Calling all Dreamers, Doers and Game Changers…
Have you ever thought about the world around you? The streets we walk down, the bridges we cross and the buildings that surround us, all started as a concept that has been built into reality. As a global design and engineering consultancy, we help connect the dots that shape our everyday life.
At Stantec, our mission is to design with community in mind. To do this, we need your curiosity, imagination, and passion to help design the face of the future, transforming the way we live by creating sustainable solutions for generations to come.
Our apprenticeship programme is designed for those who are passionate to continue learning, yet keen to kickstart their career and earn a living – who said you can’t have both? We give you the ultimate platform to build the foundations of your career in your chosen discipline. Not only will you be supported to develop your technical skills, but you will also increase your exposure on real projects from start to finish. The benefit of taking an apprenticeship with Stantec is that our career development framework is designed to develop softer skills as well as complement your studies, taking you one step closer to becoming professionally chartered. The best part is your professional qualifications are fully funded by us.
We have an opportunity for a Level 6 Apprentice Hydrologist to start in Summer/Autumn 2023 to be based in our Reading office.
In this apprenticeship you will support our Hydrology team, their work is to help provide clients with innovative sustainable ways to use water, one of our most precious natural assets. You will be part of a team that support the delivery of improved engineering solutions for the water environment.
Hydrologists study the impact of rainfall, rivers, and waterways on the environment. This team provides engineering and modelling solutions to clients, advising on planning for water resource needs in a future impacted by both population growth and climate change.
You will be exposed to various types of projects:
Natural flood risk management and alleviation schemes
River and waterways structures
Planning on how to facilitate development on flood risk
You will support by undertaking various engineering and design activities. You will learn how to use relevant software and programs such as Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Microdrainage to visually see the process of what we produce, how it is planned and how flood risks are managed before anything gets built.
This is a great role for anyone who has a passion for sustainability and looking at ways we can manage and respond to the impact of the climate emergency.
Our apprenticeships allow you to learn whilst you earn as you study for an academic qualification. You’ll get the chance to expand your knowledge by attending university on day release. You will gain a Level 6 BEng Civil Engineering degree.
For our apprenticeships no previous experience is required If you are self-motivated, proactive, and eager to learn then this could be for you.
For a Level 6 apprenticeship you will need 3 A Levels Grade B or above in (Maths, Further Maths or Science) and/or BTEC Extended Diploma in Engineering – DMM to include Further Engineering Mathematics.

Inclusion & Diversity
At Stantec, we create opportunity by inviting, embracing, and celebrating differences. This goal remains at the heart of our efforts to champion inclusion and diversity throughout our organisation. To achieve that goal, we must continue to build an inclusive workplace that empowers and inspires but also attracts and nurtures the very best talent from all over the world.
We champion inclusion for two reasons. First, because it’s the right thing to do; everyone deserves the freedom to bring their whole selves to work without fear of judgement or discrimination. And second, because an inclusive workplace culture attracts and invites the full spectrum of talent into the organisation. At Stantec we have various Employee Resource groups (ERG’s), these groups create a safe space for employees to discuss the issues surrounding personal experiences and encourage all employees to be their true self!
Some of our ERG’s include Neurodiversity Employee Resource Group, Pride@Stantec and Women@Stantec. For more information on our ERG’s and Stantec UK Inclusion & Diversity approach please go to
