And because we know how important it is that our people share in the success of the business, we’ll give you the recognition you deserve for a job well done.
Morgan Sindall Infrastructure is a UK construction, infrastructure and design business with a network of local offices. We work for private and public sector customers on projects and frameworks from £50,000 to over £1 billion. Activities range from small works to the design and delivery of complex construction and engineering projects. We operate across the commercial, defence, education, energy, healthcare, industrial, leisure, retail, transport and water markets.
We believe that there’s no better place in our industry to build a career – that the breadth of opportunity and potential here is unmatched. If you want to join a team behind projects that will shape the country for decades to come, we’ve got everything you need to get started.
At Morgan Sindall Infrastructure we offer our people, whatever they do, the chance to have an impact on some of Britain’s biggest and most exciting construction and infrastructure projects. Working among the best and brightest people in the industry, you’ll be given the tools and the autonomy to develop your career in the direction you want. And because we know how important it is that our people share in the success of the business, we’ll give you the recognition you deserve for a job well done.
We strive to ensure that the salary and benefits packages we offer are among the best in the industry. What you receive will depend on what you do – and how long you stay with us.
There is also the opportunity at the start of each year for permanent staff to purchase up to 5 days additional holiday through a salary sacrifice arrangement.
Because we believe that people share in the benefits of their hard work, our staff receive excellent pay and a range of individualised performance-related rewards. Depending on where you work, you could also be in line for a company car or travel allowances.
Juggling work commitments and family life is a challenge for everyone – that’s why Morgan Sindall Infrastructure employees are eligible for enhanced maternity and paternity benefits, as well as childcare vouchers and a great holiday allowance.
As you might expect from a company such as Morgan Sindall Infrastructure, there’s also a contributory pension plan and a life assurance scheme – plus a discount scheme that provides money off everything from mobile phones to DIY supplies.
We try to proactively help employees achieve an appropriate balance between work and home commitments through flexible working arrangements where this is appropriate for the role. Our job advertisements indicate where it is possible for some types of flexible working arrangements to be considered, based on business need. We know the benefits a diverse workforce can bring and working parents form one very important part of that.
Any employee who returns from any kind of extended parental leave is automatically offered a parental returner ‘buddy’. This is aimed at supporting in an informal way the return to the workplace and the benefit of another fellow employee’s own experiences of balancing returning to work with family life.
In August 2014, I decided to make one of my dreams a reality: taking a career break to travel around the world. I travelled for 18 months around 29 countries in Africa, South and Central America and Asia.
Overall it was an amazing experience which taught me new perspectives and an understanding of different cultures and ways of living.
Among the challenges I accomplished were collaborating on two volunteering projects in India and Bolivia, climbing a 5,920-metre volcano in Bolivia, riding a motorbike through India and Mongolia, negotiating the process of buying a car in Panama and selling it back in Guatemala (after driving it through Central America), travelling through East Africa (from Ethiopia to Cape Town) using public transport, as well as writing a travel blog.
In April 2016, I moved to London and my daughter was born in August that year. Since then, until joining the Returnship Programme at Morgan Sindall, I was taking care of her on a full-time basis, which was a very rewarding experience.

I first came across the Morgan Sindall Infrastructure Returnship programme advertised on the Institution of Civil Engineers’ website.
I liked the idea of giving an opportunity to people who’d had a break in their careers. I found it to be a unique way to encourage people to carry on with their careers whilst understanding their personal circumstances.
I found the assessment day really interesting as I was able to share my experience and thoughts on what I could bring to Morgan Sindall Infrastructure. I was particularly impressed by the way everything was prepared to make people feel at ease and enjoy the day.
Since starting my Returnship Programme I have been well supported. My manager has understood what I have needed to learn, and we have built on that knowledge and experience. I learnt to understand how important it is to ask questions and be able to provide accurate answers as other people depend on my input.
I am currently working as an assistant design manager where I work with the site team to help them solve any queries they may have with the design aspects of the project. It has been a great experience as I have seen how a project is dependent on everyone’s input to help it take shape and move forward.
It’s been a fantastic opportunity for me and I’m sure it can be for others who want to make their aspirations a reality.
