Redrow are one of the most acclaimed housebuilders in the UK. Throughout our 40 year history, we have built a reputation for quality in everything we do - both providing beautiful homes that people love to live in and developing our people.
In 2016, we were recognised as "highly commended" by the JobCrowd as one of the Top Graduate Employers to work for - based on reviews by our own graduates.
Each graduate will have real responsibility within our business, mentored by experienced members of staff and have the opportunity to develop and progress - Whichever programme you’re on, you could have an exceptional future here. Just ask our former graduates Sarah Cooper, Lee Hawker, Paul Sinclair and David Faraday, who have all reached senior levels of responsibility within the business.
All of our graduate programmes take part in a community project each year, working with a community group, charity or local worthy cause. Example projects in recent years have included garden refurbishments for schools, charities, hospices and hospitals – a shipping container fitted out as a liveable space to help the homeless, or a school project Viking long house using sustainable, recycled materials! The graduates will be given no budget and will rely on their own ingenuity and the skills and network contacts they have gained during their time in the business. Whilst challenging, each group gains a great deal in terms of confidence, team working and project management and Redrow continue to put something back into the communities we work with.

But it’s not just about the placements we offer; Redrow want the right people working for us. As we expect a lot of applications, we need our successful candidates to stand out. We like our people to be different – so what sets you apart? What can you offer us? Why do you want to work at Redrow?
We look for applicants across England and Wales, but from time to time we may not be able to find a placement in your local area, therefore the more flexible you are and open to temporary relocation, the better.
Be clear and concise, and make sure that everything that goes into your application represents your qualities.
What next? – Our applications close in January 2018, as we expect a large number of applications please don’t expect to hear back until February. Our assessment days will be in February/ March with interviews and verbal offers made shortly after. You will start between July and September, depending on your chosen programme.
