A leading international consultancy that advises clients how to make the most from their investment and expenditure in built assets. Our major clients and projects span across a number of sectors and include Shell Global Enterprise Services Framework, Belfast Titanic, the British Royal Wedding and Jubilee Celebrations, Doha Festival City, Ashgal Qatar, UK Offshore Wind Farms, BAA and the Singapore Sports Hub plus many more.

The EC Harris vision is simple – to be leaders in the built asset consultancy field whilst generating value for our clients and the community. Our people are vital to achieving this, so we ensure each of our 2,700 employees has all the support they need to reach their potential. We are part of the wider Arcadis group of over 18,000 employees and we provide consultancy services to clients across the globe.

Training and Development

A Year Out or a Summer Placement with the firm will provide an ideal platform for your early professional and personal development, with every support to help you begin a successful and rewarding career.

A Year Out (in the third year of your sandwich degree) will give you the chance to be involved in real projects across our key sectors. From the outset, you’ll be applying your knowledge and incorporating this with continuous learning from our innovative practices. You’ll also gain the skills and experience to start working towards your Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) or equivalent qualification. As well as attending in-house training sessions, you’ll be guided by a counsellor and supervisor. Depending on your performance, we might be able to sponsor your final year at university and offer you a graduate position once you finish your degree.

Alternatively, you could take a Summer Placement. Spending 6-12 weeks with us over the summer is a great way to pick up hands-on experience. You'll gain broad knowledge and an understanding of your future career prospects, as well as having a great time with the team. If it all goes well, there is the opportunity for either a future placement or final year sponsorship and a graduate job offer.

Career progression

Development and training is a non-stop process at EC Harris. Through our blended learning programme, we’ll ensure you’re continually learning – allowing you to grow in our transparent development structure and become one of our future leaders. What’s more, you’ll get involved in different projects, move into different areas of the business and maybe even work overseas in one of our international offices.
