Job description

Build your future from the foundations up……

We are currently recruiting for Construction Graduates to join us in September 2017 to support our fast-paced and growing business. These opportunities are based in our regional offices in Solihull (Midlands), Welwyn Garden City (North Home Counties) and High Wycombe (Chiltern).

The graduate programme offers a unique opportunity to start your career in one of our regional businesses and develop your own skills through our one year graduate training programme. You will join one of the UK’s top 10 National House Builders at one of the most exciting times in the company’s history. You will be given real responsibilities as soon as you join the business and see a tangible difference from the contributions you make, but will also be supported and welcomed into a positive, friendly and respectful culture.

Under the guidance of the construction management team, you will be involved in managing sub-contractors by giving them clear direction and clarifying expectations in all aspects of site delivery. You will learn about all site resources including labour, plant and materials as well as on-site health and safety and client customer service.

You will participate in and create a culture where operatives recognise risks to prevent issues arising, ultimately working towards a proactive response rather than a reactive system. You will ensure that Health and Safety standards are maintained through a constant checking process and you will be confident in taking immediate corrective action if you witness a breach of the CALA guidelines.
