HEAR WHAT OUR GRADUATES HAVE TO SAY

Construction Graduate Program

“It’s motivating and exciting to be part of such a fast-growing company that has a strong focus on investing in the skills of its people and the culture. I’ve always felt supported, valued, and challenged during my time at here and would highly recommend applying to Kapitol’s graduate program.”

Alex McRae (Kapitol Graduate)

Construction Graduate Program

“Coming across to Kapitol from a large construction company, I have seen programs that pigeonhole graduates in a single role without being able to expand on their skill set. I wanted the opportunity to develop my skills across all parts of the industry and still be able to work alongside people with tier 1 experience. This is something that Kapitol Group have been able to offer in spades.”

Andrew Broadstock (Kapitol Graduate)
