Undergraduate Work Placements and Internships

Spending time working at Arcadis prior to graduating is a brilliant way to kickstart your career and get first-hand experience of life at Arcadis. Not only will you get to work alongside skilled professionals, but you’ll have the opportunity to contribute to real projects and get hands on experience whilst earning a salary. You will also be given the opportunity to join our Graduate GROW programme after successful completion of your degree (subject to performance and availability). Those looking to join us as an undergraduate have two options: Internships (6-10 week summer placements) or Work Placements (10-12 month industrial placements).

Whichever route you chose, you’ll have the opportunity to improve quality of life. Whether you’re helping our clients to get value for money and bold, digitally enabled solutions; working on building smart infrastructural solutions; supporting on organising the creation of large, complex and iconic programs of work; or supporting on projects concerned with protecting our environment and water resources. You’ll have the opportunity to enrich lives and enable communities to thrive. During your placement you will earn a salary and we will provide you with the experience you require to support and finalise your studies. You’ll benefit from on-the-job training, mentoring, and the assistance you need to develop and succeed.
