As a talented individual, you’ll appreciate the opportunity to apply your talents to projects that will provide you with the kind of challenges your skills deserve.

Bachy Soletanche specialises in all aspects of modern Geotechnics and Foundation Engineering, including bored and displacement piling, diaphragm walls, grouting, mini-piling, anchors, ground improvement and environmental engineering.

As one of the UK’s leading geotechnical specialists, we can offer you the chance to work on a whole range of projects that will make the most of your skills. We’ve been part of the construction teams responsible for carrying out some of the most prestigious and ambitious projects in the UK including CTRL, Crossrail and Lee Tunnel and we’re currently undertaking work on the huge Thames Tideway Tunnel scheme. We’re planning to build on these experiences and perhaps, with your help, play a significant part in the work on HS2 and much more!

*Unfortunately due to Health & Safety reasons and site requirements, applicants for the above programmes must be aged 18 years and above.

SUMMER PLACEMENTS

Bachy Soletanche offers students the ability to get a brief overview of the ground engineering industry during a summer placement. These placements are normally for a minimum of one month, but can be more, depending on the time available for the student. The placement will expose you to pre and post contract works, along with visits to operational sites.

Bachy Soletanche currently offers placement scholarship schemes with Surrey University and Glasgow University.

APPRENTICESHIPS

To compliment and strengthen our existing teams, we offer a range of exciting trainee opportunities, including: a piling apprenticeship scheme in partnership with the Federation of Piling Specialists (FPS), higher level apprenticeships in civil engineering or quantity surveying and plant apprenticeship schemes in mechanics and fabrication/welding.

YEAR IN INDUSTRY PLACEMENTS

This represents an opportunity for undergraduates taking relevant university courses in Civil Engineering to come and work with the company for up to one year, generally starting in September.  During your time with the company, you will learn about ground engineering techniques, from the early stages within the design team to spending time out on site as part of the project team.
