What you will do in your working day

Our apprenticeships are designed to give you an insight into a wide variety of areas of work and the chance to explore where your skills and interests lie. Through a combination of on-the-job learning and practical skills development, you'll work on real projects from day one that offer scale and variety, collaborating with others and creating meaningful impact on the world around us. You'll work towards your professional qualification; whichever path you take, your future starts here.

You'll also be supported by our leaders, technical specialists, your own dedicated mentor and our continuous learning and development framework.

Not only will you gain valuable 'on the job' experience and work towards professional qualifications but you'll also earn a meaningful salary from day one. We're proud to be paying Real Living Wage for our Level 6 Apprenticeships.

You'll be making a sustainable difference in people's lives, shaping cities, reimagining transport and transforming nuclear energy. And with the opportunity to work across Cities & Development, Nuclear & Power, Transportation, Water or Environment, you'll decide where you want your career to go.

Here's what your role as an apprentice will involve:
  • Developing your skills in a wide range of exciting projects
  • Learning and using relevant design software
  • Being involved in client meetings and assisting in building key client relationships
  • You'll get to understand and learn digital skills, to help us harness technology in new ways
  • Your mentors will support you as you study towards nationally recognised qualifications and accreditation
  • You'll have dedicated time to spend at college or university to focus on your studies

The training you will be getting
  • The Civil Engineering Apprenticeship includes a degree qualification in Civil Engineering BEng (Hons) and a qualification leading towards Chartered Civil Engineer status
  • Civil engineers provide technical and management input to develop design solutions for complex civil engineering problems. They work as part of a team of engineers and other construction professionals through the development, design, construction, commissioning, operation, and maintenance, of civil engineering infrastructure
  • The apprenticeship provides a broad skills base, making our graduates eligible for work in areas including sustainable construction, structural integrity, geotechnics (engineering behaviour of earth materials), materials, tunnelling, marine and coastal engineering, water, waste management, flood management, transportation and power

What to expect at the end of your apprenticeship
  • Civil engineers deliver a vital service in ensuring the safe, well-resourced construction of a huge range of projects in the built and natural environment, from transport networks to Olympic stadia
  • The careers opportunities available to graduates of civil engineering are very diverse: water engineer involved in dams and sea defences; highways engineer involved in designing and building road networks; structural engineers for either, amongst others, built environment or bridges; and many more
  • Diversification into management, engineering research or professions that value a numerical degree such as accountancy or banking are also possible. Wherever an economy is strong there is an increase in demand for professionally qualified civil engineers, so overseas travel is possible
  • By studying the apprenticeship route, you gain real world work experience from the start of your course combined with a better understanding and analysis of your daily tasks, building skills and contacts, giving you an edge on graduation
  • The Civil Engineering Apprenticeship includes a degree qualification in Civil Engineering BEng (Hons) and a qualification leading towards Chartered Civil Engineer status
