Job description

Our construction business has been continuously operating in the UK since 1885. Today we are an industry leader and have delivered some of the world’s most exciting and iconic buildings, including the London Olympic Village, Bluewater and Trafford Shopping Centres, Canary Wharf and The Lloyds Building.

We are known for our ability to deliver high-quality projects on time and on budget. And importantly, we are committed to operating incident and injury free wherever we have a presence. Join us and you will work on projects in a variety of sectors, including commercial, residential, retail and urban regeneration in one of three roles:

  • As an Assistant Construction Manager you will have responsibility for the day-to-day management of all activities on site. Your first consideration will be the safety of everyone who may be affected by our operations.
  • As an Assistant Project Manager you will help to plan and deliver the strategy to ensure project success. You will assist in determining the sequence of operations and the procurement strategy that will lead to the most efficient operations on site.
  • As an Assistant Commercial Manager you will have responsibility for aspects of the contracts under which we operate. You will assist in controlling the payments we make to our contractors and the submissions for payments that we receive from our clients.

Over the two years of the graduate programme you will not only develop a wide range of skills and experience across all stages of the construction process, you will also establish a network of colleagues that will stay with you as your career progresses.

Construction is a team game and nothing beats the spirit created by working with a group of professional and highly motivated peers to deliver an outstanding outcome. Our teams are united by a shared vision of creating the best places and leaving a positive legacy.

With responsibility comes reward. You will join us on a competitive salary of £29,221 including a car allowance, sponsorship to achieve professional qualifications and chartered status, private medical insurance, an industry-leading pension and a flexible benefits scheme that allows you to shape your own package.
