Your development

We have designed our programme to ensure that you get the best possible start to your career with us. During the 30 month programme you’ll be constantly helped and supported by an experienced colleague who will mentor you.

Our Graduate Development Programme is made up of five main elements:

Management development, focusing on developing your personal effectiveness;

Safety, health, environment and quality, where you’ll learn crucial information about minimising personal risk to everyone on site;

Technical, designed to equip you with core competencies and skills for our business such as measurement, BIM and design appreciation;

Ambassador duties, giving you the opportunity to share your experiences at external events and in schools;

Professional development, in which you’ll work towards registration with the professional body relevant to your discipline.


We offer undergraduate students a structured, 12 month industrial placement programme that provides an outstanding introduction to the industry, offering exposure to all aspects of our business. Many of our placement students receive final-year sponsorship, making our programmes a great route to a permanent role on graduation. Programmes are available to students studying subjects including:

Commercial management and / or quantity surveying
Construction management
Civil engineering
Design management
Chemical engineering
Mechanical engineering
Electrical engineering
Building services
Instrumentation and control engineering                        

During your time with us you’ll do real work, learning from an experienced mentor on a programme of development structured around your discipline. Our programmes are regularly updated based on feedback we get from the people who take part – which means they’re tailored to ensure you get the maximum value. And you’ll receive the benefits you’d expect from a full-time job, like a competitive salary and twenty-six days’ holiday (plus the usual bank holidays).

As well as our 12 month programmes, we offer placements of up to three months during university vacations in the same disciplines listed above.

ICE QUEST scholarships

We take part in the Institution of Civil Engineers QUEST scheme to sponsor engineering students through their degrees and provide paid summer placements and potential full time roles on graduation. If you're interested please view our placement video.


Applications should be made via our online system and include an up-to-date CV and covering letter. Your details will be reviewed and if you are successful you will be invited to interview.

Yes. We actively encourage our graduates to register with the relevant professional scheme and provide support in the form of a mentor to help you as you work towards professional registration. 

We offer vacation placements to all our sponsored students as long as the work is available.

In addition to the financial benefits and the opportunity for industrial placements, we offer guidance and direction to help you complete your coursework successfully. 

We have many projects across the UK so it’s likely there will be a location to suit you, although in some cases you may have to relocate.

At the end of your placement your line manager may recommend that we invite you to apply for sponsorship for your remaining years at university. If your application is approved you will receive a bursary paid on the condition that you work for Morgan Sindall for at least 30 months following graduation.
