We are an independent firm of designers, planners, engineers, consultants and technical specialists offering a broad range of professional services. Through our work, we make a positive difference in the world. We shape a better world.
Founded in 1946 with an initial focus on structural engineering, Arup first came to the world’s attention with the structural design of the Sydney Opera House, followed by its work on the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Arup has since grown into a truly multidisciplinary organisation. Most recently, its work for the Singapore Sports Hub has reaffirmed its reputation for delivering innovative and sustainable designs that reinvent the built environment.
Arup brings together broad-minded individuals from a wide range of disciplines and encourages them to look beyond the constraints of their own specialisms.
This unconventional approach to design springs in part from Arup’s ownership structure. The firm is owned in trust on behalf of its staff. The result is an independence of spirit that is reflected in the firm’s work, and in its dedicated pursuit of technical excellence.
A career at Arup offers you the chance to make a positive difference in the world. Independently owned and independently minded, we attract a diverse mix of people to work on ground breaking projects around the world. You will find a rich culture that is naturally curious and always stimulating.
Our employees tell us that they are proud to work at Arup.
This pride comes from the firm’s unique values, which stem from our special independent ownership structure. It comes from the opportunities they get to work with talented people – leading experts who are keen to share their knowledge. And it comes from working on some of the most exciting projects in the world, supported by unrivalled opportunities for learning.
Not to worry - we still have lots of opportunities available on RateMyPlacement.
