With a love of innovation from design to project management, we are the trusted consultants that make the extraordinary possible. That’s why, at Arup, the possibilities are infinite. Established in Ireland in 1946, we have over 600+ staff across our Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway offices.
Arup Ireland are seeking talented students to join our team over the period of a few months. We look for students who are ready to jump into the professional world; diverse individuals with inquisitive minds and a desire to challenge. You will work alongside skilled professionals and contribute to the success of real projects. You will also enjoy learning sessions with technical experts within your team, working on local projects and all kinds of social events. You’ll notice that we’re not the only organisation to work on large-scale, high-profile projects. Or the only one to have thousands of staff around the globe. Nor are we the only one to offer our clients a multidisciplinary service. So you might be wondering what sets us apart. On July 9, 1970, our founder, Ove Arup stood before his partners in Winchester, England and made what would become known as ‘The Key Speech’. “We shape a better world” was his message and it remains our mantra. Because we’re independent, we can do well by doing good. Owned in trust for the benefit of our employees, we don’t have to answer to external stakeholders. Instead we live according to ‘reasonable prosperity’. Naturally, as a business we make a profit. But what we do with it is rather different from the norm. 60% of our profits are reinvested back into the company. This goes to research, training, sports and social activities; to our charities, and to allow us to take risks on projects. 40% is shared between employees in our profit share scheme. And that’s it – none goes on anything else. People trump profits. Like our founder, we are part engineer, part philosopher. We are 12,000 designers, planners, engineers, consultants and technical specialists free to bend steel to our idealistic will. We are the defenders of visions against the barrage of short-term distractions. And we serve only our clients, our community and our conscience. Because Arup is not just our company. It’s our legacy.
