Riley is a great place for graduates. 

We’re passionate about giving you every opportunity to grow as an engineering consultant.

We'll provide you with a variety of project opportunities, working alongside and being supported by a diverse range of people on the job. Equally, your voice will be heard – we value the perspective you bring.


Each graduate’s journey is unique and we like to tap into your strengths and interest areas. We provide you with a platform to shape your own development and direction but with a dedicated  programme in place for support and guidance.

You'll work on a range of projects of various sizes and complexities that involve different solutions and disciplines. 


We believe in giving our graduates responsibility early on so you'll have the opportunity to get involved in all aspects of a project.

Our graduate positions involve:

  • providing technical input to projects, e.g. investigation, analysis, design, construction supervision

  • helping senior staff prepare reports and proposals, manage projects and communicate with clients and stakeholders.


We also encourage our graduates to get involved with business initiatives and management tasks to draw on their unique perspectives. This will help develop your understanding of how a consultancy works.
