Russells Construction professional apprentice Aidon Bannon on graduation day

Graduates and students

It is our job to support the next generation of construction professionals by offering opportunities for training, development and employment for young people in our community.

Russells Construction puts its money firmly where its mouth is with regard to training and development. We offer a number of opportunities for anyone with an interest in the professional side of construction, including graduate and graduate-training roles for project managers, quantity surveyors and estimators.

Primary among them is the Russells Construction scholarship, a fully-funded pre-graduate training scheme offered in conjunction with Salford University. We are in the eighth year of recruitment for the programme, which offers school leavers the chance to learn ‘on the job’ shoulder-to-shoulder with experienced professionals, under the guidance of a nominated mentor, as part of a friendly and supportive team.

Alongside this, they will complete a part-time degree in one of a select number of accredited courses. The five-year commitment from Russells covers the costs of university tuition and provides a salaried position throughout. Candidates are currently being sought for the 2017 intake.

A-level students and their tutors are invited to contact us to find out more information about the programme and the application process.

The business currently benefits from a number of employees who have completed the programme, including recent graduate Aidan Bannon. To read Aidan’s story, click here.

I really appreciate the investment Russells has made in training me to be a highly-qualified and experienced construction professional.
