Josh joined on our Rotational Graduate Programme in September 2015, based in our Midlands Division. He heard about the opportunity at his University Careers Fair and was attracted by the opportunity to rotate around various departments.
“I applied for the Graduate Scheme immediately after speaking to one of the existing graduates at my University Careers Fair. It was the opportunity to rotate around six key departments that attracted me to the role, as I knew it would give me a vital insight into our business.
I’ve moved through each of the six departments now- and it was definitely the right decision. This has given me a vital insight into Land Acquisition, Engineering and Construction, as well as Commercial, Customer Service and Sales – all of which have helped me understand the processes involved at each stage of a residential development. It has allowed me to understand the role that each department plays in this process and how they all link together.
So far I have most enjoyed my time in the Land department, learning about land acquisition. I am fortunate to have worked alongside experienced personnel in each department that were always happy to help.”
Josh has now secured a full time position with the company as a Land Negotiator and hopes to continue learning about the industry, looking forward to a varied and interesting career.
