Major opportunities for young graduates

The Group’s business segments offer an extensive range of internships and work/study contracts, giving young graduates rich and varied experiences that support their personal and professional development.  

These opportunities often serve as a springboard into their first career role. Internships (lasting between three and six months) and work/study contracts give young people a chance to settle into a team and work on projects alongside employees who are dedicated to imparting their expertise. 

Campus teams in each entity are responsible for onboarding new arrivals and managing the community of interns and people on work/study contracts, helping them to network and share their experiences.  

Work/study contracts are offered across all the Group’s business segments and are open to all regardless of educational background – from those with vocational qualifications to those who have completed postgraduate studies.

Graduate programmes run by Bouygues Construction, Bouygues Immobilier and Colas allow participants to learn about the business through a diverse and immersive experience. 

Induction processes that combine serious games, MOOCs and other digital tools with on-site events are used widely across Group entities.

Strengthening ties between the worlds of business and academia

Forging closer relations is at the heart of our graduate recruitment policy. We maintain a strong presence at open days, hold challenge competitions and hackathons, and organise events to showcase our lines of business.

All these initiatives make the Group a source of learning recognised and appreciated by our interns and people on work/study contracts alike. In 2020, Bouygues Construction, Bouygues Immobilier, TF1 and Bouygues Telecom were all listed in the “Happy Trainees” rankings of companies where interns and those on work/study contracts are the most satisfied – for the second year running.

Echoing this ambition, the Bouygues group in 2020 joined forces with academic institution HEC Paris to found the “Smart City and the Common Good” academic chair.

Group entities make sure that the young people they recruit are given a proper welcome. Induction days with project presentations, conversations with employees, site visits and mentoring are all designed to help interns, work/study students and graduates become familiar with the world of work.

Thousands of talented people come to work for us each year as interns, apprentices and young graduates, and on work/study contracts. Whatever your profile or ambitions, find out more about the opportunities that await you.
