This year, Mercury will be looking for those who are ready to be part of something special and reach their full potential, while working on complex projects that deliver leading edge construction solutions for some of the world’s largest corporations. 

We recently held our first highly successful virtual careers fair which provided interested attendees the opportunity to learn more about who we are and connect with our hiring managers. 

As European leaders we are invigorated by what lies ahead in 2024 as we continue to make strides delivering our clients’ visions across multiple sectors, from Data Centres to Semiconductor to Life Sciences, and beyond. At the centre of this winning culture is a commitment to our people. We give them the opportunity to develop as part of a supported team where they can realise their full potential. We have a proud record of retaining staff long-term from apprentice and graduate level to becoming senior managers.  

A career with Mercury also offers a competitive remuneration package and other benefits, as well as excellent career development opportunities. 

If you are ready to take the next step in your career, here are the key skills we are looking for in future members of our European team:

Our Work Safe, Home Safe ethos is embedded in our DNA, and we have crafted a safety culture where everybody is committed to the wider team’s safety.

Key to our success is our team’s resilience and adaptability. When working on fast paced projects, having an ability to shift perspective or approach in response to the demands of the project while maintaining efficiency and effectiveness is crucial. Our people remain agile to meet the evolving needs we see on our projects and at a wider, industry level.
