A JOURNEY TO CHARTERSHIP
Excelerate is a comprehensive three year development programme that has been carefully designed
to underpin the rigorous chartership requirements of the various professional institutes. The three
years of the programme are structured to a very detailed level; you will be working to a plan and
against a specific timeline to ensure that you meet the experience levels required to obtain
chartership either during or shortly following the conclusion of the programme – dependent on the
professional pathway you choose and your qualifications. The programme utilises a blend of learning
methodologies which will deliver the depth and breadth of learning and practical experience. This is
combined with robust programme management to track your progress together with structured
personal feedback and a support process that will ensure your success.

WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
• You will be a team player, have fresh ideas and be prepared to challenge us and yourself
every step of the way.
• You will have recently graduated or are soon to graduate with a good Civil Engineering,
Construction Management, Building Services or Commercial / Quantity Surveying degree.
• You will join Sisk on the Excelerate graduate programme in September 2021 and will
complete a series of placements across the business (ranging between 3-12 months each),
supplemented by high-quality professional training to ensure that you develop a broad
range of skills and experience.
• It is essential that you are geographically mobile across our domestic market (England,
Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales) and our international market (mainland
Europe).

The selection process has been rigorously designed to ensure that we, as a company, select the right
individuals for our strategy, but also that you – as a candidate – select the right company to build
your career with. In return, you will receive a competitive salary, a strong start to your career and its
progression in the construction industry, with excellent support and guidance network every step of
the way.
