One of the main reasons I applied for Galliford Try’s graduate scheme was because of their renowned construction projects such as the Queensferry Crossing and the Retractable Roof for Wimbledon’s Centre Court.
Galliford Try have given me the opportunity to explore other disciplines of the construction industry including design and commercial along with site management. Understanding how these disciplines operate are vital for a successful Project Manager, in which I aim to become in the future. Over 18 month programme, we attend a number of modules as part of the Graduate Development Programme, which provide us with further knowledge and understanding on developing ourselves within the industry and the business. To date, modules include project management, communication and financial awareness.
What I enjoy the most about the graduate scheme is the variety of training and skills you are given from day one and the support you are provided from your team and business unit whenever you need it.
