Graduate Programme

A Career Less Ordinary

How does it feel to open a new hotel or organise the dry docking of a World War I Battleship?

These are some of the daily challenges Artelia graduates are working on.

As part of an international group, our clients range from global conglomerates to hoteliers, retailers, healthcare trusts, schools, universities, museums and UNESCO World Heritage sites. This makes for tremendously varied career opportunities and because we are a smaller, more agile consultancy, you will be an important member of the team, taking responsibility much faster than at other firms.


Training and development

Our graduate programmes in Project Management and Quantity Surveying have been carefully developed to provide you with the skills and experience you need to become an industry-leading consultant.

Quantity Surveying/Cost Management graduates follow the assessment of professional competence (APC) programme, successful completion of which leads to the designation MRICS.

“As a Graduate Project Manager I have been working as part of Artelia’s Healthcare team, on projects for Epsom & St Helier and Princess Alexandra Hospitals. It is really exciting to know that I am actively participating in the transformation of these two big hospital Trusts. Artelia is very supportive of my personal development. There is regular training covering different aspects of the industry from procurement and contracts to BIM. The Artelia Graduate scheme is a great way to start your career.”

“The mentoring is excellent. I’m benefitting greatly from the time senior associates take to offer advice and explain new concepts to me. I don’t think you realise quite how much you are absorbing as you work day to day on different projects.”
