Work experience

Gaining relevant work experience is a great stepping stone to kick-starting your career. We offer 1-2 week placements for students aged between 14-18 years old who are looking to gain valuable work experience in an engineering and technology environment. It may even lead to consideration for a paid Apprentice or Student role.

This will provide you with the opportunity to experience working on a live project or in an office environment where you will learn vital interpersonal skills such as teamwork, communication and problem solving, as well as gain a better understanding of the wide breadth of roles within Costain. We employ a diverse range of people in anything from Software Engineering, Civil or Mechanical Engineering to Innovation leads.

To find out more and request a work experience placement please contact the project which is nearest to you with a CV and covering letter to explain what area you would like to gain experience in and preferred dates. Placements offered are subject to availability and priority will be given to students in the local area wherever possible.

At Costain we aim to be an accessible, diverse and inclusive organisation to continue to meet our customers’ needs. We will be industry leading in our approach and people from all backgrounds will be proud to work for Costain. Our goal is to have a workforce that is representative of society.
