Some of the North East’s leading companies are once again coming together to offer an exciting opportunity for undergraduate students to work with them in the summer of 2019.

The 12-week paid summer placement programme will allow the students to work with Northumbrian Water, Esh-Stantec, Turner & Townsend, Interserve, MMB, and Wood rotating their time among the businesses.

Successful applicants will be paid a living wage while receiving invaluable skills and experience on real life construction projects.

Richard Woodhouse, Asset Investment Programme Manager at Northumbrian Water, said: 

“The first two years of our Shared Summer Placement programme have been a huge success and we’re really pleased to be able to open this opportunity up for a third year. This is a partnership featuring some great companies, all dedicated to supporting the workforce of the future and providing exciting opportunities for young people. Everyone is really looking forward to meeting some of the young people who are interested in engineering, project management, and the built and natural environment to help them to develop their experience and skills.”

The programme has the support of the Institution of Civil Engineers and the Association for Project Managers.
