At RPS we work as one team to achieve exceptional outcomes, and joining the Graduate Scheme is no different. From early on in your career you’ll have exposure to sustainable projects, experience true support and encouragement and be trusted to work in a way that’s right for you.
We encourage and value different ideas, perspectives, and styles of thinking. We believe diversity in skills and experience fosters innovation, enables us to push boundaries and solve problems that matter.
We're looking for people who turn challenges into opportunities, those who are keen to learn and develop, and intelligent risk takers who are not scared to try new things. If that sounds like you, we have opportunities across the UK and Ireland spanning design, project management, planning and environmental disciplines.
At RPS you’ll be supported by some of the brightest minds in the industry. Here you can build the foundations of your consultancy career by developing skills, knowledge and behaviours; building experience and achievements into real expertise.
The Graduate Scheme provides a structured programme of processes, support and training packages. Our training supports the core competencies of technical charterships and we're also an accredited training provider for the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM).
Beyond the programme we offer progression opportunities to the highest level professional qualifications and charterships (master’s Level 7) in both technical disciplines and in leadership & management. We prioritise our people and their progression, and we're committed to supporting you as far as you want to go.
We are recruiting across our Consulting business and have multiple opportunities across disciplines and locations. Click here to search all graduate opportunities.
Please only make one graduate application for the opportunity that is best suited to you. We only accept one application from each candidate per graduate intake, however, you’ll have the option to select multiple locations depending on the opportunities we have available. Please make sure you read the job description attached to each role so you can make sure you have selected the right role for you.
Before making your application, please ensure you meet the minimum entry requirements by checking the job description.
As well as the right qualifications and skillsets, we also look for candidates who demonstrate RPS' values and a passion to improve environments and communities. We look for confident, numerate and analytical team players with first-class communication skills, positive attitudes, and the drive and determination to succeed.
We're always looking for exceptional people in a range of fields across our areas of expertise.
We do have the option to offer sponsorship under Skilled Worker Visas. This means we can sponsor candidates who don’t currently have the right to work in the UK but possess a valid Student visa or Graduate Visa. We're also able to support candidates with pre-settled or settled status.
