Apply for this job

A Balfour Beatty paid internship is the perfect introduction to one of the most interesting and challenging industries in the world. Joining us for twelve months, you’ll have the time to get right under the skin of our business and your role. You’ll turn potential into proven expertise. And you’ll work with people who’ll give you the right foundations for your post-graduation career.

As well as bags of priceless, hands-on experience, you’ll receive a competitive salary and a number of useful benefits. You could also take a big step towards a place on our Graduate Scheme.

Our Quantity Surveying undergraduate roles will tend to be site based; however, occasionally we have office-based placements available depending on project requirements. We develop projects of differing size and scope throughout the UK and you will work with the commercial team ensuring we make the optimal margin on a project.

The role:

None of our projects, from vital routine maintenance to ground-breaking high-profile builds, would happen without our Commercial team. So, when you join us, you’ll quickly become a vital part of life here.

Your day to day responsibilities may include:

· Locate, track and assemble pre and post contract documentation, complimented with the necessary administration skills

· Assist with measuring, recording and valuing of work supervised in accordance with appropriate rules and procedures

· Collation of Cost and Value information

· Supporting the team with weekly and monthly works programmes

· Understanding of commercial risks

· Assisting with allocating work to subcontractors

· Valuing completed work and arranging payments in line with BB processes and procedures

· Making sure a project meets the legal and quality standard

What we’re looking for:

· Have a flexible approach to work and able to adapt to change (you will be required to travel as part of the programme)

· Have a team focus with the ability to communicate and build relationships with a wide variety of people at all levels

· Have a driven, self-motivated attitude, with the ability to work on your own initiative and influence key decisions

What you’ll need:

· Be studying for a BSc (Hons) in Quantity Surveying/Commercial Management - expecting to achieve a 2:2 or above

· Ideally, have a full UK driving licence

· Be eligible to work and live in the UK

Salary and Benefits:

We offer a competitive salary dependent on your year of study and any other previous experience. You may also be invited to return for further work placements and ultimately a place on the Balfour Beatty Graduate Scheme, subject to further assessments.
