Graduate Structural Engineer 

Castree are an established firm of consulting structural engineers working across a range of sectors for projects throughout the UK and Worldwide.

We are a small, growing practice, specialising in exciting niche areas within Structural Engineering.

The successful candidate will be involved in projects from all sectors, from conception to construction. Projects will vary from smaller domestics works to large multi-storey steelwork frames and amusement and public attraction installations.
