Job description / Role

Employment: Full Time

Cundall’s Civil Engineering is enormously proud of the exemplary track record of designing innovative and sustainable civil engineering and infrastructure solutions. The focus is on improving and protecting the environment in which we live, while providing the facilities for day-to-day life, ensuring that transport and industry function effectively.

As one of the longest established of Cundall’s many disciplines, the Civil Engineering team are a source of world leading expertise – and offer a pro-active and collaborative approach to skill development, and professional excellence.

In this Graduate Civil Engineer role, you’ll join a team in our Dubai office who specialise in the design of some of the most exciting construction projects in the UAE and worldwide.

Working closely with colleagues across our multi-disciplinary practice, you’ll provide specialist consultancy input on projects across a wide range of sectors including education, healthcare, workplace, retail, and critical systems (data centres).

Under the guidance of our team of experienced engineers, we’ll equip you to undertake detailed engineering design and analysis, define and translate clients’ needs into designs for buildings, critical infrastructure and services - all with sustainability at the forefront of the design. 

You’ll have the opportunity over time to assume greater levels of responsibility and autonomy as your professional skills develop and with accredited professional development programmes.


You are a UAE national accredited with, or on course to achieve a MEng degree level (or equivalent) in Civil or Building Services Engineering, you’re passionate about innovative and sustainable civil engineering for the built environment. Ideally, you’ll have furthered this interest by undertaking some form of relevant work experience or placement/internship.

An understanding of earthworks and highways would also be advantageous, as would theoretical knowledge of developing infrastructure schemes; ranging from Concept and Detailed Masterplanning, on to Detailed Design and Construction.

You have an appreciation for the core elements of civil engineering and crucially, have a love for creative and intuitive design.

Digital engineering is a big focus at Cundall, so ideally, you’ll have an understanding of Parametric Modelling Techniques (Grasshopper or Dynamo), or at least one modern programming language (e.g., Python, C#, VB). An understanding of Engineering Optimisation Techniques, the principles of structured programming and basic knowledge in the application of Machine Learning would also be desirable.

You are organized and methodical in your approach to managing your tasks and priorities, you strive to meet deadlines and have a close appreciation of the commercial factors which affect design solutions.

Collaborative in nature, you’ll be able to empathise with your clients’ needs and utilise excellent communication skills, both in writing and verbally, with internal and external stakeholders. You’re used to using your initiative to overcome challenges and have a positive, can-do attitude.

AED 10,000 to 15,000 per month inclusive of fixed allowances.
Additional benefits: Insurance
