Why WSP – fast facts


Here are some great reasons why working for WSP Environment & Energy is fulfilling and something to be proud about:


  • Great clients and great projects – the rest of this website can describe this, but let’s just say: Masdar; Microsoft and Marks & Spencer.


  • International work – we’re a big global business, so there are always opportunities to work with clients around the world, travel to international sites or even transfer overseas to help establish a new market or grow one of our teams.


  • A chance to develop lasting relationships – time spent developing client relationships is time we value. You will be encouraged to network and really get to understand our clients.


  • Shape your career – people from across our business have enjoyed opportunities to develop new service ideas, lead the opening of a new office, build their commercial business skills and become recognised industry commentators.


  • We take your health and safety seriously – our strong HS&E culture is heavy on hearts and minds and light on bureaucracy. We have global policy, regional practices and clear reporting lines.


  • Success is celebrated – strong global and regional internal communications keep everyone informed. And if we win team or individual industry accolades we make sure everyone knows!


  • Strong values – we place huge importance on our Group Values. Trust; Sharing & Supporting; Pride & Passion; Innovation; and Sustainability – as you might expect from an organisation focused on climate change impacts, we are very supportive of the sustainability principles of our people.


  • We listen to you – all our staff can contribute their views on life at WSP in the annual staff survey. And across the world our senior directors are very visible in their regions, and regularly plug offices together for regional and even global conference calls and briefings.


  • And, critically, we have fun – across our global office network we have people competing together in sporting events, donning fancy dress, baking cakes, supporting local charities, communicating on social networking sites, and quite simply having a coffee or a beer.
