Apprenticeships

As members of the Technical Apprenticeship Consortium (TAC), we are committed to the recruitment, training and development of our Apprentices.

Apprentices are valued members of our team who all have the opportunity to learn from industry-leading experts and best-in-class lecturers, whilst also working on high-profile projects from start to completion. We support our Apprentices throughout their learning journey.

Our close-knit network of mentors and line managers work closely with both our dedicated Learning and Development team and external training provider partners to help kick-start careers and shape the future of our industry. Through our Apprenticeship scheme, our Apprentices have an excellent opportunity to become professionally qualified with the relevant professional institution (ICE, CIBSE etc.), whilst also achieving their college or university qualification.

Graduates form an integral part of our team, working on all our high-profile projects across our business. We thrive on the energy and fresh ideas Graduates bring and support their ongoing development as they become established built environment professionals.

Graduates all have the opportunity to join one of our professional training schemes with institutions such as ICE, CIBSE or CIWEM and will receive tailored support as they work towards achieving Chartered status. In addition to a line manager and our Learning and Development team, our graduates also work with a dedicated mentor or supervising civil engineer (ICE) to help them achieve this status.

We offer Graduates great opportunities to develop a rounded skillset. They will have the chance to share their learning via dedicated working groups, take part in school activities and events, and participate in wider community and charity-based initiatives. This allows them to develop their own skills and help grow our talent pipeline, whilst making a lasting impact on the next generation of engineers. Mentoring is central to our learning culture, and our Graduates help support and share their expertise with our new apprentices and those on work experience.

We are delighted to celebrate the achievements of the industry and the ten worthy winners announced today.”

She is a strong role model as an apprentice and I am excited for Georgia’s future as she develops her
engineering career”.
