Work experience with Currie & Brown
Currie & Brown offers a range of work experience opportunities across our global business for people interested in a career in construction consultancy. Our work experience placements give a real insight into working in a professional consultancy environment within the construction industry.
These opportunities are suited to those considering a career as a quantity surveyor, project manager or building surveyor, but we also welcome those who would like a placement in our support functions including marketing, finance, HR and IT. Currie & Brown partners with schools and colleges to provide placements for their students.
The work placement programme focuses heavily on a learning experience. We set clear and defined learning objectives and work with the students to help them achieve their objectives. During the placements, which are usually one or two weeks long, our People Department offers pastoral support.
