Arup has been voted the best firm to work for in the UK construction sector, according to a Sunday Times survey.
Arup came 41st in the paper’s list of the best 100 companies to work for. It was followed by fit-out firm Interior Services Group at 43, Gleeson at 53, Kier at 75 and Simons at 77. Housebuilder Westbury was 90th on the list.

None of the companies featured in the inaugural list of the best 50 firms last year, when engineering firm Oscar Faber, was the only construction firm to make the grade.

The Sunday Times’ 100 Best Companies to Work For was published as a supplement to the newspaper. It is the only survey that ranks British companies on the basis of their employees’ views.

Supermarket giant Asda was judged the best company to work for this year.
