Balfour Beatty stands as one of the most valuable employers within the UK industry. With over 450 apprentices, the organization values students who are keen on gaining quality experience from a major global employer. Every year they recruit over 100 apprentices and more than 500 graduates on a global scale. Their opportunities range from technical roles to business roles. Thus, ensuring the demand for both engineers and management is met.
With regards to their apprenticeships, they range from intermediate to higher apprentice schemes. The two-year long Intermediate Apprentice Scheme, which is mainly aimed at school leavers, offers students the opportunity to gain on the job- training as well as obtain nationally recognised qualification. Targeting students who have completed their A Levels or an Advanced Apprenticeship, the Higher Technical Apprenticeship offers a structured work based training programme. Alongside, apprentices are able to continue their studies and obtain higher qualifications and in some case a Foundation Degree or even an Honours degree. Ultimately, successful candidates can be expected to work as railway engineers, mechanical engineers and construction managers, amongst others.
The organization’s highly competitive graduate schemes recruit graduates from different technical disciplines including transport planning. As an organization who values the development and training of its staff Balfour Beatty ensure that their programmes equip graduates with the skills which are currently in demand.
