aufBAU BusinessJunior.

Candidates should have some work experience, either acquired after school or gained through one or more internships. You should be able to demonstrate an open and outgoing personality, a proactive and dependable attitude towards your work and well-developed analytical thinking skills.

Building Future.

A technical trainee programme for technical college (HTL/FH/TU) graduates.

Have you graduated from a university of applied sciences, vocational education and training institution or technical college and are now looking to embark on a career with good prospects? Would you like to expand your theoretical knowledge with some practical experience and help to shape the construction sites of the future?

Our eight-month Building Future programme offers a varied experience with a technical focus. Trainees will acquire specialist knowledge they can apply in a future role as a construction site engineer on a building site. This will lay a solid foundation for a long-term career in the sector.

On completion of the programme, trainees will be employed as construction site engineers on construction sites around the nation, and begin to take on increasing responsibilities. Opportunities will follow to work on both national and international projects and eventually seek promotion to the position of site supervisor.


We’re looking for dedicated graduates from technical colleges, universities of applied sciences or vocational education and training colleges with technical qualifications in the area of building construction. In addition, applicants should already have some professional experience or have completed at least one internship in the industry.

Successful applicants will be flexible and willing and able to travel with a view to working on projects right across Austria and, in the future, internationally. Candidates must demonstrate a reliable and proactive attitude towards their work, an interest in the construction sites of the future, and an open and sociable personality.
