Graduate Engineers

We are looking for talented Engineers to join us in Summer/Autumn 2019.

Who we are and what we do:

We are Wood Thilsted, a young, ambitious engineering consultancy with focus on geotechnical and structural engineering.

We are currently 25 engineers in three countries working on world-leading designs for offshore wind farms around the world (Northern Europe, Asia and North America), using a combination of advanced engineering methods and clever thinking to develop projects faster, cheaper and with less risk. Additionally we are involved in a number of cutting edge onshore geotechnical projects, involving deep basements and tunnels in challenging conditions.

We spend quite a bit of our time developing our own software and design methods that allow us to challenge the status quo.

What we offer to you as a Graduate:

Close mentoring and support towards chartership with either the ICE or IStructE.

Depending on your skills and interests you will have the opportunity to gain a multidisciplinary range of experience. You will be under close support and guidance from a more senior member of staff.

Our office and culture is relaxed and supportive. We aim to internally have a strong culture based on mutual trust, knowledge sharing and a good social atmosphere.
