Work for us

Our ethos

At Lithos we recognise that our most valuable assets are our staff.  We  offer a competitive salary with additional benefits, including flexible working, generous pension scheme and a bonus payable twice a year.  Development, coaching, mentoring and personal growth underpin everything we do.  We offer a formal, progressive training programme from Graduate Engineer to Associate Director, guaranteeing a route to Chartership on the way. You can find our company Vision, Mission and Values here along side our Illustrative Training Programme.

Our rural location just off the Al, means we are an easy commute with free parking, where you can also experience the benefits the countryside can offer. Most of our work is based in Yorkshire or the North of England and so our engineers do not have to spend long periods of time working away from home – our work involves a healthy split between office and site work.

As an SME we can be responsive, flexible and take an individual approach towards our employees.  You will not be lost in the crowd but you will be accountable. You will work with and learn from experienced technical experts on projects from beginning to end, but you will also have the opportunity to develop broader business skills; skills that are essential in running a successful and profitable business like Lithos.

The nature of our work, our strong culture and ethos means teamwork, collaboration, communication, mentoring and personal development are fundamental. We’re sociable and supportive and believe this is best achieved by working together.  If you prefer to work from home, remotely, then Lithos may not be for you.

Despite being a relatively small business, we invest a lot of time and money in your future development; in return we want you to stick around for at least 2 years.  If you see Lithos as a stepping stone or a temporary commitment, then again, Lithos is not for you.

During our recruitment process we take your privacy seriously. We will not pass your details on to any other party or retain your information any longer than we need to progress your application, or to fulfil our legal and regulatory requirements. Further details of our GDPR and privacy policy can be found on this website.

We are a Mindful Employer and this means we’re committed to empowering our employees to achieve better mental health at work.

Careers for graduates

Each year we recruit at least one Graduate with a relevant degree.  We commit to providing all our graduates with a ‘route to chartership’.  This means we provide the training, experience, support and guidance so that our graduates achieve Chartership status with their chosen technical body (typically Geology Society) within approx 5-6 years.  Beyond this, our Chartered Engineers are encouraged and supported in developing a higher technical specialism eg: SiLC, RoGEP.

Those who show leadership potential are invited on to our Associate Director Development Programme, which leads to a level 7 Certificate in Leadership and Management.

Undergraduate placements

We normally offer a one year industrial placement to an undergraduate studying a relevant degree, for example geology or environmental sciences. Temporary experience with Lithos will give you an advantage if you apply for a permanent role.

Testimonials from some of our previous undergraduates can be found here.
