apprenticeship to top up an existing qualification, or simply want a change in career direction, we’d like to hear from you.

Apprentice recruitment

Each year we recruit apprentices across our UK offices, in 16 locations.

Our apprentices start in September each year, and before joining you'll have the opportunity to learn more about our firm, what we are working on and how to prepare for your apprenticeship. You will also meet some of your fellow apprentices from across the UK, connect with your team and colleagues, and begin developing your own Arup network.

From the moment you start, you will have the support of a manager, a mentor and your education provider.
