Think beyond the hard hat, beyond stereotypes, beyond ground-breaking and look forward to a future full of unlimited opportunity, infinite possibilities and far-reaching impact.

We’re known for offering careers in construction and engineering, but we go beyond this. We use the latest technology to make big impact through industry-leading changes that ensure we leave a legacy that will inspire generations to come.

We go #beyondthebuild to ensure real value in everything we do - from creating national infrastructure to structures and services at the heart of everyday life. We always ensure our work has a positive impact on the environment and the communities we work in.

You could be part of all of this too, as we offer apprenticeships across the UK in a wide range of exciting subjects. All our roles – from construction and engineering to communications and human resources – offer a chance to explore innovative technologies, inspire others and build your future.

Our apprenticeships include:

  • Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering
  • Quantity Surveying
  • Highways Maintenance
  • Construction Management
  • Cable Jointer
  • Business Support and Administration
  • IT and Software
  • Communications
  • Finance

Earning while you learn, you’ll get lots of development opportunities, mentoring and support from across our organisation  – as well as the chance to make an impact on the world around you. You’ll gain exposure to some pretty amazing projects too, like HS2, Hinkley Point C, Perth Transport Futures and the Manchester Engineering Campus Development project.

So, whether you’re interested in a business, technical or construction career, you will have the chance to shape the future at Balfour Beatty.
