Start your career with SES Engineering Services

At SES, we are proud to be a part of the Wates Group, a family-owned business, small enough to recognise and support great talent, yet big enough to challenge and interest our people through amazing multi-million-pound projects. To us, construction and engineering is more than just building and pipes and wires. It’s also a chance for us to positively impact the communities where we work and thrive.

Our Early Careers programmes offer a range of exciting development opportunities to undergraduates, graduates, school and college leavers as well as trade professionals. No matter what your background or aspiration, we’ll help you find the right path where you can explore, grow and thrive as a professional.

World Youth Skills Day, held this year on 15 July, is an opportunity to celebrate the future of our industry and others, and look at new ways we can upskill young people across the country to help them forge exciting careers. And following last week’s announcement by the Government of more funding for firms taking on apprentices, it’s become more important than ever that young people are fully aware of their options.

Hear from Emily Marner, Project Engineer, in her blog where she shares her thoughts on her own apprenticeship starting out at SES 11 years ago and her thoughts on how to encourage more people to consider construction as a career from an early age.

SES takes the importance of championing the future generation very seriously and provides a number of different avenues to those who are interested in a career in the construction industry including placements, work experience and apprenticeships to name but a few.  The video below highlights a number of those avenues which are available.
