Mission statement

As a leading construction company, we take our role in society seriously, working to improve the UK’s built environment and delivering lasting change for the communities we work in.

Our purpose is to improve people’s lives by building the facilities and infrastructure that communities need; providing opportunities for our people to learn, grow and progress; working with our supply chain to promote the very best working practices and caring for the environment in which we work.

While we love a hard hat and high-viz vest, there’s more to us than PPE. We are at the cutting-edge of digitalisation, using robots, AI and Modern Methods of Construction to deliver the future of the UK. And if a career on site isn’t for you, you could join one of our many professions including HR, Carbon, Data Analytics, Bid Management, Systems Development, Finance or Social Value.

Graduate Development Programme

Join the #1 Grad Programme in Construction & Civil Engineering

TheJobCrowd has named us the best place for graduates in construction and civil engineering across the UK, and our award-winning Graduate Programme is designed to give you a rich, hands-on experience where you will develop your technical skills, grow your network and gain professional qualifications if you want to.

Work with some of the best people in the industry in a full-time role, as you start an exciting and rewarding career where you will be enabled to add value to society.

The programme lasts for two years and runs in parallel to your permanent job, with six modules including our much enjoyed Module 4, a teambuilding event in the great outdoors designed to bring out your interpersonal and leadership skills, and complement the hands-on technical experience that you will gain in your role.

If you decide to work towards professional qualifications, we will fully fund your qualification and pair you with a dedicated mentor. You will also have access to the GT Academy, an online portal that will aid your professional development both while on the Graduate Programme and onwards in your career.

Our programme culminates with a celebration of you and a promotion within your role to start the next stage of your career.
