Inspirational Careers Advice

We have joined forces with innovative careers website U-Explore to encourage more young people to consider a career at Costain.


U-Explore is a website created to help 11-18 year olds discover and explore careers they’ll love.

Visit our employer profile

U-Explore provide a free and comprehensive digital platform called Start. Start offers a single starting point to help simplify and improve careers guidance. Start helps schools and colleges to meet their statutory duties around careers guidance, combining the most comprehensive source of information with a personalised student experience and tracking capabilities to help teachers monitor student progress and engagement.

Working with U-Explore we have created the Costain employer profile to represent the sectors the Company operates in and included various job roles to demonstrate the various careers available within the Group. The jobs are a mix of entry-level and aspirational roles and the site offers advice about how you get started, what skills are needed, what qualifications are required and what salary might be expected.

There are also short video clips of Costain employees talking about their role, how they got started, what their key skills are, what they love about their job and, as with all jobs, what the biggest challenges are.

Since the launch in October 2017 over 11,000 young people have researched Costain job roles.
