Job description

Undergraduates will complete a one year Industrial Placement within our business commencing in summer/autumn 2018. Our Civil Engineering undergraduate roles will tend to be site based; however, occasionally we have office based placements available depending on project requirements.

Our aim is to provide you with an insight into our business, whilst gaining valuable experience of civil engineering to support your studies. You will be given guidance and support you need to ensure you make the most of your time with us as we want you to make a valid contribution to the business throughout your placement. So in order that you develop quickly, you will be given a real taster of the role including site and office based experience as early as possible.

What you'll be doing
Reporting to a senior engineer, your responsibilities may include:

  • Managing and carrying out setting out activities
  • Liaison with and supervision of other site staff and operatives, always ensuring work is carried out in a safe manner
  • Preparing method statements and risk assessments
  • Control and determine quantities of materials against project plans
  • Carry out short term planning
  • Keeping site records and quality documents (cost, time and safety)

Your time with us will help you gain valuable experience should you aspire to specialise in Civil Engineering.

We offer a competitive salary dependent on your year of study and any other previous experience. You may also be invited to return for further work placements and ultimately a place on the Balfour Beatty Graduate Scheme, subject to further assessments.
