Meet our people
Arup's flexibility means I can take time out to complete my master's degree and have the time be there for my kid's events ̶ it's a good balance.
I've enjoyed working for Arup in five countries, including Australia, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, and New Zealand…shaping projects all around the globe is a massive privilege that the job brings.
Our employee ownership model recognises the staff's contribution to the firm's success; it's great to feel part of a global community aligned with shared values.
Joining Arup is joining a community of professionals who aspire to better themselves and better society.
I love that I’m helping to shape our environment and solve problems for the greater good.
