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.
