Inspirational Careers Advice
We have joined forces with innovative careers website Plotr to encourage more young people to consider a career at Costain.
‘Plotr’ is an online careers service for 11- to 24-year-olds that is free for young people, parents and teachers to use. Founded in 2011, ‘plotr’ is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company that combines input from careers advisers, youth organisations, teachers, leading technology and social media companies and hundreds of young people to create an innovative and informative careers advice platform.
Working with ‘plotr’ we have created the ‘Costain Career World’ to represent the sectors the Company operates in and included 11 job roles to demonstrate the various careers available within the Group. The jobs are a mix of entry-level and aspirational roles and the site offers advice about how you get started, what skills are needed, what qualifications are required and what salary might be expected.
There are also short video clips of Costain employees talking about their role, how they got started, what their key skills are, what they love about their job and, as with all jobs, what the biggest challenges are.
