Our apprenticeship opportunities will take you over a five-year journey and transform you from 'newbie' (or career changer?) into a qualified, experienced, construction professional, ready and able to take on responsibility. You will begin learning on the job straight away, becoming part of a supportive and integrated team on a major construction project. At the same time, you will attend London South Bank University on a day release basis to learn the theoretical and professional practice aspects of your role. At the end of your apprenticeship journey, you will be a construction graduate, with a professional membership - but without the debt! You will also have five years solid experience under your belt. If all this weren't enough, we offer a competitive 'earn while you learn' salary, all the usual benefits you would expect from a modern company, and your own personal development plan and mentor. Sound good?

Rather than 'pigeon hole' you into a set role straight away, Durkan are keen to learn a bit more about you, and then move you into the apprenticeship that best matches your individual skills and talents. However, if you are particularly keen on one or other of the roles, let us know why you think this would be a better outcome for us and you.
