    Beginning your career

    12% of our employees have graduate, apprenticeship or trainee roles. This is well above the industry average so you can be confident we’ll give you a good start to your career. This figure doesn’t include the summer placement students we provide opportunities to and who typically return to fill graduate positions with us on completion of their studies.




    It’s not always easy to know what you will want long term, as you start out on a career. With that in mind, our programme is designed to be supportive and flexible. We will provide the structure you need and you will be encouraged to shape your career as you go.

    Our graduate programme foundations are based around technical, professional, and soft skills.

    You will begin by attending an induction programme where you will meet other new entry graduates, apprentices, trainees and year in industry placement students. Here you can start to build relationships with your cohort that may go on to last a lifetime.

    Meeting regularly with your peer group to share experiences and to support each other with your career development is embedded within the programme. You will also be partnered with one of our more experienced members of the programme, who will share their knowledge and answer those questions others may not be able to.

    You will have access to our new entrant development programme team space, where you will find a wide range of resources to help you in your long-term learning.

    Knights Brown offers an ICE accredited programme or equivalent professional programme for other chosen disciplines.




    We love having talented, new people join our team. If you have questions about our programme or wish to be considered for a graduate/trainee position or placement, please contact us.

    Giving something back

    Today, work life balance and having an ethical purpose are important for many people in their career. We agree, and so we encourage all our employees to give something back to the community.

    Employer supported volunteering

    You will be entitled to a day’s paid leave annually to volunteer for a cause close to your heart.

    This day can be taken individually or with a team of like-minded colleagues to work on a community project for the day.

    Support for good causes

    For four years Knights Brown partnered with consulting engineer, Tony Gee, to support the charity Bridges to Prosperity.

    In that time our 20 volunteers assisted in the building of four footbridges, two in Rwanda and a further two in Uganda, providing rural communities access to the healthcare, education and economic opportunity that allowed them to help themselves out of the isolation that’s a root cause of poverty.

    Whilst hugely successful, in 2019 feedback from our employee survey suggested moving towards a more local approach that would be accessible to more people. Today, we have graduates working on a project to identify a new cause for Knights Brown to support, one that will inspire our employees and we will all wish to actively support.
