Civil Engineering - Undergraduate Summer Placement 2017

About the role

Within Balfour Beatty we have opportunities for Civil Engineering Undergraduates to complete an 8-12 week placement in summer 2017. Our Civil Engineering undergraduate roles tend to be site based; however, occasionally we have office based placements available depending on the project requirements. We have positions up and down the UK.

Our aim is to provide you with an insight into our business, whilst gaining valuable experience of civil engineering to support your studies. You will be given the guidance and support you need to ensure you make the most of your time with us as we want you to make a valid contribution to our business throughout your placement. So in order that you develop quickly, you will be given a real taster of the role including site and office based experience responsibility as early as possible.
