Osborne is one of the leading construction businesses in the UK. As a family-owned business, we have the freedom and flexibility to take a different approach. We focus on creating structures and spaces that provide an environment for people to thrive in and solutions for our customers that provide a better experience during the creation.

We provide an inclusive environment which is aligned to our core values of Quality, Integrity, Openness, Caring and Progressive. We value everyone as an individual and provide the opportunity to influence and change the way that we do things to ensure that we progress and evolve as a business.

Infrastructure, be part of our success
Infrastructure is not just about building practical solutions for our customers – it’s about enabling people, businesses and communities to become more connected. Our employees are an integral part of that process, whereby each individual helps to shape the future of Transport Infrastructure across the country. If you’re looking for an exciting opportunity to make a difference, then you have come to the right place, with over £1b of secured pipeline taking us up to pretty much the end of this decade. At a time of increased uncertainty greater security of employment as well as development opportunities are important.

You will be focussed in your approach so that we achieve success at all times, whilst ensuring that we work in a respectful and collaborative manner at all times, understanding our need to deliver with minimum disruption to the communities in the areas in which we work. You will be an excellent communicator, and be able to bring the best out of direct and indirect delivery teams through your enthusiasm and willingness to listen and support.

If this sounds a lot like you, and your approach to your work is the same as ours, we would love to hear from you. If we end up working together, we will give you a great environment to work in with real opportunities for you to shine, deliver great work and develop your career.
