Sweco Graduate Scheme FAQs

What do you look for in an application?

Applications that demonstrate a clear interest in Sweco and the work we do. If you have done your research it will show. We’re also looking for colleagues who can learn, adapt and who are curious about doing things better.

Am I allowed to apply for more than one role at a time?

We want you to select the role you are most interested in, so we limit candidate applications to one application only. You should therefore take your time to provide as much information as possible when completing your online application.

What are your minimum academic requirements?

To be eligible for the graduate development programme you must currently be studying for an honours degree, ideally in a STEM subject, and be on track for a 2:1 or higher.

I have some industry experience…can I still apply for your Graduate Scheme?

Our Graduate Scheme is aimed at candidates with less than two years’ relevant industry experience, if you have more than two year’s relevant experience this opportunity is unlikely to offer you progression.

If you have two or more years’ relevant experience, opportunities at Assistant Engineer or Assistant Consultant level may be more appropriate for you – take a look at our latest vacancies to see if we have opportunities in these roles.

Can I make any changes once I have submitted my application?

No, unfortunately, you will not be able to make any changes to your application once this has been submitted, remember to check your application carefully before submitting.

My application was rejected at the first stage, can I get feedback?
