A rewarding career

At Roughan & O'Donovan, we're tackling the bigger challenges facing infrastructure owners today.

We're not just looking at routes; we're looking at networks.  

We're not just looking at roads; we're looking at how all transport modes interact.  

We're finding answers to the tough questions, such as how to measure the risk posed to infrastructure by extreme weather events.

We offer you a rewarding career working alongside a team with a reputation for doing the hard things well.

  • We will develop your technical and leadership skills through challenging projects and world-class training.
