CONSTRUCTION STUDENTS – AN ENTRY INTO THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY
Welcoming students into our business is an important tradition in our company. We love their vibrancy and vitality and over many decades, scores of students have passed through our doors to supplement their theoretical learning with practical, on-the-job learning and exposure to industry teachers and mentors.
This in-service experience forms part of the learning curriculum and exposes students to the commercial (estimating and quantity surveying) and production aspects of the business. In-service trainees are assigned to teams to gain deep exposure to the industry and to learn the foundations of tendering, project cost management and construction.
We are proud of our student programme and many of our senior executives first joined the company during their in-service year, followed by numerous holiday working stints and finally, as qualified graduates. That’s the GVK way.
WANT TO JOIN OUR IN-SERVICE PROGRAMME?
We partner with a number of tertiary institutions who offer construction related courses and consult with them annually to make our selection for the ensuing year’s intake of in-service candidates.
This is the minimum criteria we consider when recruiting:
Candidates must be South African citizens
- who achieve an average of more than 60% across all subjects, and are
- registered as full-time students in the built environment at a recognised tertiary education facility.
