This position is suitable for:
  • a graduate in civil engineering, or another built environment discipline
  • a gap year candidate with A levels in numerate / science topics seeking experience before going to university.
CIRIA is about sharing knowledge between the industry, its clients, regulators and policy-makers and developing best practice guidance delivered through publications, web sites, events and training. You would work alongside a number of CIRIA’s project managers on a variety of these activities.

The ideal candidate would:

  • be well organised, with good attention to detail.
We offer travel and subsistence costs, and the opportunity to attend CIRIA CPD events. The position would be for up to 3 months. Finally, while we cannot promise, a number of previous interns have been offered permanent roles or paid contracts at CIRIA.
