We’re one of the UK’s leading names in Regional Build, Highways, Utilities and Infrastructure- inspiring innovations in 21 market sectors- and wherever you join us, you’ll be able to achieve and collaborate with one of the country’s most established forward thinkers in construction, property, residential and services.

At Kier, we are guided by three core values: collaborative, forward thinking and enthusiastic. These values are what we expect each of our team members to represent. So, whether you’re with us for 8 weeks on a summer placement programme or a year on an industrial placement, you’ll be equally passionate about demonstrating these values to your colleagues, clients and stakeholders.

With 67 UK offices and 1000s of live projects, you could find yourself working from any number of exciting and interesting locations across the country. We will connect you with other placement students in the local area to help you create your own network of colleagues and friends.

Our placement programmes are an opportunity for you to become part of Kier’s future graduate programme. You’ll be learning valuable experience, building a network of industry contacts and looking after some of the UK’s most innovative projects. The placement programmes are an opportunity for us to get to know you, and for you to get to know a bit more about our teams and how we work. Once your placement is over, we could offer you another role within the business for when you graduate, a fast-track way to your dream career.
