Day-Release Trainee Scheme

If you want the best of both worlds – working and studying – we run day release schemes with educational institutions throughout the UK. Typically our trainees are recent school or college leavers with a strong academic track record.

You'll take part in a structured training programme, while continuing your university or college course on a day release basis.

The programme is designed to give you a broad appreciation of the whole construction process while focusing on your core discipline of construction management, quantity surveying, design management, estimating or planning.

Many of our senior managers and directors have graduated through our day release scheme. This reflects the standard of learning and development on the programme, and how well regarded it is in BAM.

We understand how expensive going to university has become. So as well as giving you a competitive salary, we’ll also pay your course tuition and examination fees. 

Advanced Technical Apprenticeship scheme

We also offer an Advanced Technical Apprentice scheme. Designed for school leavers with five GCSEs (or equivalent) or a Level 2 Intermediate Apprenticeship to give on-the -job training while achieving a nationally recognised level 3 qualification. Many of our apprentices have progressed into site management roles and continued academic study to HNC and degree level.
