Barratt Developments Job Reviews

All of the below information comes directly from job reviews written by Barratt Developments employees

Review summary

“The best in the industry”; “absolutely fantastic – I’d recommend it to anyone”; “the best out there in terms of personal development”. These are just a handful of the glowing reviews for Barratt’s graduate scheme, most of which seem to conclude that the company “trains its staff to the highest standards”. The excellent training at Barratt is mentioned time and again by its employees. One reviewer claims that “the training and personal development opportunities are second to none”, a view supported by another graduate: “the training, support and exposure on the graduate scheme have far exceeded my expectations”. It is hardly surprising, then, to see Barratt’s incredible score of 4.9/5 for Training Provision. Simply put, “the training is exceptional”. This high score can be put down to a number of factors, but the ones which seem to shine through most are the regular mentoring from senior management and the value of the first year rotations, which “give graduates an excellent overview of the business before specialising in a chosen discipline.” The support provided is simply described as “incredible” by one reviewer, while another explains that “having direct face-to-face access to directors is fantastic and gives you a real sense of responsibility”. It is because of this “strong support network”, the regular progress meetings and the “approachable and helpful colleagues, managers and directors” that Barratt receives a rating of 4.7/5 for Support, 4.6/5 for Colleagues and 4.4/5 for Management. Numerous graduates also point to the plethora of opportunities for personal development, with regular workshops and courses which provide training in specific business areas as well as leadership, project management and personal growth. As one happy graduate sums it up: “Looking elsewhere, I don’t believe you would get anything like the responsibility, diversity or introduction to the business world at another organisation.” [From the Top Companies 2015/16]
