Working For Us


JBA operates in the fields of civil and structural engineering, environment, water and landscape consultancy, emergency management, business continuity management and information technology.  We offer a unique blend of local knowledge, innovation and technical excellence, creating a better world in which to work and live.

As an employer, we can promise you challenges, opportunities, diversity and above all, intense job satisfaction.  In return, we ask you for commitment and flair, confidence in your own abilities and a willingness to learn.  If you think you are the right kind of person for JBA - academically excellent and/or able to demonstrate enthusiasm, drive and initiative, then get in touch.

We enroll all our new or recent graduates on our internal Graduate Development Scheme.  This is a bespoke two-year in-house learning programme aimed at providing a comprehensive foundation for your future career with us. It gives you the opportunity to learn about different facets of our business, to work with a wide range of staff and, where appropriate, to try different disciplines first hand.  The Graduate Scheme is aligned to our wider Learning and Professional Development Framework so you’ll see a seamless transition with the industry respected training and learning support we provide across all staff grades

Note to Agencies

JBA prefers to recruit candidates directly, rather than through a third party recruiter or agency. JBA will only pay a fee for candidates submitted or presented where there is a signed recruiting agreement in place between JBA and the recruiter or agency prior to the submittal, and the candidate is submitted for a specific requisition. In the case of candidate(s) submitted or presented to JBA by a recruiter or agency without a signed agreement, JBA explicitly reserves the right to pursue and hire those candidate(s) without any financial obligation to the recruiter or agency.
