This is an opportunity to work on iconic Infrastructure, Real Estate and Natural Resources projects, which shape the environment and society we live in. We have worked on The Shard, Battersea Power Station, and Heathrow Airport Expansion.

We offer the chance to work with different teams, rotational placements, opportunities to shadow, take part in activities, meet senior people within our organisation to gain career insights, career development workshops, CV writing, a mini project and presentation.

Before applying please note:

  • We would particularly encourage applications from individuals who have not previously had work experience, nor have access to similar opportunities elsewhere (such as via parents).
  • Diversity and Inclusion is important to us, and as such we would welcome applications from groups that are statistically under-represented in our industry such as young females and BAME candidates who have an interest in STEM subjects or construction.
  • We hire people who see solutions where others see challenges, have genuine enthusiasm for how the world works, and a love for learning on the job.
  • You will be based at our office near St Paul’s at 9:30 – 16:00 Monday to Friday, with the possibility of some offsite travel to client sites (a weekly travel card will be provided)
  • Final deadline for applications is Friday, 8th June
