What will the apprentice be doing?

Right now, we're looking for an Advanced Project Controls Apprentice to join our team in Bristol.

From your first day, you'll join an unrivalled community of experts, where everyone is supported in their career path and encouraged to work towards an accredited qualification. 

With our global reach and multi-disciplinary approach, Arup is involved in major rail projects in the UK and worldwide. With over 25 years of rail planning, design, and construction experience, we offer our clients a broad spectrum of consulting services including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Strategic advice
  • Cost
  • Demand and revenue forecasting
  • Business case analysis
  • Feasibility studies
  • Asset management
  • Detailed design
  • Implementation and commissioning and project creation

The focus of the person sought for this role is to support senior planners/schedulers with the control of time during the design and construction stages of engineering projects.

Working typically on large-scale or complex programmes and projects, our role in this area is essential to provide useful insight and recommendation to inform remedial actions and ultimately, the success of the project.

What training will the apprentice take and what qualification will the apprentice get at the end?

As part of your apprenticeship, you'll study towards the Level 3 Project Control Technician qualification.

You'll study at a local partner college on day release, and combine this experience with real responsibilities in the workplace.

What is the expected career progression after this apprenticeship?

When joining us as one of our apprentices, you’ll enjoy the opportunity to study for a paid, professionally-recognised qualification in a discipline that will help you further your career.

Throughout your apprenticeship, you’ll have access to our online network. You’ll also take internal courses. These cover technical aspects of the business, such as software, but also vital ‘soft’ skills such as report writing and working effectively.

Our apprentices are employed on a permanent basis, so you'll continue to progress with Arup once you've completed your course.
