Part-time employment will also be considered.
Your profileWe welcome highly motivated and curious applicants in disciplines related to civil and environmental engineering, architecture, construction, communication, computer science, computational design, arts, or similar subjects and with a strong interest in applying circular economy principles to the AEC sector. Fluency in spoken and written English is a requirement. The ideal candidate should have outstanding writing and communication skills and be able to work in a team, take initiative, be results-oriented, organised, and creative.
