Pre-Graduate Training Scheme

Russells Construction offers an incredible opportunity for school leavers and non-graduates to get into the industry with its in-house training scheme.

Successful applicants are enrolled onto a fully-funded five-year degree course at the University of Salford in a construction-related degree subject, while also working as part of the Russells Construction team from the firm’s Trafford Park headquarters.

In-house training will supplement the university syllabus and see trainees experience five placements in different areas of the business in the first two years. They will specialise from years three-to-five and qualify in one of a variety of professional roles, before being offered a permanent position as a quantity surveyor, estimator, site engineer or in site management*.

We are actively engaging with schools and colleges in the local area, to encourage young people to consider a career in construction and apply for this programme.

Teachers, parents and careers advisors are welcome to download the flyer and poster below and contact us for more information.

To apply email a CV and a covering letter explaining why you want to be considered for the training programme to info@russells-construction.co.uk
