Graduate Development programmeStepping into your career with Mace will set you on a path to success - experiencing exciting opportunities while learning from industry leaders.
Undergraduate programmesWe have developed programmes to give ambitious undergraduates first-hand experience of working on live projects and discover what a career in the construction industry can offer.
“Construction is different. It’s fast paced, there are a variety of clients and each project has its own unique challenges. There is a lot of diversity within the industry and you get to work with so many different people, from clients to consultants, contractors to local authorities. Construction is global and being in the industry we get the opportunity to work in many international locations, which is great.”
“I’ve also had the opportunity to go on Mace’s Developing Success programme. It’s been a fantastic opportunity to establish a network across the business where we learn from each other. The programme has given me the confidence to push my career and has really encouraged me to be creative and forward thinking.”
“If my 20-year-old self could see me now I’d be surprised! As a student it was a struggle to get out of bed for 9.30am. I have a passion for what I do more than I ever anticipated - even after 35 years. The pleasure I’ve had out of working in this industry is just something I could never have envisioned at 20.”
AN ENTREPRENEURIAL CULTURE
“I like the way Mace focuses on it's people and how easy it is to feel like you belong. I also like how open the Board Directors are to new ideas - they really empower employees to involve themselves in pieces of work that are important to them but may be outside their normal scope.”

DUAL PASSIONS: TRAVEL AND WORK
“Having the opportunity to work abroad so early on in my career has greatly influenced my career objectives. Being able to demonstrate to our clients that borders do not affect our ability to deliver high quality projects emphasises the value we add as a business.”
“I’m immensely proud of all the work we do with our communities. We really put a lot of effort in, not just to keep people informed about the work we’re doing, but to understand their needs and give back to them. I like to think we always go the extra mile. I really enjoy working with schools, especially because it opens the girls’ eyes to jobs in construction. It’s great to know that you’ve inspired someone - given them another option and something to think about.”
