Careers At Withers DA

We are proud of our expertise and reputation with our clients. We have a wide range of Civil Engineering projects on our portfolio and can offer Infrastructure Design Engineers a challenging career: not only in developing Technical Expertise but also Commercial Awareness and Client Relationship Building. All our Design Engineers work directly with our clients and other consultancies to deliver schemes and are fully involved in decisions about the design throughout. We believe this is a more empowering motivating way to work.

We are only too aware that Our drawings are our product and what our clients judge us by. We are obsessed with the quality of what we produce, and encourage all the team to take pride in their product.

We would like to think that we are one of the best consultancies to work for; we work together as a close team and aim to work in partnership with our clients and other specialist Consultancies on Projects. Whilst we specialise in the Design of Residential Road and Drainage, Withers Design emerged from a Multi-Discipline consultancy and we have a thorough understanding of the links between our work and that of the other design disciplines.

We have high expectations, but always recognise effort and success when merited. We provide coaching and mentoring support when needed and encourage our team to pursue Continual Professional Development. That coupled with the way we share our varied project portfolio make us a good place for ambitious Designer Engineers keen to grow their skills.
