We are passionate about our role in providing vital buildings and infrastructure across the country, committed to the idea that what we do makes a real difference to people’s lives.

Driven by our values, we are people-orientated and progressive, and our offering is defined by our people. So, if you’re a team player, committed, talented, enthusiastic and want to make a difference to the world around you, join our team and learn from the best.

The best of both worlds

While we love a hard hat and high-viz vest, there’s more to us than PPE. We are at the cutting-edge of digitalisation, using robots, AI and Modern Methods of Construction to deliver the future of the UK. And if a career on site isn’t for you, you could join one of our many professions including HR, Carbon, Data Analytics, Bid Management, Systems Development, Finance or Social Value.

 Work for the #1 Grad Employer for Construction & Civil Engineering

We’ve been voted the best place for graduates in construction and civil engineering across the UK, and our award-winning Graduate Programme is designed to give you a rich, hands-on experience where you will develop your technical skills, grow your network and gain professional qualifications if you want to.

Work with some of the best people in the industry in a full-time role, as you start an exciting and rewarding career where you will be enabled to add value to society.

The programme lasts for two years and runs in parallel to your permanent job, with six modules including our much enjoyed Module 4, a teambuilding event in the great outdoors designed to bring out your interpersonal and leadership skills, and complement the hands-on technical experience that you will gain in your role.

If you decide to work towards professional qualifications, we will fully fund your qualification and pair you with a dedicated mentor. You will also have access to the GT Academy, an online portal that will aid your professional development both while on the Graduate Programme and onwards in your career.

Our programme culminates with a celebration of you and a promotion within your role to start the next stage of your career.

Top Apprentice Employer

As well as being top for grads, we’re proud to have been voted second in TheJobCrowd’s list of Top Construction and Civil Engineering Companies for Apprentices, and we came 24th for apprentices across all sectors, out of over 600 UK companies.

So, if you’re eager to start getting hands-on, practical work experience and gain a recognised qualification, then our Trainee Programmes could be the foundation for your career in Galliford Try.

What our graduates say…

“I was attracted to Galliford Try because of the people focussed values. I wanted a role that would offer continuous learning and development opportunities, and the role has been exactly what I was looking for. Every day is different!” Hannah Longbottom, Graduate Bid Manager.

Research the Galliford Try thoroughly there are a lot of business units in Galliford Try including Environment, building, highways you may prefer one over the other.

There will be an online aptitude test at some point in which you will answer maths and English questions along with some problem solving questions, practice some free online tests prior to this as it is timed.

Get comfortable talking in front of others, during the group assessment you will be split into groups to debate 2 topics one you prepare for before hand and one you will find out on the day. Make sure that the stick to what you think and don't change the side of the debate just because everyone else is, you can change your mind if you think the other side has a better argument. In the second debate I ended up the only person on one side of the debate as these on my side switched mid way it was hard to debate a whole group but believe this showed that I am willing to put myself out there for what I believe and would do the same in work if I think another process would be better.

Also during the group assessment you will do some other group tasks ensure that you include everyone in your group in discussion and that you make sure you are seen to contribute.

Overall do your research and make sure it is what you are looking for from my experience they are a great company to work for!

Interview Advice:

For the interview research Galliford Try's position in the construction industry and how the industry is progressing. They will ask you about what you know of the company history and present.

I was asked what animal i would see myself as and then following my answer was asked what trait of this animal do you see in yourself that would make you good at your job. e.g. a cat - persistent until they get what they want, i am like this with work as i will persevere until the work is the best it can be.

Learn the four values of the company and how they relate to you in your life. You may need examples of when you have demonstrated these values in your life.

Be confident in your skills nobody knows your skills as well as yourself sell yourself and make a point of what you can bring to the company.

Come with a few questions for the interviewer about the company; what they believe is the best thing about work there, what the company is doing to work towards carbon net zero, what do they offer for support and progression of their graduates etc.

Interview Advice:

I would advise to be ready to be questioned on situational judgement and have examples of soft skills such as "describe a time where you experienced a challenge and how it was resolved". I would also advise to take a second to form your answer before saying it to the interviewers. They don't mind you taking a few seconds to stop and think before you speak - this helps with nerves and gives you chance to form a solid answer instead of rambling.

Application Advice:

For students looking to get into Construction I'd recommend aiming for a tier 1 contractor and joining their Graduate Scheme. For me, I started off as a Graduate Planner because there was only a vacancy for that role at the time, but I would have applied for any role that was available. Any experience is good experience and it is likely that you can change roles over time and most employers will welcome that if they can accommodate it as it will aid in your progression as an employee.

There were no jobs advertised but I emailed the MD asking about any opportunities. I was told about a job vacancy but when I met with Galliford Try to discuss it we both realised it wasn't suitable.

I applied through the website as well but didn't hear anything back from that.

