These are just some of the words that our team have used to describe what life is like at Civic Engineers. We work hard to ensure that our team enjoy their work and feel valued. We believe in giving individuals responsibility and allowing them the freedom to really do their job, grow in their role and constantly learn. No-one is out on their own though, help, support and professional development is available for everyone. We want our team to constantly develop new skills, gain professional qualifications and be the best they can be in their field.

We genuinely enjoy spending time together as a team both in and out of work. Our offices are friendly and there are plenty of opportunities to socialise. As part of the working day we have initiatives such as ‘lunch and learn’, where members of the team share their expertise in particular areas to the benefit of the whole team.
