Civil Engineering Placements


As a Civil Engineering trainee, we provide you with the opportunity to play an integral role in a 12 month training scheme that will develop both your technical knowledge and soft skills. Skilled mentors will work with you to ensure you get the most from your placement and are on hand once you return to University to help wherever we can.

Our in-house training department will ensure you receive all the training and support you need:

  • Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS)
  • Surveying and Setting-Out
  • C.A.T. and Signal Generator
  • Fire safety

You’ll be working in a structured programme aligned to your role and designed to shape our future leaders, giving you the experience you need to gain chartered membership of a professional body.

Typically these are the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Institute of Civil Engineers (ICE).

Hear what our year-out trainees have to say:

“During my placement with Winvic I’ve learnt a huge amount in a short space of time by shadowing previous engineers on site and I am able to see the link between my academic studies and their practical use on site. I began by shadowing an engineer, learning as much from him as possible and then had the opportunity of working by myself for a week. This was an extremely useful week where I learnt the need for speed and accuracy whilst under pressure from sub-contractors.”
