Things to consider

Although the local office will be in Southwark it will be common to work on sites in and outside of London as well as travel to other offices for example in Cheshunt.

The construction industry is fast-paced and very dependent on its environment and client needs which may lead to non-standard working hours at times.

Apprentices are paid for their normal working hours and training that's part of their apprenticeship (usually one day per week).