Application Advice:

Learn what the company does, its structure, key markets, clients and competitors (competitors could also be potential business partners)
Have an understanding of industry trends (read construction-related news such as "Construction Enquirer" or "Construction News")
As a 'non-technical' graduate (a terrible term) Sell your skills, particularly written and oral communication skills (show that you are articulate and well educated), organisation/planning skills and analytical skills for bid management roles; back these up with examples and sell yourself as a suitably qualified graduate who can offer something that technical graduates can't (writing skills are in particular demand for bid management - there is a severe shortage here so don't be afraid to big up your skills and don't be intimidated by 'technical' people - you have something very valuable to offer that they don't have but very much need, so there is a gap in the market for you!)
Do not state your current salary of salary expectations

Interview Advice:

Make sure you understand what the company does and where your division and role sits within the company
Know what your skills are, give examples of when you have put them to good use and try to illustrate how they would add value to the company in the role you are applying for
If you don't know the answer to a question don't fret about it, just say something sensible. For example, I was asked what challenges I thought I would face entering a 'traditional, dirty' industry such as construction (despite my job being office based) and this being my first job out of university with no experience of the industry (I did politics) I had no idea, so I said something along the lines of "the challenges will be no greater than those I would encounter in any other industry because there is always a learning curve and I'm a quick learner" and in reference to the 'dirty' bit I said something about liking the outdoors...! Don't be afraid to talk about your hobbies in relation to your suitability for the role.
Project confidence and professionalism, try to relax and have a bit of banter with the interviewers; they are trying to gauge what it would be like working with you and see whether you could fit into the workplace as much as they are trying to assess whether you can do the job (which you can!)
Do not discuss salary or benefits, wait until you are offered the job to negotiate

Application Advice:

Don't be put off if you have little experience/ knowledge in construction. Galliford Try look for individuals based on their qualities rather than their experience.

Interview Advice:

Be prepared! Bring interesting photos/ examples of previous work to talk through during interviews.

Graduate Quantity Surveyor, Midlands at Galliford Try

Application Advice:

I had 4 stages to secure my position although this may be different for future candidates.

Stage 1 - CV - Keep it clear and concise. Demostrate key skill/strengths without waffling, also good to demonstrate personal qualities.
Cover Letter - Ellaborate on your CV, demonstrate specific experiences where you have ascertained skills etc.

Stage 2 - Online Testing - Be prepared, there are webistes that you can do practice tests.

Stage 3 - Telephone Interview 30 mins - This is your first opportunity to let your personnality shine and for you to demonstrate you are what you say you are!.

Brush up on your telephone manner. Again be prepared practice basic telephone skills, this may sound daft but when the call comes your ability to communicate may just disappear. Be polite, listen carefully to questions being asked and most importantly have your own questions at the end. This shows your interest and gives the interviewer more insight into what type of person you are. Therefore think about what type of questions you need to ask, dont ask about what the pay is at this stage as it will show thats all your interested in and that is the wrong impression!

Interview Advice:

4 - Interview 1hr - You have done all the groundwork to this point the interviewer has your CV and cover letter, test results and telephone interview notes. this is an extensive amount of information already, so what is the interview? Its for the interviewer to put a face to a trail of paperwork you have worked hard to produce. Skills, competence and expereince should have already been demonstrated at this point therefore personallity, proffesionalism and enthusiasm need to be deomstrated. Try to enjoy your interview (its not a funeral) and be happy.

The graduate development team at Galliford Try are very easy going and understading. My advice would be to let your personality shine through and not hide behind your nerves! Demonstrate enthusiasm, commitment and personal drive along with a good smile! Note; dont get confused with being confident and arrogant, it wont get you far. Dont try to be the person your not...be yourself.

Application Advice:

Be clear and honest about what you are looking for in a role and level of support from management.
If you can carry out work experience or get in the door via an admin role then they will get to know you and see how you work and you will be the first to hear about up coming jobs.

Interview Advice:

Be clear, polite and punctual.
If it's a graduate role, don't try and impress them by pretending you know what your talking about. They will train you over several years. They will be more impressed by your commitment and willingness to learn from others.

Application Advice:

Don't be wooly in your cover letter or CV - be succinct and straight to the point.

Interview Advice:

Do your research on the company and how it functions.

Make sure you prepare because you will be asked to do a presentation.

Just be confident in yourself, don't try to pretend you know something if you don't because the people interviewing definitely do know what they're asking about. It's better if you say you're unsure but say why and what you think about it normally it's discussed and they will get more out of how you approached the fact you didnt know rather than listening you to try to dodge around it.

As seen from the above a very people oriented company if the employees are happy in their role the work will be of a higher standard.

Worst:

Graduates are spread about the UK and we do not see each other much would be nice for some more social aspects.
Supporting role graduates are still new compared to other roles like engineering and don't particularly have a set path like the others which can cause a little stress as you don't know what you will end up doing or where.

Despite uncertain times in the market, the company has retained the majority of staff in the division.

They have clear progression paths for you to develop your career and these can be validated by speaking to successful employees who have climbed the ladder.

The graduate program is excellent, I am a big fan of the training providers. They work with the top directors in the business as well, instilling a consistent message from those beginning their careers right through to the leaders of the company.

The company is a people-orientated business and I feel they are a good company to work for.

Worst:

In tough times within the construction industry gone by there have been some sub-par projects built which requires them to go back and fix, at great expense. But the company is pushing its quality training and standards to avoid this going forward.

The worst thing about my company, at no fault of their own, is all our graduate training modules are all online instead of face-face. I feel I'm missing out on creating friendships and networking.
