 GRADUATES

This comprehensive training programme enables graduates to have a series of three to six month placements in the core areas of the business such as Land, Development, Construction and Sales and Marketing. In the final placement graduate trainees spend time in their destination department, or areas relevant to any further education or professional qualifications they are undertaking, such as RICS, RTPI or CIOB.

There are two programmes under the Graduate Management Training Programme:

Construction

This is tailored to Construction and the requirements of relevant professional bodies. Specifically designed for trainees who are interested in one area and have a degree relevant to it, for example in Engineering and Construction Management.

The trainee will spend the majority of their time within the relevant construction departments, but will spend a few months in the other core areas of the business to ensure they have a broad knowledge of the Group.

The Generalist Programme is designed for trainees who may have a non-relevant degree or who may have a relevant degree, but are unsure as to which career path to take. This programme will involve spending six months in the core areas of the business such as Land, Development, Construction and Sales and Marketing.

Upon finishing the programme virtually every one of our of Graduate Management Trainees have taken up full employment with the Group in their chosen career.
