Principal work streams

We're doing ground-breaking work at Dublin Airport – as part of a €2.9bn capital investment programme – and at Cork Airport. Join the teams tasked with designing, building and improving the terminals and airside environments, from sustainably sound lounges to creating a world-class traveller experience and enabling flawless, hi-tech efficiency through airside design.

You could support the detailed design of Dublin's Metrolink. This modern, interconnected transport system will ease congestion, offering faster, more convenient and cleaner transport. The teams also deliver expertise on the DART+ project, which will revolutionize travel in the Greater Dublin Area. It will promote multi-modal transit, active transport, boost regional connectivity and make public transport the preferred option for more and more people.

Support local authorities to shape the future of our towns and cities on projects, including Greenways and Active Travel schemes. Our teams are reimagining roads, bridges and civils to make zero-carbon travel safer, more fun and more accessible for pedestrians, cyclists and other non-motorized transport.

Your work will make a direct and tangible improvement to local communities, shaping buildings such as hospitals and schools and enhancing all people's experiences of vital places and spaces.

Our world is changing, yet so is our ability to engineer better solutions. At every point in your career, we'll enrich your knowledge of how to connect people, data and technology - so you can answer the need for more sustainable, healthy and inclusive societies.
