Job description

Your role

Joining Egis in the UK as a graduate means you will become part of our Graduate Program, a tailored training schedule that supports you as you begin your career with us, giving you the skills to excel and achieve your goals.

We support you in fostering connections with colleagues from across the country through a variety of training and development sessions, networking lunches, site visits and technical training.

Our project advisory business operates across all stages of the project lifecycle and spans multiple technical disciplines including Project and Programme Management (PPM), economics, transport planning, town planning and environmental assessment.

Owing to a growing pipeline of project-related works, Egis is seeking a ‘project leader,’ ‘strategic thinker’ and ‘workstream integrator’ for the position of Project Management Graduate.

We are looking for candidates who can respond positively to ambiguity (a “blank page”) and can proactively bring order and structure to delivery.

The successful applicant is to have an appreciation of how transport can be the catalyst for regeneration and economic growth (including interactions with housing, commercial development, funding and financing and social policy) and be highly literate to autonomously author technical reports and develop strategy.

Focusing principally on feasibility stage projects (RIBA Stages 1-3) and operating by all necessary statutory/regulatory processes (HM Treasury Green Book, Environmental Impact Assessment, Town and Country Planning Act/Development Consent Order), the Graduate will support the integration of technical workstreams (including town planning, property, environment, design and cost estimation) to develop a coherent project delivery strategy on behalf of our clients.

As a Graduate, you will be responsible for ensuring that key project risks and constraints are identified at the earliest opportunity to inform client decision-making.


  • Graduate with a minimum of 2:1 in Project Management, now studying an MSc in Transport Planning, Town Planning or Urban Development.
  • You must be able to work concurrently on a wide range of built environment projects.
  • Your written and verbal presentation skills must be of a high standard.
  • Be able to analyse and summarise information and offer recommendations.
  • Have strong client people skills - you must enjoy the prospect of client engagement whether in workshops, training sessions, one-to-one meetings or simply networking.
  • An ability to get people to collaborate with you, resolve problems and reach agreement.
  • A focus on getting things done even when it feels difficult, to meet deadlines and targets, and feel comfortable working with both complex numerical and technical language and information.

The consultancy environment can be fast-paced with opportunities emerging at short notice that will require a flexible, agile approach to delivering excellence in service


If you join our Graduate programme, you will primarily specialise in transport infrastructure, but this may involve interactions with other built environment sectors.

You will visit our current project locations observing various stages of the project lifecycle, meeting the teams whilst also getting to know the other functions that support the business, such as finance, HR, and business development.

 You will receive intensive training so that you start to understand the delivery of projects within the UK, whilst also developing a personal development plan with your line manager.

To apply, please provide your CV and a cover letter expressing your interest and suitability for the role for which you have applied. 

 You Must Have the Right to Work in the UK 

 We are committed to our planet in each project we design, engineer, and operate we care deeply about the legacy we’re leaving behind. As part of our team, you will have a unique opportunity to use your skills and expertise to shape a better future for our communities in the UK, and all around the globe. [SP1] 

Our commitment is translated in the work conducted by our Egis Foundation, which funds concrete actions to address the climate crisis and is focused on educational and social initiatives that will help in the responsible and sustainable shift towards a sustainable world.
