When is the best time to apply?
We accept applications throughout the year but short listing and interviews usually take place early in the New Year so please ensure your application reaches us in good time to allow us to consider you.
Will I need to relocate?
Our projects are predominantly based in East Anglia, Cambridgeshire in particular, so depending on where you live you may need to relocate. As is customary in our industry we have early start times on site so please consider this when deciding whether to relocate or not.
Will I need a driving license and car?
A driving license is essential during your placement as you will be regularly visiting sites whether in a surveying or site/project management capacity. Whilst not essential, having your own vehicle would be useful, with the company reimbursing you for any business mileage.

New apprenticeships begin in September to coincide with the start of the college year. For our current intake please see Apprenticeship Opportunities within our Vacancies listings above. If you wish to apply for an apprenticeship please send a CV and covering letter to: email@example.com
