What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
The amount of opportunities you are given and the amount of effort and dedication that goes into training you to be the best you can. The company's benefits package is also great and something you get from day one.
Currently, there isn't anything I can say I don't enjoy about my job. If anything, the starting salary is probably a little lower than most graduate jobs offer, and there is no pay rise for the 2 years you are on programme - however to have a job in an industry and company I genuinely love is a downside I am more than willing to take.
What is the annual salary for this role?
Starting salary: £23,000 - £25,000
Current salary: £23,000 - £25,000
What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Be honest and be genuine. I didn't know much about the construction side of the industry but had a genuine passion for new build houses, and in particular Barratt and David Wilson. If you show them your true passion and determination to succeed you can't go far wrong.
Do you have any interview tips?
Again, be genuine and let your passion show. If you can't do that naturally you might be applying for the wrong job. Barratt is also about your potential, not entirely on what you have done previously so highlight all your skills and show how these can be improved and how determined you are to learn more.
