Electrical Engineering Placement
Around the globe, Arup's electrical engineers bring specialist expertise to solutions for buildings, transport infrastructure and energy, water and waste utilities. Our comprehensive services include energy audits, demand assessment, supply and system resilience, utilities consultancy and sustainable electrical engineering design. Whether in commercial property, retail, sport, mission-critical facilities, the arts or any market, we meet the creative and commercial demands of designers and developers.
Our electrical specialists work seamlessly with mechanical and environmental services engineers to create complete building services solutions. We also work closely with lighting designers, façade engineers, theatre consultants and museum and gallery designers to realise expressive design ideas. Beyond standard areas of overlap, Arup expects its electrical engineers to become creative partners in the design process. Our collaborative approach is supported by advanced 3D modelling methods, known as building information modelling (BIM), that allow design teams to share an intelligent virtual project prototype.
At Arup, we are leaders rather than followers in technical advances and sustainability. Through in-house research and development, we ensure that clients get the benefit, rather than the risk, of innovation. As new energy ideas such as smart grids emerge, Arup helps clients understand where they are appropriate and viable in their businesses.
We are currently recruiting for Industrial Trainee Electrical Engineers to join our well-established Building Design teams during their mid-degree for a 11-12 month placement. Industrial Trainees will be working in a multi-disciplinary office, preparing designs in co-ordination with their team as well as external architects, surveyors, contractors and clients for projects across a wide range of markets.

We ask that you are flexible on location as you may at times be required to work from other locations across the UK. This is dependent upon the needs of our clients and business.
