Applications open for BBV internships
University students in the Midlands are being offered the chance to join HS2 contractor Balfour Beatty Vinci (BBV) on an eight-week paid work placement this summer.
The 2023 programme, which begins in July, will include placement opportunities at BBV’s construction sites and offices in South Staffordshire, Birmingham, Coventry, and North and South Warwickshire. The placements are open to candidates studying a range of subjects, with opportunities in:
civil engineering (earthworks, tunnels and structures)

business support functions (including HR, IT, procurement and finance).
BBV began its undergraduate summer scheme in 2022 with 30 students, of whom two went on to secure full-time employment, with BBV paying the remainder of their university fees so they could continue their studies while working.
Malik Al-Maliky from Moseley, Birmingham joined the 2022 programme and is now undertaking a year in industry placement with BBV’s IT team.
Ryan Masundrie from Coventry has been given a full-time job with BBV as an apprentice quantity surveyor, with BBV paying off the remainder of his chartered surveyor fees.
Expressions of interest for the 2023 programme are open now and prospective candidates are encouraged to apply early to secure one of 30 places.
