The two-year Young Engineer Programme introduces you to different engineering and project execution roles in our head office and on projects abroad.

We will offer you a position that fits your profile, ambitions and experience level.

Do you fit the profile?
The most important qualities are: enjoying a challenge and being able to find solutions for unexpected problems.

As BAM International is working on large-scale projects in various countries and cultures throughout the world, each with its own particular challenges, we need to select our engineers carefully. As a young professional you will immediately be given many responsibilities and due to a limited amount of positions per year, we need to be sure that you will fit in.

You are open and flexible to work in any project location around the globe. You are enterprising and actively contributing to fulfilling a task or solving the problem at hand. You dare to take the lead on joint actions. In addition you easily adapt yourself to quickly changing circumstances and you are able to put yourself in the shoes of others without comprising your values.
