The Concept

Bouygues Travaux Publics, an affiliate of Bouygues Construction, is looking for a recent graduate to join their specialist civil engineering team on an exciting development programme.

You will be working in the civil works sector for two years, either in France or in other countries, on a varied range of operations (bridges, road & rail structures, civil engineering, underground networks, dams and ports) all with a high degree of technical complexity.

At the end of the two years you will join Bouygues Construction`s headquarters at Challenger, France to learn about our expertise with French language courses.

Building the Future

One of London’s largest excavations has now been completed. With five storeys below ground and a depth of 28.5 metres, it is big enough to contain the Royal Albert Hall.

Your Main Duties

As part of the Technical Studies department, you carry out engineering studies for Civil Works projects.
Depending on your profile, your main duties will include:

  • Produce the preliminary drawings for the structure
  • Adapt or modify the preliminary dimensions of the structure according to the type of soil
  • Carry out the structural calculations and propose solutions allowing technical optimisation and structural variants
  • Direct the work of external design offices
  • Reduce and analyse risks relating to the project
  • Supervision of the compliance of operations with standards imposed by QSE rules

You work in collaboration with the Sales and Construction teams and are involved in two key stages of the project:

  • for the preliminary design, to define the main principles of the structure or building and to provide the Sales teams with all the elements needed to estimate the cost and produce an effective and innovative offer,
  • for the working design, to define the structure of building in every detail and provide the drawings required for execution of the works by the Construction teams.

Your profile

You must hold a relevant degree or MSc qualification with at least a 2.1 grade or above. You have an excellent knowledge of construction techniques and of IT. You have a reputation for meticulousness and attention to detail. Combined with your enjoyment of teamwork and your organisational abilities, these qualities will mean that you are seen as the recognised "go-to person" internally.

Your Career Path

You will spend two years on one of our major complex projects, then two years in Bouygues Construction`s headquarter at Challenger to learn about our expertise.

During your Graduate Programme, Bouygues Travaux Publics will give you the opportunity and mechanisms to build a successful career by offering -

  • A competitive salary plus package
  • French language courses
  • Exposure to different areas to develop your knowledge of the group
  • A mentor to support your development
  • Trainings to develop and improve your knowledge and technical capabilities.
