Life at Costain

We’re open-minded, innovative and welcome diversity.

When you speak to anyone at Costain, they’ll tell you what a rewarding place it is to work: creating and developing solutions to national infrastructure challenges, building a future and improving the way things can be done.

We strike the best possible balance between imposing necessary structure and allowing individual freedom. Structure enables us to perform responsibly, allowing talented and energetic people to do things their way. It allows us to be quick on our feet in responding to the demands of our customers and in driving change.

We recognise that successful teams need people who have different skills and approaches: highly technical people who understand the importance of process in delivering highly complex solutions for our customers and people who can innovate and who don’t want tomorrow to be the same as today. And we need leaders who can inspire others to deliver projects safely, on time and for outstanding value. Whatever their skills and personality, Costain people have a common approach to their work: a duty of care to the stakeholders we serve and affect.
