    The Costain Graduate Development Scheme is an intensive 2-year programme designed to equip high flying graduates with the skills and experience required to take them forward in their career with the company. We will further support you in the 3rd year of your studies to gain your professional qualification. Our programme includes regular “boot” camps and training days to provide you with certain non technical skills and also enables graduates to rotate a number of times during the scheme across a number of areas of the business.


    We offer a mentor to each graduate to support your development as well as a structured training programme to support graduates working towards achieving a professional accounting qualification over 3 years. Graduates can work on a number of projects around the UK during the programme in our key areas of transportation, energy and water as well as in the corporate headquarters.


    Costain offers a range of exciting development opportunities to accelerate your career and enable you to achieve your potential both during and after the Graduate Development Scheme.

    What will I be doing?

    As a finance graduate you will develop your technical, leadership and management skills through working in a number of different areas:

    • Project accounting on a project site
    • Divisional level management accounting and reporting
    • Internal audit
    • Corporate reporting taxation and accounting
    • Budgeting and business planning
    • Treasury function


    Your experience will support your progress in professional exams, and you should aim to be a qualified accountant by the end of the programme.

    About you
