Project Centre’s Graduate Programme 2017

OUR GRADUATE PROGRAMME
Now in its third year, our highly successful graduate programme has once again attracted a strong list of candidates and we are delighted to have appointed four successful applicants.
We consider applicants for a wide range of roles, including civil engineers, transport planners, urban and landscape designers, traffic engineers, AutoCAD or GIS specialists, traffic order makers, traffic modellers and development planners. Specific experience or knowledge of one or more of these areas is not a pre-requisite; we provide the training and guidance needed for candidates with the right academic background and aptitude. The programme allows our graduates to gain experience in various technical disciplines before deciding where their skills would best fit in the longer-term.
