Closing Date applications are open until 16th March 2020; however, Balfour Beatty reserves the right to remove adverts should the roles be filled before this date.

About the programme:

A Balfour Beatty paid internship is the perfect introduction to one of the most interesting and challenging industries in the world. Joining us for twelve months, youll have the time to get right under the skin of our business and your role. Youll turn potential into proven expertise. And youll work with people wholl give you the right foundations for your post-graduation career.

As well as bags of priceless, hands-on experience, youll receive a competitive salary and a number of useful benefits. You could also take a big step towards a place on our Graduate Scheme.

Our Planning undergraduate roles will tend to be site based; however, occasionally we have office-based placements available depending on project requirements. Our aim is to provide you with an insight into our business, whilst gaining valuable experience of planning to support your studies.

What you'll be doing

Joining an evolving team, youll get to do more than just plan and control. Youll get to shape the direction of the team with your ideas and input, while working alongside our world-class project teams. Youll get to drive and influence your career development too. Your day to day responsibilities may include:

  • Assisting with the development of planning policy, including strategies which take account of transport, the local economy, jobs, green infrastructure, renewable energy, climate change and the historic environment
  • Reviewing and monitoring existing planning policy documents
  • Helping to draft and review planning applications
  • Conducting appropriate research to inform planning applications
  • Assisting with consultations and negotiations with consultants and developers
  • Helping to enforce planning controls for developments
  • Helping to prepare policy or guidance documents on how to manage historic environments
  • Assisting with the provision of services to clients and contributing to projects
  • Liaising with managers and engineers to discuss the project progress and sort any issues which arise
  • Producing tender plans to support tender bids
  • Creating, maintaining, reviewing and administering construction schedules and plans
  • Presenting information internally and keeping the client team updated on progress for presentation to the client
  • Liaising with external contractors and suppliers to organise the many phases of the construction development

What we're looking for

  • Have a flexible approach to work and able to adapt to change (you may be required to relocate as part of the programme)
  • Have a team focus with the ability to communicate and build relationships with a wide variety of people at all levels
  • Have a driven, self-motivated attitude, with the ability to work on your own initiative and influence key decisions

What you'll need:

  • Be studying for a BEng (Hons) or BSc (Hons) in a built environment discipline - expecting to achieve a 2:2
  • Ideally, have a full UK driving licence
  • Be eligible to work and live in the UK

Salary and Benefits

We offer a competitive salary dependent on your year of study and any other previous experience. You may also be invited to return for further work placements and ultimately a place on the Balfour Beatty Graduate Scheme, subject to further assessments.

We value diversity and celebrate individual differences, believing that our inclusive culture helps the business continue to grow as a strong, dynamic and innovative organisation.

Balfour Beatty is a corporate signatory to WISE (Women in Science & Engineering) programme. Our aim is to attract more people from diverse backgrounds to help us build on our inclusive culture.

Balfour Beatty is a leading member of The 5% Club, which is now in operation in over 200 companies.
