Fast-track your future by shaping ours
Why join ISG?
As the world’s most dynamic construction company, at ISG we build sustainable places where people and businesses thrive. We’re known for our commitment to quality and for the passion of our most important asset – our people. Our graduate programme gives you an unrivalled opportunity to fast-track your career in construction. You’ll have exposure to all aspects of our business whilst focusing your development in one of our core specialisms: Construction Management, Quantity Surveying or Technical Services. Whichever you choose, you’ll be empowered to deliver extraordinary customer service and the kind of state-of-the-art projects that will set the standards for our industry for years to come.
Our graduates are our leaders of tomorrow. So we make sure they have the opportunity to work on some of our most innovative and challenging projects. In the past, these have included everything from the O2 arena and Microsoft’s offices in Berlin, to the Temperate House at Kew Gardens, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Not only that, but we’ll give you all the training and support you need to realise your full potential, together with the kind of working culture that will allow you to follow your interests outside of work too. Get ready to build a very exciting future in an environment that’s fast-paced and truly rewarding.
What you can expect
Our two-year programme will begin with a number of rotations covering areas like pre-construction, winning work, technical building services, construction management and commercial management. On each, you’ll take on real responsibility on live projects, learning from our experts and putting your skills to the test on key tasks. These rotations will help you to build a wider understanding of the construction industry as well as how your preferred specialism fits into the bigger picture of what we do here. You can also opt to undertake additional rotations in areas like Health & Safety and sustainability – we want the programme to match your interests so you have a fantastic foundation from which to build your career moving forward.
Throughout the programme, you’ll have support from a supervisor and a taught programme of learning – both of which will help you on your journey towards chartership. From the outset, you’ll be encouraged to share your ideas and to challenge the norm – if you think there’s a better way of doing things, we’ll be all ears. Everyone here has a part to play in creating the best possible outcomes for our business, our people and our customers. This is an environment where you’ll be free to communicate and collaborate.
