What Employers Say
Originating in Bristol, Clarkebond from its beginnings in 1946 as a simple structural engineering firm, is now an open, responsible, professional and entrepreneurial business providing a full range of engineering services. Our role as engineers is crucial to any scheme, from advising on site selection and influencing design, providing pre-planning services, through to ground engineering, infrastructure and transport planning and utilities, together with the evaluation and design of appropriate foundation and superstructure engineering design solutions.
Whilst working nationally, much of our core business still originates from The West and South West Peninsula. Our commitment, history and reputation are part of the engineering fabric of these regions and the West of England remains a good location for our business. Within a 2 hour radius of Bristol, we can easily access a significant part of the UK and a wealth of opportunities to source projects in our many disciplines of civil and structural engineering.
Our work is challenging, rewarding and varied. Whatever the project; the award winning RILD building in Exeter; a sustainable award winning B&Q store in South Wales; one of our many residential developments throughout the region; a hospital, school, leisure complex, or office building, we need exceptional skills from exceptional people.
The leisure, life-style, resources and ease of travel in the West of England attracts quality, talented people who want an alternative to living and working in the large conurbations of the South East, the Midlands and the North. With easy access to the coast, moors, open country plus the resources, entertainment and culture of the city, the West of England is the ideal place to develop a great work-life balance; one of Clarkebond’s core values. This work- life balance, along with the stable economy and education facilities, provide excellent opportunity for personal development and career advancement. This ensures existing talent is not lost and others aspire to relocate here.
In our fields of engineering we need people with different skill levels including; management, chartered engineers, incorporated engineers, technicians, graduates and apprentices. All are required for the functioning of our business and there is a clear demand for a highly skilled resource pool necessary for our sustainable business growth.
Clarkebond recruits at all levels and from a variety of sources. We have apprentices employed within our organisation that undertake day release at local colleges. We seek apprentices that really want to develop skills and progress within in our industry. They bring a new dynamic to the office environment and we have found them to be a sponge - absorbing knowledge and wanting to succeed. That can have a tendency to rub off on others.
We have offices in Exeter, London and Bristol, but Bristol is, and always has been our largest facility by far, and we hope that the outstanding talent in the West of England will keep it that way.
