About Laing O'Rourke

We are Laing O'Rourke. We design, manufacture, engineer and build iconic buildings and complex infrastructure projects used by millions of people every day. We're challenging the industry with innovative design and delivery techniques. We're changing the way we work, using the very latest digital tools and platforms.

Procurement Programme

Imagine we are building a £500m project. We have to make sure that we are buying the right materials and bringing in the right partners and subcontractors, to ensure the project is successful. That means really understanding what the project involves, and then identifying and selecting the best supply change. Of course, it’s not just about the lowest price; we have to manage risk by building relationships and delivering ‘best value’. Here you will become skilled in a wide variety of business disciplines including: Negotiation, Risk Management, Stakeholder & Relationship Management, Legal & Contract, Commercial, Finance, Quality Assurance, Planning, Health & Safety Assessment, Environmental Impact and Cultural & Social Responsibility.

Is this you?

You have to be interested in numbers and how we get the best value, of course. But that’s just part of the role. You have to be commercially aware, curious and keen to understand more about trends in national and international markets: a thorough knowledge of our supplier chains; and how these can successfully deliver for us. This will be a really dynamic, satisfying and rewarding career where you will make a real impact in supporting our business in delivering some of the most iconic and technically demanding construction and infrastructure projects in the UK and around the world.

What to study?

We expect GCSE Grade B in Maths and English as well as three A levels at Grades B, C, C, or above.


A five-year programme that combines academic learning with on-the-job training. Successful candidates will complete a fully funded accredited day-release HNC and/or degree in their chosen area of interest while working as a Laing O’Rourke employee. The programme also includes a series of in-house modules, aimed at exposing you to the latest developments in construction and engineering. Your personal and professional growth will be supported throughout the programme using career planning toolkits and tailored development plans. During the programme you will work across a range of businesses and projects, which will offer the breadth and variety to support your career progression and will contribute towards your professional development.
