Working with Elliott Wood

Working with Elliott Wood

Elliott Wood people are no ordinary engineers. We are activists for a new kind of engineering profession, where technical and creative thinking work together, and in which our craft is re-evaluated by both clients and collaborators.

If, like us, you are interested in engineering a better society – and a better way of working – we would love to hear directly from you. We welcome speculative applications from extraordinary people in the built environment.

To find out more or apply, please email your CV and covering letter to our HR team at

Please note, that we do not work with recruitment agencies unless they have been specifically engaged directly by our HR team.

Beyond any individual’s talents or qualifications, they must like us, have an open mind to what our work can achieve. Each of us at Elliott Wood are bound together by a shared purpose – a belief – that through our work on projects, large and small, we can Engineer a Better Society. It’s why we encourage all of our team to embrace all forms of personal development – be it through training, developing new tools for our industry or partaking in charitable work.

The investment to develop staff, the in-house Academy and the encouragement to push boundaries, gives staff confidence and inspiration
