Job Description

We are Laing O’Rourke. We design, manufacture, engineer and build iconic buildings and complex infrastructure projects used by millions of people every day. We’re challenging the industry with innovative design and delivery techniques. Our projects are worth millions of pounds, sometimes hundreds of millions of pounds. 

Imagine the number of components involved, the sheer scale of materials required and the resources we need to build the structure. Estimating all of that is what we do. It requires us to research materials, equipment, labour costs and suppliers. We need to look at the timescales and risks, prices, exchange rates and work schedules. It’s a complex but fascinating area of work. 

Estimator Apprenticeship

We expect you to have a real interest in every aspect of the construction process, as well as good commercial sense. This work means looking at lots of data and getting to grips with so many different areas of construction, but also working with teams and suppliers from the bidding and buying process right through the project.

What qualifications will I need?

For our School & College Leaver Programme. you’ll need to achieve 96 UCAS points or more. Maths and Science are important to becoming an engineer, both at GCSE and A level but you’ll also need good IT and planning skills.

Where will I be working?

Primarily in the office but also visiting projects, which could be anywhere in the UK and your hours would roughly be 9am to 5pm.

If you want a programme where you can work for us and at the same time study for a higher or degree apprenticeship, please apply now.
