Insider review


7.5 / 10

(based on 6 ratings in 2018)


"There are numerous training courses and workshops. Some are operational and some help us to develop management skills."
Graduate, Thatcham
"There are a few introductory and skills-based training programmes that everyone is required to attend. These give a useful overview of different leadership techniques, how to guide conversations and how to adjust our management style for different people. Most of the training and skills that you will develop come from informal on-the-job training."
HR, Graduate, Newbury
"I went on a communicating for results course that was brilliant and actually taught me a lot. None of the courses are of the format where someone just talks to you. They're very interactive and you get out what you put in."
Graduate, Chineham, Basingstoke.
"I've had the appropriate safety training as well as multiple courses around growing my personal management style. If there's a course that I want to attend then I just have to ask and I'll be put on it."
Graduate, Thatcham
"Training with the graduate training team is very good but the training I've had within the depot has been poor."
Graduate, Barnsley


"I've been on lots of training courses and done my certificate of professional competence qualification. There's also been training on leading difficult conversations and leading in an involved environment as well as health and safety training, driver and vehicle management and accident investigation."
Graduate, Crewe
"The majority of training is on the job and there are also a few management courses."
Mid level, Stone
"Training can seem unbalanced as most of it is targeted at specific graduates or industrial placement students. However, you have the opportunity to do more structured training internally with your manager."
Graduate, Prefer not to say
