Your career at Northrop

Great opportunities for the taking.

At Northrop we put our people first. If you are looking to take your career to the next level and develop to your full potential, then Northrop is the place for you. Here's why...

Northrop Consulting Engineers is more than just a workplace...

We’re inclusive. We’re diverse. We want everyone who joins us to fulfil their potential, and we help, coax and sometimes push each other to achieve exactly that. 
 
We’ve got each other’s backs, and everyone is comfortable and happy being themselves. Northrop is a home for high performers, but there’s no pretense and little politics. We engage with each other and do great work together. 
 
The business is owned by our senior people, who work among us and set the tone for our open and nurturing culture. 
 
Being employee owned means we decide what is important, which markets to work in, who to work with, what opportunities to harness, and which risks to take.
 
It’s all on us. When we succeed, we benefit – not some investor sitting on a beach. We’ve got skin in the game and we care deeply.

Realising your potential

When you join Northrop, you’ll be given great opportunities, and very quickly you’ll be in front of clients and running projects of your own. 
 
You’ll be given the responsibility and freedom to make decisions – and making decisions and getting on with the job is easy here, because we don’t have layers of red tape. 
 
Of course while you’ll have responsibility, you’ll also have the guidance and support of talented colleagues and the senior team whenever you need it. 
 
At Northrop, we want you to take your career wherever you want it to go, and for us that means seizing every day – and every opportunity – with enthusiasm and passion. 
 
And, being an employee-owned company means there’s a clear path to the boardroom and company ownership here.
