I was inspired to join by my father who used to be Mott MacDonald’s client. He always spoke highly of the company and its staff.


(Technical director)

Our presence in the UAE has spanned over 50 years. In this time, we’ve contributed to a variety of developments across several disciplines including energy, environment, oil and gas and water.

Notable projects include the launch of the Surface Transport Master Plan (STMP), the public transport network which aims to connect all cities and districts in Abu Dhabi and aid the movement of people and goods. As a result of STMP and other ventures alike, we’re helping to support the increasing growth of Abu Dhabi.

We’re also helping to tackle stormwater flows and allow water recovery and reuse as part of the Strategic Tunnel Enhancement Programme (STEP). Over 100m deep and 50m across, STEP is one of the biggest underground pumping stations in the world. We look for specialists who can get involved with all aspects of projects like this, such as cost, health, safety and environmental.

Over in Dubai, we’ve completed phase one of the Marina Arcade Project, to help meet the rising need for quality apartments within this region. Developments such as this offer ongoing opportunities for talented quantity surveyors to be part of significant real estate projects within the Middle East.

Civil, electrical and mechanical engineering jobs in the UAE

We have been instrumental within civil, electrical and mechanical engineering sectors in locations such as Dubai and Abu Dhabi. For instance, we have created a new state of the art shopping centre with 430 retail outlets, an indoor skydiving centre, and a 12 screen cinema. This is the first facility of its kind in the region to implement environmentally friendly and sustainable construction procedures from the design stage through to conception.

Similarly, we were given the challenge to improve and expand the Mall of the Emirates in Dubai. Our engineering team responded to this through vertical expansion only, in which the roof of the mall was converted into a third retail level. In addition, an extra level was added to the existing car park which created 750 new spaces. The expansion has resulted in added revenue, without the cost of purchasing any land.

Who do we look for?

We look for talented engineers who can flourish while undertaking hugely impactful ventures like these. There are many opportunities to join us within the energy sector, with jobs ranging from project manager in the delivery of 400kV transmission projects to resident civil cable engineer of EHV transmission cable projects.

You could lead one of our multidisciplinary project teams or be involved in overseeing the design and construction of major projects. At Mott MacDonald, we value thorough technical knowledge, sound judgement, strong analytical and problem solving skills, as well as a full understanding of the health and safety requirements involved in our projects.

We’re committed to carrying on our development within the Middle East, which wouldn’t be possible without our people who are central to our success. This is why we’ll continue to identify and develop individuals by providing rewarding and long term careers within the UAE.
