What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
The best thing about the graduate scheme is the variety it allows you to experience. By rotating across 6 different function groups of the business, you are really able to get to grips with the workings of the business and form positive relationships across the board. This provides a fantastic springboard for the next steps in my career, which will hopefully be in a management-level role. I have only been with the company for 4 months but the rotations mean I have already learnt a phenomenal amount about things I had never even thought about. There is a fantastic office atmosphere, and it really does feel like people want to help in whatever way they can.
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?
My main advice would be to take time to understand Barratt Developments' key competencies (listed on the careers website) and think about how your own experience may demonstrate these and then use these in your application. Take time to learn about the company, and make it clear why you want to work for this company specifically.
