Early Career Opportunities at Bechtel

Our graduate programmes are available in two of our global business units within EMEA; Infrastructure (markets include; rail, aviation, civil, power and communications) and Oil Gas & Chemicals (OG&C). The programme is accredited and will enable you to work towards chartership in your chosen area. What’s more, we’ll help you develop a sound technical competency and provide you with project experiences to give you the best possible chance of achieving chartered status.

Our Graduate Programmes

Within Infrastructure you could be working directly on some of our internationally-renowned mega projects or providing support to the Head Office function that you join. Our work mainly focuses on the engineering project management and construction phase of the project and location of our projects can vary from local London based opportunities to international opportunities in EMEA.

In our Oil, Gas & Chemicals London office you will mainly be working on the engineering design phase of the project, once the project moves into the construction phase there will be opportunity to undertake an international assignment and gain construction experience.

Whether you join us as a contracts administrator or as a process engineer, you’ll be given real responsibility from the day you begin. As the programme progresses, we'll continuously look for new ways in which you can develop your technical knowledge and gain more responsibility.

We understand that graduates play a vital role in our business, they add value not only to their function, team, project and client but to the organisation as a whole by helping us build our future capabilities one step at a time.
