Laing O’Rourke offers undergraduate placements to those students studying an undergraduate degree with a sandwich year or those who prefer to do a summer placement between each academic year.
Our summer placement scheme offers undergraduates a 6-12 week placement for those who are passionate about achieving their career ambitions in the built environment. Perform well enough and you may get the chance to join our Graduate Development Programme.
Your summer placement will give you an insight into our world-class project-based business. You will get hands-on experience of working on one of our construction sites, along with structured training, group activities, guidance and support which will aid you with your university education.
We understand that flexibility is important to you and therefore we’ve designed the programme to fit with your summer plans. A core six-week programme has been designed for you to get the most value from the Summer and Industrial Placement and we ask that you are available for the duration to complete your six learning sessions. These sessions will complement your practical experience on site.
We ask you to complete a minimum of six weeks to get the most out of placement, so you can extend your placement with us before or after the core six-week programme to suit both you and your project’s needs.
Students who complete a successful Summer/Industrial placement will be automatically put forward for our Graduate Development Programme. This means you will not need to apply nor go through the assessment centre process.
