We are pleased to announce that we will be welcoming 32 new graduates to our industry-leading programme in January.
The new recruits will be joining various departments across all our divisions, with roles including IT, HR, Sustainability, Commercial, Land, Construction and Technical, getting a real insight into how our business works.
This year our graduate programme received a fantastic response and almost 900 applicants applied for a place on the scheme.
The two-year programme will be run by our HR director Karen Jones and Head of HR, Martin Gilpin, and each of the graduates will be mentored by our Managing Directors and heads of departments who will review their work and provide recommendations on their next role on the scheme.
Attracting new talent to the construction industry is vital, especially in light on the UK’s skills shortage. We are committed to inspiring the next generation to build and broadening the career horizons of young people with the careers the construction industry now offers.
Karen Jones, our Group HR Director, commented: “It is fantastic to be offering new graduates a place on our scheme during this uncertain time. We remain determined to do all we can to nurture and develop young talent, so they have the opportunity to become the business leaders of tomorrow. We will use a combination of site attendance together with our comprehensive remote learning support to ensure they have the best possible start in a COVID-19 secure environment.
“The scheme offers graduates such a broad variety of experience across all aspects of homebuilding, enabling our new recruits to trial a range of career options. We look forward to welcoming our new graduates to Redrow in the New Year.”
Alongside the graduate programme, we also offer a Construction Management degree programme in partnership with Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) and Coleg Cambria, which aims to equip participants with the skills to become a construction manager in housebuilding over three years.
