Laing O'Rourke

Laing O'Rourke

Laing O'Rourke is a multidisciplinary design, manufacturing, engineering and construction group. Through our global network, we have a presence in a wide variety of sectors across Europe, the Middle East, Canada, Australia and Southeast Asia.

Our capabilities cover the full lifecycle of buildings and infrastructure. 

This means we are involved before the start and beyond the completion of construction – from funding and planning a development to managing the end product. The combined expertise of our in-house delivery businesses enable us to engage in some of the largest and most complex projects, including the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Park.

As an engineering enterprise, Laing O'Rourke is actively challenging and changing the industry through the adoption of innovative design and delivery approaches. Working with pre-eminent academic institutions and research bodies, we are developing new products and systems to make the construction process safer, smarter and more sustainable. Education is fundamental to our business and we support our most gifted employees through fast-track professional development programmes designed in consultation with some of the world's most prestigious universities.

In the UK we open recruitment for our Graduate Development Programme each Autumn with assessments running through to the Spring.

As a Laing O'Rourke graduate you will work through a structured two and a half year programme combining practical experience, academic learning and professional development. At the same time, you will follow a step-by-step process designed to fast-track you towards chartership. We will initiate lateral moves across key disciplines (where applicable) to provide you with breadth and variety and to facilitate your continued professional development.

Diverse on-the-job experience will be complemented by an engaging series of learning modules, providing you with an in-depth understanding of business principles and exposing you to the latest industry expertise. These workshops are designed to help our future leaders grow the personal and professional skills required for project delivery excellence.
