Careers: Student Placement Opportunities

Synergy see engagement with local schools and universities as a key way to improve sector knowledge and develop a pipeline of ‘home grown’ talent. We have created links with several schools and universities in our local communities and support them at their careers talks and fairs.

In addition we offer a number of 12 month industrial placements which provide valuable experience in working within the construction industry as well as limited 1 or 2 week school placements for students interested in pursuing a career within the construction profession.

"My year out placement with Synergy is adding significant value to my understanding and enjoyment of the role through first hand experiences and training. Although I gained a basic understanding as to the processes and functions whilst at university, a lot of topics still didn’t quite add up, however, being on placement has allowed me to put those processes into fruition, and see how they interact in a real-world scenario, clarifying any gaps I had before joining. The levels of responsibility, from general site measurement to meeting with clients and contractors on my own, has also been invaluable to developing the skills that are required which will stand me in good stead heading into the workplace in the future and preparing me for my final year of university.
