Early Careers

At FM Conway we actively push the fantastic career opportunities that the construction industry offers and are always looking at ways to encourage young people to consider and experience the world of construction.

Whether you’re coming straight from school or college, or already have a few years’ experience and are looking for a career change, you will be supported every step of the way.


Work Experience

Work experience is a vital way for young people to gain an insight into the working world. At FM Conway, we are driven to not only invest in the development of our people but also to the future generations and emerging talent of construction.

Work experience provides the opportunity of personal, professional, and academic growth.

Each work experience programme is tailored to suit the needs of the participant but always includes:
  • Exploration of their interests, strengths, values, and professional identity
  • Industry knowledge, career insights, and career paths
  • Developing interpersonal skills and engaging in professional networking
  • Opportunities to demonstrate their abilities and practical expertise in a real world setting
  • Confidence building and developing soft skills
  • Support to transition from education to the working environment
