Successful candidates will join one of the North West's most successful construction firms, participating in a well-established five year Building Student Programme in partnership with the University of Salford.
  • The Building Student Programme is structured to ensure that each candidate gains a breadth of industry base experience during the first two years of employment by joining the main departments of the business.
  • This rotation will see each candidate working alongside our Estimating, Quantity Surveying, Construction, Engineering and Design Management departments.
  • At the beginning of the third year, the candidate will join the Quantity Surveying or Estimating Department on a full time basis to concentrate on their chosen career path.
  • Building Students will undertake a day release apprenticeship degree at the University of Salford. The Building Student Programme at Russells has been developed in conjunction with the University and is therefore closely aligned with the degree course syllabus.
  • Our partnership with the University of Salford is integral to the business, our staff regularly undertake guest lectures and students at the University visit our sites as a means of supplementing the Quantity Surveying and wider construction degree courses.
  • On commencement of the Building Student Programme each candidate will be allocated an established member of staff to act as a mentor to provide guidance and support throughout the programme.
