Do you want to be a part building the environments in which we live, using the latest technology and building methods? VINCI Construction UK are committed to creating a working environment that is inclusive and diverse.

Successful candidates will be based on our live construction sites and at regional offices. You will work with the site management team to ensure the projects are completed safely, on time, on budget and to the correct specifications.

You will spend time in our different departments learning how we procure work, design, plan, and construct buildings for our clients. Once you have completed the departmental rotations you will chose your preferred career pathway and work towards technical and professional qualifications.

We have opportunities to work within our Building Division in our Regions in the North West (covering Manchester, Merseyside, Cheshire, Lancashire, Tameside) and Midlands (covering Birmingham, Worcestershire & East Midlands).

Candidates must have a flexible approach and be willing to work on projects throughout the Region (Note allowances are payable where applicable to make this affordable to the candidates).

As well as learning on the job, you will be required to attend Stephenson College on a block release basis (4 week blocks at college). The three year course will provide you with a Level 3 BTEC Subsidiary Diploma, Level 4 HNC and NVQ Level 4. In addition to the qualifications the programme will enable candidates to progress in terms of level of responsibility, interpersonal skills, leadership, commercial awareness and technical engineering knowledge.

This pathway offers an interesting and progressive career in Construction & Civil Engineering which can ultimately lead to full membership of the relevant professional bodies.

This opportunity could be a development opportunity as an attractive alternative to a traditional university career path.
