Graduate Vertical Transportation Engineer 2024

The Opportunity 

Around the globe, Arup's vertical transportation engineers bring specialist expertise to solutions for buildings and transport infrastructure. Our comprehensive services include vertical transportation engineering design for both new and refurbished buildings; we are also involved in condition surveys of existing lifts and escalators.  

Whether in healthcare, residential, sport, the arts, commercial building or any market, we meet the creative and commercial demands of our designers, clients and developers. Our specialists work seamlessly with structural, building services, and other specialist engineers to create complete building solutions. 

Beyond standard areas of responsibility, Arup expects its vertical transportation engineers to become creative partners in the design process working closely with architects to ensure the movement of people and goods around buildings in an efficient and co-ordinated manner. If you have curiosity, personal drive and an understanding of (or a willingness to learn about) the Vertical Transportation sector, we would love to hear from you. 

At Arup, we are leaders rather than followers in technical advances and sustainability. Through in-house research and development and a host of previous cutting-edge projects, we ensure that clients get the benefit, rather than the risk, of innovation. We look not only at the capital cost of new installations but the space efficiency and energy costs to arrive at optimum solutions.  

You will be working in a multi-disciplinary office, preparing designs in co-ordination with project teams as well as external architects, surveyors, contractors and clients for projects across a wide range of markets. You'll have the opportunity to work on a massive variety of projects, located all over the world and at different project stages. You will gain a thorough understanding of the role of a design engineer, experience the use of software design programmes and visit sites to see the work undertaken while at the same time working towards chartership. 

Is this role right for you? 

For this opportunity, we are seeking the following qualifications, skills and attributes:  

  • Studying towards or have obtained an accredited Masters degree in a STEM subject, including Architectural Engineering, with a prediction of 2:1 or above  
  • An interest in architecture and the built environment  
  • Enthusiasm for a career in building design 
  • Organised approach to planning work and meeting deadlines 
  • Demonstrate a creative and inquisitive approach to problem solving 
  • The aptitude to work on your own initiative and to be proactive 

We're looking for people who are curious and ready to evolve how you think and work.  Our strength comes from how we respect, share and connect our diverse experiences, perspectives and ideas. At Arup, you belong to an extraordinary collective – in which we encourage individuality to thrive. If you can share your knowledge and ideas and encourage others to do the same; whilst having a desire to deliver excellent services for clients – we'd like to hear from you. 


You should be able to start this opportunity in September 2024.
