Do you want to kick-start your career? Are you currently studying? Then check out the Cadet Experience. We are looking for people who would like to grow their career and fast-track their learning by combining work, study and most importantly having fun!

The SHAPE Building Cadet Role

A SHAPE Building Cadet is a learning role supporting the project delivery teams during pre-construction, onsite throughout construction and post-construction to ensure client satisfaction.

We understand our cadets will be studying, so we will work with you to create a flexible working plan and accommodate university timetables and holidays.

The role will see you be responsible for assisting with:

  • Estimating, tendering and bid submissions
  • Document control
  • Reviewing subcontracts
  • Processing invoices
  • Minuting subcontractor and client meetings
  • Coordinating safety requirements on site
  • Coordinating defect rectification
  • Providing general support

Cadet Experience

SHAPE Cadets not only participate in real work-life but also develop a tailored learning plan, gaining exposure to skills you can’t always learn in a textbook.

You’re going to discover the tips and tricks of your role on-site and we will support you in the development of your personal brand.



What we’re looking for

Students in either Construction Management, Architecture, Engineering, Quantity Surveying or similar that match our values, have a passion for construction and a willingness to learn. Ideal applicants will be in their 3rd-4th year of studies, but still, apply if you are in your 1st or 2nd as we always want to hear from great people.
