Springboard is a team of talented engineers and scientists that are driven by a passion for solving difficult technical challenges and developing successful products that help people around the world.

Springboard is a technical consultancy that develops technologies for multinational companies in a diverse range of markets including medical, fluidics and advanced consumer products. Springboard values diversity because it helps us to deliver better solutions to our clients. A key diversity issue is that women are under-represented in STEM careers and so we are working on ways to improve the balance, including our Women in Technical Consultancy Scheme. We are very excited to be sponsoring CUWES this year!

Arcadis’ story began back in 1888 in the Netherlands, where we developed unusable land into places for people to live and establish communities. Nowadays, we focus on creating better housing, revolutionising transport systems and finding new solutions to complex environmental challenges.

The future of Arcadis is being shaped by the mindset of its people.

At Newton, we do consulting differently.

We believe even the best organisations can be better. We go in side-by-side with our clients, observing production lines, listening to shop floor workers, gathering hard evidence and data. We work as a team to devise operational solutions which are clear to understand, easy to implement, and genuinely meaningful. We don’t leave until we get the results our clients seek. We believe so strongly in our ability to create a lasting impact that we guarantee our fees against it.
