As one of the world’s leading engineering, professional services and technical consultancy firms, at WSP we’re passionate about the big questions. And big answers, naturally. For us that’s all about reaching beyond the expected to do work that’ll make a profound impact felt long into the future.
We can offer you the opportunity to work alongside some of the world’s most exciting engineering and design projects. We invest in your learning and development and we value the ideas and innovation you could bring to our work. So, if you’re ready, we can’t wait to get you involved.
First though, we thought you’d like to know how our apprenticeship programme works. An apprenticeship enables you to earn a salary whilst you are studying for nationally recognised qualifications. You’ll get to work alongside and learn from our experts who have a wide range of knowledge, capability and experiences to share with you with a programme designed to provide you with the knowledge and skills to be a competent member of our team.
All in a Day’s work
There’s no such thing as a typical day at WSP. Your role will be varied and your learning will be fast paced. One day can be completely different to the next. You will have the opportunity to learn new skills using specialist software suited to the area of the business you are working in, such as AutoCAD and Revit.
You may be involved with taking concepts, ideas and designs from an architect or engineer and creating drawings using the software to match those given. If you’re pulling together packages of drawings you might need to print, trim and fold these to be sent off to site or the client.
Where practical, you’ll get the opportunity to visit site and see the projects you’ve been working on, coming to life.

You’ll be in your final year or have completed either your A Levels (or equivalent qualification type) with grades BBC and a grade C minimum in Maths or Further Maths and a physical science, or a Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma with grades DDM or above in an engineering related subject with a further maths component.
You’ll have five GCSEs (or equivalent qualification type) at grade C / Level 5 or above which must include English, Maths and Science with a least a grade B / Level 6 in Maths.
You’ll be enthusiastic with the curiosity and creativity to think outside of the box
You’ll want to stretch and inspire us, speaking up about any new ideas you have
You’ll know it is important to keep everyone in the loop and will demonstrate this through excellent communication skills
You’ll enjoy working in a team environment, sharing ideas and collaborating with colleagues
