Our Infrastructure business – which covers road, rail, energy and airports – is highly committed to attracting, developing and retaining the graduates of today to ensure both your, and our, future successes. We have an industry renowned Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) approved Training Scheme, which, even through the recession, we have not just maintained but also expanded as we recognise, in an ever-changing and increasingly fast paced industry, the importance of the next generation.
We have strong links with academic institutions across our operating region including (but not limited to):
- Imperial College London
- University of Birmingham
- University of Southamption
- University of Surrey
- University of Portsmouth
- Plymouth University
What the scheme involves
You will be provided with a structured training programme which will ensure you have exposure to different areas of the Infrastructure Business to enable you to quickly gain all the skills you need as a Professional Engineer. Many people ask “How long is the training programme?” – for us there isn’t a definitive answer; it’s not a race, and it varies for each person. But what we can promise is you will be given every opportunity possible and all the support you need to pass your Professional Review as soon as you are ready.
We currently have 14 Graduates working toward professional membership with the Institution of Civil Engineers, and a further 9 sponsored and Industry Placement year undergraduates. These are supported by a team of 9 professional Civil Engineers. Each Graduate registered onto the Training Scheme will be allocated a professionally qualified Delegated Engineer, whilst undergraduates are allocated an experienced Graduate, so as to give our Graduates an early opportunity to learn about coaching and mentoring people ready to become Delegated Engineers themselves upon passing their own Professional Reviews.
If you are interested in joining our Infrastructure training programme, please email your CV and a covering letter to Malcolm Attrill at: firstname.lastname@example.org
