About you 
You will have a Bachelor's degree (Master’s degree would be advantageous) in Civil or Geotechnical Engineering, have strong written and verbal communication skills, an enthusiasm for fieldwork and a willingness to constantly learn and develop.  
We believe that the best place to learn is on the job, so you can expect to work on real jobs for our client’s right from the start.  You’ll get ongoing support from experienced mentors, development opportunities, support towards professional memberships as well as a yearly graduate conference and access to an established and active graduate social community.
