Your development. Our success.

Redrow is serious about nurturing young talent – our training programmes will equip you with the skills, knowledge and experience you need to embark on an exceptional career. They’re a great springboard to other, more senior roles, which is why we’ll be sure to invest in your training and development right from the start.

Opportunities with Redrow

Trainee Site Assistant Programme

Aimed at developing promising people within our business, trainees are generally chosen from our site-based teams; it could be that they’re working as a forklift truck driver, labourer or an apprentice, for example; or may be recruited directly onto the programme. Develop your career in construction using your existing skills, or bring with you practicality, problem solving and management potential from outside the industry, either way the programme is an excellent way to progress.

If you join us in any of those roles, this programme could be your next big step. It will give you the knowledge, understanding and experience you need to become an Assistant Site Manager, working towards an NVQ in Site Supervision as well as BTEC level 3 in Construction and the Built Environment.

The Trainee Site Assistant Programme represents a fantastic opportunity to join Redrow’s experienced and highly successful construction management teams. If this sounds like a challenge you would relish, we want to hear from you.

  • It’s the greatest experience for someone who has recently finished high school and started college
    Brianne – Technical Co-ordinator

    Our People

    brianeBrianne joined our Midlands division in 2013 on our technical trainee programme after finishing her GSCE’s.

    “I have always been interested in construction and was looking for a place where I could learn from the best. My careers advisor from my high school told me about Redrow and their day release programme, so I put in an application. I was over the moon when I found out I had been accepted.

    “Every day is different because of the various work to be done. Some days it is site visits, others its layout design or sitting with the engineers and understanding their job roles. Sometimes my mornings will start by continuing where I left off the previous work day.”

    “I am currently focusing on the designs and helping putting in applications for new and existing sites. Most of the time I am given a list of drawings that need to be completed, for a certain site, so an application can be put together. Otherwise I am completing bits and pieces for other people within the department.

  • Even though I haven't been here that long, I've learnt so much
    Peter – Trainee Engineer

    Our People

    Peter joined us as a technical trainee in 2013. Now a trainee engineer, he’s based in our Yorkshire division.

    Previously working in vehicle recovery/repair Peter was actively looking for a job in the construction industry. “I therefore enrolled myself in an AutoCad course and I heard about this opportunity through a friend. I could see there was a lot of potential to learn and progress, so made the decision to apply”.

    “I’m glad that I did. Even. The learning has been extensive too. I’ve been on numerous training courses and right now, I’m working towards a Btec with Leeds College.

    “The job itself is very rewarding. I spend a lot of my time on site gathering information and inspecting works that have been carried out. I then feed this information back to designers and support them in the production of their AutoCAD drawings.

    “My best achievement so far was designing a section of a drainage system. I was able to go onsite and see it being physically installed. Seeing what I had designed going into the ground was a proud moment for me.”
