Beginning your career

7% of our employees are in graduate, apprenticeship or trainee roles. That’s higher than most organisations aim for so you can be confident we’ll give you a good start to your career. And that doesn’t include the summer placement students we continually provide opportunities to and who typically return to fill graduate positions with us on completion of their studies.

 

STARTING THE JOURNEY

 

It’s not always easy to know what you will want long term, as you start out on a career. With that in mind, our programme is designed to be supportive and flexible. We will provide the structure you need and you will be encouraged to shape your career as you go.

You will begin by attending an induction programme where you will meet other new entry graduates, apprentices, trainees and year in industry placements. Here you can start to build relationships with your cohort that may go on to last a lifetime.

Meeting regularly with your peer group to share experiences and to support each other with your career development is embedded within the programme. You will also be partnered with one of our more experienced members of the programme, who will share their knowledge and answer those questions others may not be able to.

 

GIVING SOMETHING BACK

 

Today, work life balance and having an ethical purpose are important for many people in their career. We agree, and so we encourage all our employees to give something back to the community.

Employer supported volunteering

You will be entitled to a day’s paid leave annually to volunteer for a cause close to your heart.

This day can be taken individually or with a team of like-minded colleagues to work on a community project for the day.

Bridges to Prosperity

After a qualifying period, you could also get involved with our Bridges to Prosperity programme.

Bridges to Prosperity teaches communities to build footbridges over impassable rivers enabling access to healthcare, education and markets, helping to relieve rural isolation.

We partner with Tony Gee, a consulting engineer, and each year both companies select five volunteers for a bridge build project in Rwanda. You will raise the funds needed to cover the cost of your flights and in-country expenses. In return, we will grant you 10 days paid leave to complete the build.

We firmly believe that your experience will not only enrich our business but will promote your personal development, as well as relieving isolation for another much-in-need, rural community.

“Unmissable experience with amazing people, great sense of achievement.”

Matthew Russell, Quantity Surveyor.
