Planning Programme

Planning is one of the most important parts of construction. Here we focus on all aspects of the project – who does what, the choice of technology, estimating what resources and materials are required, how long parts of the project will take and right through to working with different partners and suppliers. It is a crucial part of any project.

Is this you?

For a career in Planning, you’ve got to be focused both on the detail of a project as well as the overall objective. There’s an element of being able to work through scenarios, schedules and costs, as well as work with different teams to get their input so being a clear communicator is key.

What to study?

Maths and Science are important to becoming a planner, both at GCSE and A level. But you’ll also need good IT, planning and organisational skills.


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.
