We love welcoming new graduates into the JBA family and, in addition to advertising specific graduate-level posts throughout the year, we have a dedicated annual graduate recruitment drive.
Tailored support to help you lay the foundations for your future career
As a Graduate on our scheme, you’ll follow a supported two-year development programme focussed around a core set of competencies that will help you develop the know-how and confidence to succeed. To ensure you’re able to lay the foundations for your future career you’ll also have the opportunity to tailor your experience to one (or sometimes more!) of five technical pathways.
Designed to help you build on your existing knowledge and experience our graduate pathways present the perfect opportunity for you to take significant strides towards your dream career. You’ll also have various training options throughout the scheme and be supported every step of the way by our in-house industry experts and dedicated Graduate Scheme Coordinators.
Data science and informatics
Much of the work we do in is reliant on handling, manipulating and interrogating data, which is why we’re excited to have introduced our data science and informatics pathway. If you have experience or an aptitude for exploring and analysing complex datasets, and enjoy solving problems using a combination of mathematical, statistical and computing skills, this is the perfect pathway.
Water management and geoscience
Supporting our work in flood risk management, tidal and coastal risk management and water resource management, this pathway gives you the opportunity to play a role in addressing the biggest issues in climatic and geological resilience. You’ll learn data collection, management and verification and analysis skills, techniques for hydrological, hydrogeological, hydraulic, coastal and water quality modelling and the strategic policy and law that influences how these techniques are used.
Environmental management and sustainability
Environmental management, sustainability and resilience is a critical area for JBA. This pathway is for you if wish to develop or build upon existing knowledge and skills in carbon management, environmental and ecological economics, land-use management, ecological survey, environmental impact assessments, landscape, environmental planning, and stakeholder engagement.
If you have a background in civil, structural, geotechnical, coastal, mechanical, or electrical engineering, our engineering pathway could be the perfect fit. By joining the team you’ll build practical experience by working across the flood risk management, rail, coastal, highways and bridges, and development sectors, whilst being mentored every step of the way.
Technology, data and software development
Our software/systems development pathway provides an opportunity to gain experience in the application of the software development life cycle, whilst also being exposed to multiple software languages and database technologies. You’ll also learn about advanced data and GIS analysis, high performance processing (distributed CPU and GPU) and system and architecture design through working on a variety of consultancy and research projects.
