About the employer
As one of the world’s leading engineering, professional services and technical consultancy firms, at WSP, we’re passionate about the big questions. And big answers, naturally. For us that’s all about reaching beyond the expected to do work that’ll make a profound impact felt long into the future.
We can offer you the opportunity to work on some of the world’s most exciting engineering and design projects. We invest in your learning and development and we value the ideas and innovation you could bring to our work. So, if you’re ready, we can’t wait to get you involved.
Firstly though, we thought you’d like to know how our Apprenticeship Development scheme works. An apprenticeship enables you to earn a salary whilst you are studying for nationally recognised qualifications. You’ll get to work alongside and learn from our experts who have a wide range of knowledge, capability and experiences to share with you with a programme designed to provide you with the knowledge and skills for a successful career with us.
37.5 Hours per Week, Monday to Friday, 9.00am to 5.30pm (including college attendance). Total hours per week: 37.50
There’s no such thing as a typical day at WSP. Your role will be varied and your learning will be fast paced. One day can be completely different to the next. You will have the opportunity to learn new skills using specialist software suited to the area of the business you are working in, such as AutoCAD and Revit.
You may be involved with taking concepts, ideas and designs from an architect or engineer and creating drawings using the software to match those given. If you’re pulling together packages of drawings you might need to print, trim and fold these to be sent off to site or the client.
Where practical, you’ll get the opportunity to visit site and see the projects you’ve been working on, coming to life.
The role involves supporting other Engineers and Technicians to design a range of Highway schemes from footway improvements, Carriageway resurfacing, drainage and larger projects including junction and roundabout design on projects ranging from £5k to ££100m. Initially new starters will be working on smaller schemes and after a short period of time will be expected to take ownership of smaller projects.
Within this role as an Apprentice Civil Engineer, your duties will include:
- Learning all aspects of civil engineering
- Learning to use different types of equipment
- Following safety standards at all times
- Assisting with project plans, technical information and designs for projects
- Interpreting drawings and making calculations
- Using computer software programmes for drawings (CAD)
- Assisting with the preparation of estimates
- Assisting with reports and projects
- Attending meeting with clients
- Liaising with various teams within the business as required
- Assisting with all associated paperwork
