    Cundall are an award winning international multi-disciplinary consultancy for buildings, operating throughout the UK, Australia, Asia, MENA and Europe.

    Our many disciplines include Building Services, Sustainable Design (ESD) as well as a range of exciting specialisms including Acoustics, Fire Engineering, Town Planning, Transportation Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering and Lighting Design.


    As a medium-sized, but truly international consultancy, we are big enough to be able to provide a wide range of challenging projects for our staff, but still at a size where our students can be treated as individuals, and given real responsibility at an early stage.

You will work closely with our team of sustainability engineers and gain exposure to sustainable building design across a range of interesting and challenging jobs, across a variety of real projects with real clients. 


    Under the guidance of our team of expert engineers this role will provide you with opportunities to assist our design team in performing sustainability design analysis, microclimate analysis, computational simulation (such as energy and daylight modelling, CFD etc.), manage green building certification, develop strategies for water conservation, consider green materials, transportation, undertake energy audits, and other related duties.
