About Laing O'Rourke

We are Laing O’Rourke. We design, manufacture, engineer and build iconic buildings and complex infrastructure projects used by millions of people every day. We’re challenging the industry with innovative design and delivery techniques. We’re changing the way we work, using the very latest digital tools and platforms. And we’re always looking to create structures that will help build a better future for everyone.

We are proud to work on some of the most prestigious projects in the UK and around the world from the Crossrail (Europe’s largest infrastructure project) to Hinkley Point C (in Somerset) and the Manchester Airport extension.

Summer Placement

At Laing O’Rourke we have opportunities for undergraduates to complete an 8-16 week placement during the summer of 2018. Our Summer Placement Scheme is the perfect place for people who are passionate about construction to achieve their ambitions. It not only gives you insights into our world-class project based business, but you could soon find you’re on your way to a challenging and rewarding career that’s full of potential. Perform well enough, and you may get a chance to join our Graduate Development Programme.

We understand that flexibility is important to you and therefore we have designed our scheme to fit in with your summer plans. A core six-week programme has been designed and for you to gain the most value from the scheme, we ask that you are available for the duration. You can extend your placement with us before or after these dates to suit both your and the project needs, but we ask that you join us for a minimum of eight weeks to gain the most from your placement.

We are currently looking for exceptional and focused undergraduates that want to specialise in either civil engineering or quantity surveying.
