Work placements and experience

Each of our six operating companies offers specific placement opportunities including summer and year long placements and work experience.


Our summer placement programme provides students with the opportunity to build on their technical knowledge within a site environment. During the placement, students are given a project that they own while you are with us, providing exposure of managing a project through to completion. Throughout the placement, we ensure students receive regular feedback and, depending on outcome, offer students the opportunity to join us; once they have completed their university  studies..

Our year long placement programmes, for university students, capture specific training objectives, focused on continuous learning on the job, to complement learning whilst at university.  The placements focus on technical skills and the progression towards increasing responsibility, with exposure to management and commercial aspects; depending on individual development. Those who have progressed well through will be considered for employment post-graduation, onto our graduate programme.
