Building Information Modelling (Central Government Sector) Graduate Programme London/Winchester September 2024

Lock Applications for this job are now closed

At Mace, we’re global experts in shaping the built environment – helping to lead the way to a more connected, resilient and sustainable world. From development and consultancy, to construction and operations, we connect expertise across the entire property lifecycle to help our clients, people, communities and society achieve more than they believe is possible.

The opportunity

This role starts inearly September 2024, and is based in London split with Winchester in the Central Government: Education (Schools) or Ministry of Justice sector within our Consult engine.

Delivering for everyone, everywhere. The work of government never stands still: changing requirements necessitates adaptation and evolution. And so too, their estates. The public sector faces many challenges when delivering projects and programmes for the communities they serve. From building homes to modernising leisure facilities there are tight timescales. Pressed budgets. Constantly changing political priorities.

Add in sustainability targets, devolution, ageing under-utilised estates, plus efforts to rebuild communities post-pandemic and government needs a trusted partner, with local knowledge, that delivers. Across consultancy and construction, Mace has been supporting government departments, both in the UK and overseas, for over 25 years. From rationalising estates and embedding sustainability, to improving the efficiency and effectiveness of projects across the built environment. Creating places that matter. We have been providing multi-disciplinary services across the justice and blue lights sector – from single building resilience upgrades to multi-faceted prison infrastructure programmes.

In our Consult engine, you’ll be part of a global think tank where innovation and sustainability take the lead. We collaborate closely with clients to understand their individual challenges, lending new ideas and fresh thinking to make strategic decisions and shape project directions. We will follow our clients where they work, often sharing their locations. Whilst we visit projects and sites, Consult is more about delivery of creative solutions than hardhats. If on-site action speaks to you more, our Construct engine might be your scene – check out the hands-on roles we have there, where you’ll be turning plans into reality on the ground.
