About us

McCann are a leading civil and electrical engineering construction company operating throughout the UK on major road, rail, and airport infrastructure projects for public and private sector clients.

For over five decades we have delivered integrated infrastructure solutions that meet business needs and exceed expectations, while upholding a commitment to delivering a first-class service.

As a leading supplier and installer of street lighting, traffic signs, signals, communication systems and associated civil engineering, we play a key role in the development of project design and buildability whilst working comfortably within a wide range of contractual arrangements. Our services include:

  • Professional Services
  • Highways
  • Multi Utilities
  • Special Projects
  • Civil Engineering

We have a wide ranging commitment to social value that sees us support communities across the UK - including charitable organisations, groups and localised projects - as well as an embedded environmental strategy which sees the business invest in the latest sustainable innovations as we target Net Zero by 2040.

Holistic project delivery

From local authority partnerships to private sector collaboration, we support the delivery of future proof infrastructure on a national scale. This has included numerous term maintenance street lighting contracts with local authority partners such as North East Lincolnshire Council, the London Borough of Hillingdon and Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council.

One notable recent local authority success has seen us appointed on a landmark street lighting services contract with Suffolk County Council, as we assume responsibility for fault repairs, asset cleaning, electrical testing, visual inspections, lamp changes and associated civil engineering. The contract covers an initial seven year period, with the option of an additional three year extension.

We also continue to push into new or emerging markets wherever possible, with the business securing its first water contract in 2024 after it was named on Northumbrian Water’s AMP8 Framework. McCann will join ten fellow contractors on the £3.8bn AMP8 capital investment programme which aims to improve infrastructure across the Northumbrian Water and Essex & Suffolk Water operating areas.

Supporting the next generation

We recognise the value of investing in the next generation of industry talent as we work to meet skills shortages and give young people a route into a rewarding career path. This includes offering apprenticeships and placements, while employing dedicated STEM ambassadors to share knowledge and educate young people about how rewarding a career in civil engineering can be.

In 2017, McCann became a member of the 5% Club, a scheme that recognises businesses with 5% or more of its workforce working towards an apprenticeship. Our apprentices follow a structured programme - undertaking approximately 50 days of learning, key skills development, work-based and technical training and work-based experience over the duration of their course. Key skills developed include:

  • Numeracy, literacy and communication
  • Customer focus
  • IT
  • Self-management and awareness
  • Team working and leadership
  • Thinking and problem solving

We motivate our apprentices to reach their full potential through recognising and developing not just technical, but also business and personal skills. We inspire them, nurturing their confidence and helping them to develop the essential personal skills needed to progress their careers.

Our aim is for at least 90% of those who join our apprenticeship programme to stay with McCann into full employment. Once in full employment, apprentices continue to have access to learning and development opportunities as well as the support of their line manager. They play a key role in mentoring future generations of apprentices through ‘buddying’ - helping to create positive and quality work experiences.

Exciting careers with a trusted employer

Be part of a large, highly skilled, directly employed workforce. We offer the opportunity to work on some of the UKs most exciting infrastructure projects in a fast-paced environment where each day brings new challenges, as well as a competitive salary and benefits package. We will always consider flexible working hours and arrangements.

With an ambitious strategy, we are poised for further growth and success so if you are committed, talented and enthusiastic, then McCann is the right place for you.
