We offer a unique learning ground for graduates to help us bring our projects to life. Based at Devonport, Plymouth, we offer a 12-week Quantity Surveying summer placement. You will be ready to take on challenges and be given the chance to experience our dynamic commercial business unit.

There will be plenty of opportunity to visit our other sites and meet placement students from across the Devonport site. During your time with us, you will meet a range of people, from graduates to directors, who will share their experiences and expand your industry knowledge. If you have a successful summer with us, you will be fast-tracked through the graduate assessment process.
