A young group, for construction companies, but one that has grown a strong reputation, Mace manages big construction projects, like the Shard in London, but does not do the actual construction bits. Most Mace apprenticeships end below degree level, with no obvious indication of how to get on terms with the graduate recruits (and that matters, because until a firm makes the mental leap to acknowledging apprentices as being as good as graduates, apprentices will find promotion hard), but Quantity Surveying - a cross between accountancy and construction - is the exception, and you end up as an associate member of the RICS with Mace pushing you on to full membership. A site-based role in the construction side, so do not count on moving over to consultancy from here.

Quick and easy to find a sensible page with a cheerful brochure and a straightforward application process. Not a prize winner because we had no joy finding the missing pieces of the jigsaw but a decent effort to explain what's on offer.
