Application Advice:

If you are the type of person who is severely competitive and looking for your name to appear on golden plaques within 1 month of starting a role, this isn't for you. Willmott Dixon looks for people who are true team players, genuinely friendly and those who are not afraid to put in some hard graft in order to achieve a level of autonomy.

Interview Advice:

Make sure you know what you actually want, where you want to specialise. Don't be pretentious, Willmott Dixon is a family owned business and they prefer genuine, grounded people with good values and people skills above everything else. Interviews will be based on 121 with HR, group assessment and another 121 with a director.

The group assessment is a task-based activity. Relax, be a true team player, show co-operation, take some form of lead, remain charismatic and make your people and analytical skills shine.

Application Advice:

Look at the company website to find out some information about the trainee scheme and what the company is all about. Some of the trainee's also do vlogs about what they may get up to at work during the day, which can be really interesting to watch to learn about the scheme and a bit about construction.

Also the construction industry has so many different roles, so researching about the different jobs that you can get involved in can really help see what areas you may be interested in. It isn't all just about roles that you may typically associate with construction!

Interview Advice:

Demonstrate you are willing to learn - the trainee scheme is all about learning your role, the industry and about how the company works. The scheme attracts a wide variety of people e.g. school leavers, graduates or people that may want a career change, so there is no typical 'Management Trainee' and you won't be expected to immediately know everything.

Most importantly be yourself as much as you can, even if you are slightly nervous and not sure of what to say. It's okay to take time to think about an answer to a question, rather than rush a response that you may not have given if you had taken a minute to think.

Application Advice:

Ensure your CV is fully up to date, and try to sell yourself even in the application stage.

Interview Advice:

Be prepared, At my interview I had to do a small presentation about myself. So being confident and clear goes along way. and most of all be yourself.

Application Advice:

Your skills don't necessarily need to be construction/technical related. Highlight what your key skills are and why they are going to be key to your development and what you can bring to the company. In my application, none of my skills were construction related - you are a trainee for a reason, they are not expecting you to know everything/anything about construction but if you are keen/willing to learn and you have the right people skills they are likely to hire you for that over anything.

Interview Advice:

Make it clear how keen you are to learn. They hire you for your attitude and train you for skill. I did not have any previous experience in construction but they could see my eagerness and determination to learn which is the most important thing. You must have the right attitude and they will give you every opportunity to get the career progression you want.

Application Advice:

Read into the company in which you are applying. Understand the industry as best you can, but also dont be afraid to ask!

Really think about how your skills are best suited to a role. try and show how you are different.

Interview Advice:

be yourself.
Remember that the person interviewing you can be as nervous as you are as you are interviewing them as much as you are being interviewed.
Use what you know about the company to your advantage, but also ask how they feel about the company.
Personal strengths and weaknesses are a classic question, but they will also ask what area you would be interested to train in. This is not for a final decison but to help guide them into where you could potentially fit into the WD teams

Application Advice:

Be honest and passionate about whatever you are talking about.

Interview Advice:

A knowledge of the company and history goes down well. But like anywhere a passion for what you are talking about be it hobbies, sports, interests, work, the role comes across very well.
The work the company does outside 'pure construction' is also a good go to.

The internal culture and working environment have to be sone of the best features, followed by brilliant projects and working next to some of the industry's best professionals.

Best:

The company ethos of working together and collaboration with external comapies (supply chain) to try and work towards a happy customer on all projects. (defect free/perfect product).
They push you to continue to learn; at quaterly 1-2-1 meetings you look to discuss your career developement and how you intend to look to do so. there is a MyLearning portal of courses and programmes available to everyone within the company.
Charity work for the local community,; each employee is entitled to one day paid charity work as a minimum. For trainees this is much more.
The honesty and openness is infectious. the general understanding that everyone is working to a common goal and all have a say - from Directors all the way down to Trainees.

Worst:

Travelling can be varied and all over. We have a large patch and sometime you end up aving to do a rather long journey to work!
But they work with this is ensure that you are at the closest location you can be, and this is not always the case.
