Graduate Civil Engineer, Cumbria at Balfour Beatty
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Have some experience. It's obvious, but the guy who keeps referring to a project he did in university will never have as much to say as the girl who's worked on a site even if that was only for a summer placement. It's also very useful to know details about the project beyond the area worked on, a highly driven applicant would understand that as a contracting business knowing the project inside is an appealing quality.

Interview Advice:

If you can demonstrate a genuine interest for the industry everything will flow easily. If you're able to talk about issues in the industry, exciting projects, site visits you've been on etc. things like that, the interview quickly becomes more of a conversation than an interview. If you can't do this the interviewer will be forced to stick to those dreaded teamwork questions.

Application Advice:

Be prepared to take on a huge amount of responsibility right from the get go. I wasn't eased into the project, or asked to shadow an engineer for a number of months, on the contrary I was given a significant role within the project team straight away. At times this is quite daunting as most of the work I was carrying out was completely new to me and the job itself can become pretty stressful. However, it forces you out of your comfort zone and as a result you adapt to the role more quickly and learn how to deal with this on your own.

Interview Advice:

Be confident and show your personality. Everybody that has been put forward for the interview has good grades/degree, what will make you stand out from the rest of the applicants is your personality. The interviewer is probably thinking "Can I work with this person on a daily basis?", therefore it's important to show that you can fit into a working environment and that you will get along with your fellow colleagues.
I enjoyed the Balfour Beatty application process, even though it can seem tough and daunting. Nobody that is assessing you is trying to catch you out. Everybody I dealt with in the company during the process was extremely welcoming and this made it a lot easier.

Application Advice:

Whilst it's always important to demonstrate your experience or show confidence, don't forget to give equal attention in your covering letter to Balfour Beatty and why you want to join it. Do your research. What are their core values / key skills? What is their mission statement? What projects have they worked on recently that have interested you?

Interview Advice:

Graduates are not expected to know everything. If you are asked an engineering question in an interview you can't immediately answer, explain the engineering principles you understand will be at work in the scenario described, or where you would go to find and verify the answer.

The interview process often incorporates a "working with others" section where you'll be asked to work with that day's applicants. Working towards the objective set is important, but it is arguably more important to show your team working skills - how well you listen, how you lead and influence others, time management and your general temperament.

Don't be afraid to mention past experiences that you might think are irrelevant (e.g. a different industry to the company you are applying to) - sometimes those experiences are valued by the employer and relate to the company values in ways you wouldn't have thought. Although it may not sound appropriate, discussing how work behind a bar has helped you develop skills for a job in finance or law can be noted positively by the interviewer.

Application Advice:

To show passion for advancing in your career path in such industry as well as demonstrate understanding of Balfour Beatty's four values: Integrity, Excellence, Teamwork and Respect.

Interview Advice:

I believe the main key is to demonstrate confidence in one's ability. Balfour Beatty are looking for future leaders amongst graduates. A starting point would be to think back and plan responses to how the company's four values have applied to your life history - in other words, demonstrating these values comes as second nature to you. For instance one story about Teamwork could be about your role in a society at university and how well you worked with other committee members to deliver a benefit, realise a vision or reach a goal.

It's a good start to your career, looks good on the CV and gives you an opportunity to work on some very prestigious projects.

Application Advice:

Thoroughly research the company and make sure that the opportunities on offer align with personal career goals. My experience within BBGE is that hard work pays off and people respect each other provided they contribute to the success of the business.

People can be scared in interviews with large companies but it is important to always be yourself and show what you can offer. Interviewers only get one opportunity to judge you so it is important you allow your personality to shine and that you convey your skills which are relevant to position applied for.

Interview Advice:

Don't be scared / shy, be yourself and engage with the interviewers and other people there. Use the opportunity to shine and make yourself an exciting proposition for the company.

Graduate Engineer, Woolwich C530 Crossrail at Balfour Beatty
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

You would do well to have some site experience but what really sets you apart is an awareness of commercial aspects of construction. Any examples of a time you have streamlined to become more efficient, used another method that has less resource requirements, these will show you are aware of commercial aspects. Health and safety is also of paramount importance. Do not be afraid to look at previous incidents which have caused LTIs or fatalities at BB or other contractors and how that drives you to prevent further incidents in the future.

Interview Advice:

Do not lie! Be yourself. If you fail an interview based on your personality, the chances are you would hate the job anyway! Other than that, think of some interesting questions. Show interest in new developments in construction which set Balfour Beatty apart from the competition. An example would be Balfour Beatty's near monopoly on tunnel cabling works following success in developing a number of tunnel cable installation machines. Also look at what the current CEO of BB is doing to move the company forward and the results this has brought so far (huge influx of cash).

Application Advice:

Understanding exactly what the questions are after is paramount. Take your time and plan your answers. Do not rush.
Do all practice tests available. You can never be too prepared.

Interview Advice:

Phone Interview:
Research of current projects is key. Showing you know about the company is a great step to the assessment centre.

Assessment Centre:
Don't back down from taking a lead role in the group exercise. Be the time keeper as well.
Don't be scared to ask questions throughout, showing you want to learn more is a big positive.
Remember, it's not all about you selling yourself to them, if they like you, they will sell themselves to you. Asking questions in the one-to-one interview about what they do for graduates and how many graduates have achieved chartership with the company will really give you the edge.
Interact with everyone, don't shy away from conversation. Try and keep it away from work aspects. Getting to know current employees and the other graduates on a personal level shows great people skills.

Also important are the company values and how you can demonstrate them - have good examples of a "time you demonstrated....." etc.

Interview Advice:

Be calm, confident and relaxed. Listen to what others say in the group exercises but put your points across. Confidence is key. In the interview, the interviewers want to get to know a bit about you, so be able to open up and give full answers to allow your personality to come across.

Application Advice:

In terms of the application it is important to relating questions asked to Balfour Beatty to show an understanding of the companys values and areas of work as well as expressing a reason as to why you want to work for them.

Interview Advice:

Although I had a couple of workplacements with the companyI had to complete a graduate assesment day before my final year at uni which decided whether I would be taken on as a graduate or not. Here I had to take part in a group discussion / presentation, numerical and verbal reasoning tests and a face to face interview with someone from the HR department. As I had already completed a workplacement by this time it was easy for me to relate questions such as, tell me about a challenging situations and how you overcame it, to previous experience on site.

Following the completion of this graduate assesment day I was told that I would be sponsored through my final year and that jobs would be sent out to me towards the end of my uni year which I would put my cv in for so that the individual site team or region would decide if they wanted me to attend a further interview.

This final interview was similar to the HR interview except either the project manager for the site, or operations director from the region would conduct the interview. At this stage it is important to show your knowledge of site activities and to highlight your eagerness to gain chartership, as this is a key trait that Balfour Beatty are looking for.

Application Advice:

If you get to an assessment centre then try not to stress about it too much - much easier said than done, but the assessors aren't there to trip you up they just want to see how you work. Make sure you are dressed smartly as that first impression will count, but try to relax. Especially in the graduate assessment centre, the work you have to do is no way near as tough as University work.
With the written assessment plan your time and give yourself the best chance to get all of your points across.
Make sure you get involved with the group discussion work. Don't try to stop anyone else from talking, encouraging others to also get their points across will be much more beneficial.
With the psychometric tests do as much practice as you can. There are lots of free online practice tests, the more you do the more confident you will feel with their format.
