“Work experience is of real value both for the student and us as a business. It provides the student an insight into the work place, industry and possible careers, while developing general business awareness, confidence and helping them for future study or job interviews.”

Julie Dakin

Metros and civil regional director

Are you interested in learning more about the world around you? Do you enjoy studying science, technology, engineering or maths (STEM)? If the answer is yes, and you’d love to see how STEM subjects are applied to the real world, then our Finding Your Future work experience programmes could be just the thing for you.

Not only will a work experience programme at Mott MacDonald give you an inside look at what it’s like working for a global engineering and management consultancy, but you’ll also gain first-hand knowledge of the diverse range of career possibilities our industry has to offer.

What to expect?

You will be assigned a host team, who will mentor you throughout the week and answer all your questions. You will have a choice of three projects to complete, which will deepen your understanding of the sector and develop your employability skills. Completing the Finding Your Future work experience programme will lead to you gaining a Silver Level Industrial Cadets Award.

Who can apply?

Anyone who is interested in learning about careers in STEM, this may be the right thing for them. You do not need to know anything about the industry, just a willingness to learn and make the most of the opportunity!

Our work experience is available to anyone who has not yet started higher education. We offer work experience in the office as well as virtually, if this is required, so you do not need to be close to an office to apply.

Applications for our summer 2024 work experience programme have now closed. For details of our summer 2025 work experience programme please visit this page again in the autumn when further details will be provided.

Our work experience programme proved to be a huge success last year and we received some great feedback from students:

“Everyone I met at Mott Macdonald was so welcoming and kind and it was clear how much they all loved their jobs. It looks like an amazing place to work and I feel very lucky to have spent a week in the London office. Thank you so much for organising such great work experience.”

“Thank you for the opportunity for this work experience I found it very useful to cover all aspects of the business as I didn’t realize how broad the services lines there are at Mott Macdonald.”
