Work experience

We offer placements for students aged between 14-18 years old who are looking to gain experience in an engineering and construction environment.

This will provide you with the opportunity to experience working on a project or in a head office environment where you will learn core behavioural skills such as communication, team-working, and interpersonal skills, as well gain an awareness of the breadth of roles within Costain.

What is Building Awareness?

Building Awareness is a Costain programme aimed at 14-18 year olds which raises awareness of the construction industry and promotes it as a career. Building Awareness provides:

  • Support for schools and teachers
  • Work experience placements
  • Sponsorship for talented young people in 6th form
  • A stepping stone for university sponsorship or apprenticeships.
