We are Laing O’Rourke. We design, manufacture, engineer and build iconic buildings and complex infrastructure projects used by millions of people every day. We’re challenging the industry with innovative design and delivery techniques. We’re changing the way we work, using the very latest digital tools and platforms. And we’re always looking to create structures that will help build a better future for everyone.
We are proud to work on some of the most prestigious projects in the UK and around the world, from London 2012, Etihad Stadium and Hong Kong Metro Rail to Crossrail (Europe’s largest infrastructure project), Hinckley Point C and the new White City Campus for Imperial College.
Our success depends on our engineering excellence, together with the adoption of new technologies and a sustained investment in talent, especially our early careers programmes for students, graduates and apprentices.
We have pioneered Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA), which is changing the way construction is done, as well as investing in Building Information Modelling (BIM) and other digital engineering tools. We have also committed more than £50 million in the last year into research and development both academically with our university partnerships and at the operational level within our manufacturing and engineering facilities where we put the academic theory into practice.
We are known for our innovation, but also our belief in growing talent. We believe in hiring and developing the very best people in the industry, challenging them to find and follow a better way and deliver excellence for our clients whilst leaving a lasting legacy for the communities in which we operate. We have an ongoing commitment to bring more people into this industry, and grow the diversity of our own business.
Our graduate programme will nurture, develop and provide ample opportunities across the UK through a structured training programme delivered by modules over two and half years. The programme is designed to bring out the best in our graduates and push them to their full potential as high-performing professionals by combining practical experience, technical learning and professional development.
Diverse on-the-job experience is complemented by an engaging series of learning modules, helping you to build the right blend of personal and professional skills. You will be mentored by experienced leaders, and enjoy strong support from line managers and a large peer group network. We will work closely with you to develop clear career goals, expand your skills and assist you in working towards the relevant professional qualification.
This is your opportunity to challenge thinking, change the world around us, and help create amazing buildings and infrastructure.
