Careers – Practice
Elliott Wood people are no ordinary engineers. We are activists for a new kind of engineering profession, in which technical and creative thinking are combined, and in which our craft is re-evaluated by clients and collaborators.
If, like us, you are interested in engineering a better society – and a better profession – we would love to hear from you. We welcome speculative applications from extraordinary engineers as well as those for the specific vacancies listed.
To find out more or apply, please email your CV and covering letter to our HR Team at firstname.lastname@example.org
At Elliott Wood, we are committed to being an equal opportunities employer, as such we strive for diversity and inclusion in the workplace and welcome the opportunity to review applications from a diverse demographic and background that helps us to achieve our business goals. We are open to having conversations about part-time or flexible working for all vacant roles and to receiving applications from returners and transferrers to the industry.
As a ‘staff owned’ organisation we are all committed to demonstrating our enthusiasm and passion for our craft. We love what we do and we strive to provide a great environment and team culture so that our staff can reach their full potential.
“Elliott Wood has set the limits high. It is a creative, sustainable, unique structural company that every employee loves to be a part of!”
“An exciting place to work at an exciting time. All of the team believe in what we stand for and are trying to achieve”
“The investment to develop staff, the in house academy and the encouragement to push boundaries gives staff confidence and inspiration”
“The teams are part of and believe in Elliott Wood’s work and ethos; they genuinely care about what they do”
We engineer for the common good - from making dramatic improvements to the life of a town or a city, through to nurturing a new generation of exceptional technical and creative thinkers. This value goes further than just our engineering. The wide range of charitable activities and events our team takes part in allows them to see the impact they are making.
We directly engage with a host of charities and organisations to give back, from working with RedR, which allow the team to put their skills to use to help in disaster areas across the globe, through to our partnership with Club Peloton, which gives staff, (who are made up of keen cyclists and are offered a cycle to work scheme as part of their package), the opportunity to raise money for Coram children’s charity by putting their skills to the test with cycling and endurance rides such as the London to MIPIM in Cannes ride.
Modern Slavery ACT
The Modern Slavery ACT (2015), has been introduced to give law enforcement the tools to fight modern slavery.
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our business. Our Anti-slavery policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and in implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere within our supply chains.
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk:
We follow a thorough recruitment process and have full control of our work environment;
- Where possible we have long standing relationships with local suppliers and make clear our expectations of them;
- We review all of our suppliers on a twelve monthly basis and require them to complete a supplier questionnaire before we work with them;
- We have systems in place to encourage the reporting of any concerns in confidence.
