You want to be a Chartered or Incorporated Engineer - and as quickly as possible. You want structured support and constant development. You want to work on a variety of projects, in a number of different areas, and learn from experts on the job. Well now you can.

Here at Devon County Council, we’re offering a fresh perspective for graduate civil engineers. Approved by the Institute of Civil Engineers, our graduate scheme will equip you with the skills, knowledge and confidence you need to excel in your career.

As Devon’s largest employer, with over 100 engineers, there’s certainly plenty of scope and opportunity for you and your career.  With 12,800 km of roads, Devon is home to the largest single road network in the country so no matter where your interests lie, be it highways, traffic, structural design, or waste management, you’ll have every opportunity to work on interesting and challenging projects in a variety of disciplines.

You’ll also have your own delegated engineer and benefit from placements across various engineering departments, giving you a real depth and breadth of knowledge to build on. All said and done, this is a unique opportunity to fast track your civil engineering career.

Of course, quality of work is one thing; quality of life, quite another. Fortunately, it’s yet another thing that Devon is famed for. As well as 23 days’ holiday, we offer flexitime, giving you every opportunity to explore Devon and its two moors, two coastlines and myriad of other attractions.
