What are your options?
We offer a range of opportunities for you to pursue as an apprentice.
In civil engineering, you'll help to create environments where people can live and flourish. With our apprenticeship, you'll contribute to the design, construction and maintenance of structures, from stadiums and motorways to rail and waterways.
In transport planning, you'll have an impact on the journeys of many people. Working alongside our experts, you'll help to ensure that the future designs of transport and traffic plans, schemes, and systems will benefit the public and sustain the environment.
Building services engineering
In building services engineering, you'll be involved with designing eye catching buildings around the world. From keeping houses warm and cosy to providing schools with lighting and power, you'll be working to ensure that buildings are not only comfortable, but also safe and energy efficient while developing skills across a range of applications.
In quantity surveying, you'll play a key role in building projects. You'll be managing and reporting on costs from the design of a project through to its completion. You'll also be contributing to bids for tenders and ensuring quality standards are met.
This is all about solving problems and ensuring our business and our projects operate efficiently and deliver on their objectives. Join our experts and learn how to fix problems and make recommendations, and take the opportunity to constantly meet and work with new people.
The environment needs protecting and our environmental practitioners are the perfect people for the job. Join them and help protect the planet.
To deliver outstanding outcomes and achieve project objectives, you need project managers. Join us and learn how to manage the projects of the future.
Do you have sharp observation skills and a digital mindset? Then put your talents to use to collect, analyse and manipulate geographical data with GIS technology.
What else will you get?
On top of a professionally recognised qualification, you'll get so much more. As an apprentice at Mott MacDonald, you’ll be right in the thick of all the action. As soon as you join us, you’ll be signed up to attend the apprentice weekend, a two day residential event. It’s a weekend of fun and socialising which will challenge you and allow you to develop your key soft skills.
It doesn’t stop there. An apprenticeship is a great route into the industry. Not only will you be earning a salary straight away but you’ll also get the chance to expand your knowledge by attending university or college once a week. You’ll be given a mentor to support your development while learning from our industry experts on the job and constantly discovering new and exciting things.

A supportive environment
The jump into a new career can be daunting, and we’re on hand to make sure our apprentices have the support and guidance they need every step of the way. Alongside a line manager, apprentices are assigned a mentor to ensure their consistent development as they progress within their role.
