We were the 4th construction business in the UK and the first civil and structural engineer, to gain the coveted BRE Level 2 BIM Global Business Systems Certification.

We are focused on development of staff and have employed 9 apprentices as well as 4 graduate engineers over the last 10 years. We offer in house training and mentoring and support our junior staff on their journey to become a professionally qualified engineer.

Adept is an Equal Opportunities Employer.


As a company we pride ourselves on having recruited both apprentices and graduates over recent years which has given them an opportunity to develop and grow along with the company. As a result we are always looking for potential new recruits who fit into the ethos of the company and would be interested to hear from any self motivated engineer, Revit or Civils 3D technician or prospective Civil Engineering apprentices.

Potential apprentices should ideally be studying their A-levels but may be looking for an alternative to a traditional University career path.

If you think you meet any of the above criteria then you can either write to us with a copy of your CV by email or post. Alternatively, you can call us and we’ll answer any questions you may have. See our Contact us section for details.

No Agencies please.
