Engineering Higher (Level 4) Apprenticeship

SES Engineering Services (SES) is the UK’s pre-eminent design-led Mechanical and Electrical (M&E) provider delivering bespoke, design-led, cost efficient solutions optimised for the whole construction team.

If you're interested in design and like putting your analytical and problem-solving skills to the test, then our Student Engineering Programme may be the pathway for you. Our Engineers are responsible, in short, for all the functional characteristics of a building that take it from being an empty shell to becoming a comfortable living space. Tasks can vary from designing the air filtration system in a forensic lab to controlling the temperature and lighting systems in an office to engineering the floodlights in a sports stadium.

As a Student Engineer, you will be involved in:

  • Advising on cost-effective and energy efficient systems
  • Drawing up plans, using computer-aided design and building information modelling software
  • Testing systems and making changes to plans where necessary
  • Monitoring the installation of services and managing their maintenance once the building is completed
  • Making sure all building services meet health and safety requirements and environmental legislation

About Wates Group

As a family-owned business we know that our people are at the core of our ongoing success. We are very proud to be been named Contractor of the Year, Employer of the Year and received the Judges Supreme Award at the Construction News Awards, recognising our position as a leader in our industry.

Wates Group has a proud 119 year history as an independent family owned company. In 1897 Edward Wates and his three brothers set up the first Wates Company. During the 1920s and 1930s Edward's sons, Norman, Sir Ronald and Allan, expanded the company by pioneering speculative house building and then extended their activities into general contracting. During the Second World War, the company built aerodromes, army camps, factories and most notably, developed a speciality in constructing pre-cast and in situ reinforced concrete barges and floating docks. The company supplied major parts of the Mulberry Harbours that were towed across the Channel after D-Day.
