You may not have heard of Costain until now, but you’ll certainly have benefited from the work we do! We’re a very large engineering and construction company that designs, builds and manages infrastructure all over the UK. Whether it’s cleaning water, expanding airports or renovating train stations, the sort of projects we run affect the lives of billions of people.

And because these projects are so huge and so important, we need a committed and expertly trained team who are as passionate about engineering and construction as we are. Which is why we invest in young people so much – they're our team of tomorrow. 
 
One way we invest in younger generations is by supporting the Prince's Trust charity, and we are now a proud patron since 2011! We work with the charity to provide work experience, pre-employment training, ‘get into construction’ courses and job opportunities like traineeships and apprenticeships. 
 
We also visit schools regularly, talking to students about the exciting world of STEM – that's science technology, engineering and maths – and the careers within it. Take a look at the Costin Career World to find out more.
