Graduate Employment

Dear Student/Graduate

Murray & Roberts offers bursaries for top South African achievers who desire to be part of a world class organisation with a global presence.

Bursaries are available for students studying towards a BSc, B Eng or B Tech qualifications in the fields of Engineering (civil; mechanical; industrial; electrical and mining), Quantity Surveying and Building/Construction Management.

As of April 2016, we have taken a strategic decision to end our online application process. This decision has been taken due to the down turn of the global economic climate, which has had a significant impact on the industry. We have, therefore, regrettably had to readjust our awarding strategy.

The selection panel will now deal directly with Universities to select eligible students for our student and graduate programmes.

Regrettably no first year bursaries are available.

For any queries, please contact Client Service on 011 456 1144 or email:
