At Laing O’Rourke we have opportunities for Undergraduates to complete an 6-12 week placement during the summer of 2020. 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.
Our aim is to provide you with valuable hands on experience and to develop skills to aid you with your university education. You will be given the guidance and support you need to ensure you make the most of your placement, with structured training and group activities to compliment the practical abilities you’ll gain within your chosen function. We want you to make a valid contribution to the business, so in order that you develop quickly, you will be given real responsibility as early as possible.
We understand that flexibility is important to you and therefore we have designed our scheme to fit in with your summer plans. A core 6-week programme (July – August 2020) has been designed, in order 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 yourself and the project needs, but we ask that you join us for a minimum of 6 weeks to gain the most from your placement.
