About the Laing O’Rourke Technology and Innovation Group
Laing O’Rourke aspires to be the leader in innovation and excellence in the construction sector, and therefore we think differently. The technology and Innovation group (T&I) is responsible for creation and adoption of new ventures and technologies that improve the way we do construction. We are a group of open-minded and diverse engineers, architects and entrepreneurs, working in a fun and fast-paced environment. We value autonomy and self-drive, as well as openness and collaboration.

At the Laing O’Rourke T&I Group, we know disruption is coming to construction. We are excited for it. The industry is faced with a plethora of challenges across the entire value chain: from productivity, quality and safety, to technology adoption, agility and risk management.

The role as founder or co-founder at the T&I group gives you the opportunity to solve these complex problems in a supportive, start-up environment with direct access to domain experts and your first customer base - our live construction projects and wide construction network.

Founder / Co-founder attributes:
We are looking for both technical and non-technical entrepreneurs, who are:
• Driven to achieve their goals, and not deterred by challenges or hurdles
• Comfortable with uncertainty, ambiguity, and creating progress out of chaos
• Excellent at solving problems, with strong expertise in their technical or non-technical field, and have the ability to grasp complimentary subject matter quickly
• through both expertise, research and thinking differently
• Passionate about innovation, technology, start-up methodologies and disruption
• Confident communicators, in all forms from engaging with people, to presenting and story-telling, and framing complex problems simply.

Details of the Position:
The position is a 6 month, full time, paid placement in the T&I group, where you will meet periodic milestones to discover, validate, prototype and pitch your venture for investment. Success after the 6-month period is the opportunity to be CEO or CTO of a start-up in the venture portfolio.
