Work Experience

Laing O'Rourke offers work experience opportunities to anyone who might be considering a career in the construction industry.


A work experience placement will typically last one or two weeks and is aimed at those who have an interest in civil engineering, construction, manufacturing as well as corporate services, such as corporate affairs, finance, human capital, legal or information technology. 

Please click on the link above to make your application. Under our data protection policy, we are no longer able to receive speculative CVs or covering letters, with all applications now made through the link above. 

Once your application has been received, your request will be processed in discussion with your desired team or location. If we’re able to facilitate your work experience request, we’ll be in touch to arrange a suitable time to complete your work experience with us. 

Please note that popular times, such as school summer holidays, get booked up quickly. Please allow plenty of time in advance to make your application. 

Due to our health and safety policy we do not offer work experience for those under 14 years old. If you are between 14 -16 years, you can complete your work experience in a Laing O’Rourke regional or project office, however, you will not be allowed onto one of our construction sites. For those 16 and over, you can request work experience on a construction site, or at one of our depots or manufacturing facilities (along with our regional or project offices).
