Careers with us

People are our greatest asset, and as an ambitious and growing business, we regularly have vacancies across the business.  You can apply for specific vacancies advertised here.

We have been operating an Apprenticeship Programme since 1999, with many of our Site Managers, Construction Managers, Business Operations and Senior Leadership team having trained through the scheme. An apprenticeship with us provides you with a thorough foundation for an exciting and fulfilling career in the Construction industry.

As part of our ambitions to be a first-choice employer for the best students, we work collaboratively with schools and the Construction Industry Training Board, CITB, and in cooperation with various specialist training providers, colleges and universities, including: First Intuition, Professional Apprenticeships, Didac, Weston College, City of Bristol College, University of South Wales and UWE Bristol.

Construction offers a huge variety of roles whether on-site, in management or head office professions. To find out which might suit you best, we recommend that you seek professional guidance from a qualified careers adviser. There are also some fantastic resources to help you on the CITB-funded Go Construct website.
