The Company

Our people are key to our success. They are experts on understanding the specific requirements of diverse industries and project types. This depth of talent and experience across our international footprint allows NDY to undertake the most challenging projects, and to deliver successful commercial, environmental and technical outcomes.

We foster collaborative and long-term relationships with clients, and recognise that the foundation of these relationships is trust. We earn this client trust by being reliable, responsive and commercially astute with our advice.

Our successful approach is based on listening to our clients and understanding their business. We look to embrace client requirements by understanding how our advice and designs will provide best value to their projects.

Whilst our technical, documentation and consulting abilities are first class, we embrace our role as an innovator, and not a follower, of trends. We fund research and development activities in all key NDY services and support our people on the journey of continual professional development.

Our people embody the highest standards of professional and ethical conduct and look to implement best practice solutions in sustainable design, for the long-term resilience of projects.

Talented individuals look to join the NDY group because they want to be a part of a highly regarded brand, and because they want to work with the best clients on meaningful projects across international locations.

The prospect of working alongside industry thought leaders, our technical excellence, and our industry-leading approach to corporate social responsibility, makes NDY a beacon for top tier talent.

About the Position

​​​​​​​The challenges we face today in our society are ever changing, for which the consequences are far reaching and complex. The World Economic Forum highlights the interconnected nature of global risks today, the majority of which have environmental and social implications for our Clients, their stakeholders and their people.

Our Global Sustainability Group (GSG) is a strategic collective in NDY that works directly with organisations, affiliate groups and individuals to help them understand and respond to these challenges; and manage their risk. We are a specialist advisory group that acts exclusively or as part of an integrated NDY service and this elevates our offering above others. We operate at all levels within organisations, from advising on macro environmental and social issues to executives, through to masterplanning towns and cities and delivering world class engineering sustainable design solutions. We provide substance to our advisory work.
