‘I find it inspiring to be working alongside some of the best structural designers in the industry’ – Darragh, Engineer at Walsh

Walsh can put its success down to one thing – it’s people. We take great pride in hiring the best structural and civil engineers and nurturing the next generation of award winning experts. Every person who works at Walsh not only has a natural passion for design and analysis, but is also comprehensively trained by us so they are equipped to handle the diverse and exciting challenges our projects present. You’ll notice something reassuring on every team at Walsh – that the opinions of each individual are valued. That’s because we welcome clear, innovative thinkers who can work in a wholly collaborative way.

All of our directors are hands-on and continue to work alongside engineers of all levels of experience. It is this open and approachable nature that is part of the fabric of Walsh and has helped us get the balance of development, trust and openness just right. This is proven by the fact we have a loyal, thriving workforce and that the majority of the company’s directors have stayed with Walsh since they were trainees. We will always continue to recognise hard work and seek to promote talent from within the company wherever possible.
