Early careers

We will have hundreds of opportunities for local people to kick-start their careers via apprenticeships, traineeships and graduate programmes

During construction, we will have a wide range of apprenticeships, traineeships and graduate programmes.

These will be in a wide range of disciplines from site-based roles such as steel fixers and electricians, to office-based ones like accounting and engineering.

We’ll also be championing career progression, with apprenticeships from intermediate to degree level and graduate programmes designed with leadership skills.

These opportunities will be for everybody, from young people who’ve finished school, to adult learners who may be wanting to get back into work or those looking for something new.
