Exciting career opportunities working on electrical infrastructure projects

Life at WSP has a wide variety of fascinating, absorbing work where employees enjoy the professional and personal rewards that come from solving truly complex issues, and have the opportunity to visit some of the most beautiful parts of the UK. For example, WSP's Cultural Heritage and Archaeology, Ecology and Hydrogeology teams have worked together in Scotland on surveys for electrical infrastructure and connections.

WSP UK Assistant Archaeology Consultant, Elise Christensen, is helping to create modern infrastructure that works with the natural and historic environment. "One of the perks of working for a global company is getting to try the coffee in different offices around the world! While on some pre-holiday time in my hometown I was able to do some remote work in WSP's Salt Lake City office and meet with colleagues from WSP USA. The views were stunning, but I think Edinburgh wins in the coffee department!," comments Elise.

Working alongside Elise in Scotland are further talented women like Hayley Smith, a WSP Graduate Ecologist, who started as a WSP Seasonal Ecologist in early 2022. Also, WSP Graduate Hydrogeologist, Katy Irving, who graduated with a First Class honours in Geology (BSc) from the University of Glasgow and received a Master's Degree in Hydrogeology (MSc) with Distinction from the University of Strathclyde in 2022, enjoys a thriving career focusing on sustainability.
