Right now we're looking for Building Structures Degree Apprentices to join our team in London. From your first day, you'll join a community of experts, where everyone is supported in their career path and encouraged to work towards an accredited qualification.

You could also get involved in the computer modelling and drawing of external parts of buildings, such as car parks and access roads. You will also have the advantage of Building Information Modelling (BIM) technology, which enables us to design buildings collaboratively using computer models.
