Joining Telford Homes as a Graduate Trainee or a Trainee will enable you to become a leader of the future. Our highly successful ‘Careers Under Construction’ Trainee Programme is designed to give you a broad range of experience and a chance to try out many aspects of what we do.

You’ll be mentored throughout the programme – and there’ll be opportunities for you to continue your career with us.

We believe that the achievements of many employees who have started their career with us through the trainee scheme is a real testament to the rewarding and comprehensive programme we offer.

You can participate in either a two or five year structured and supportive training programme that develops your skills and knowledge so that you are all set to be highly successful in one of the following careers: 

  • Engineering
  • Quantity Surveying

  • Technical
  • Planning
  • Estimating
  • Buying

Join us for a five year Trainee Programme and we will finance your education to degree level whilst supporting you to gain a recognised industry accreditation such as RICS or MCIOB.

Link up with us for a two year Graduate Trainee Programme and we will finance you to achieve a recognised industry accreditation such as RICS or MCIOB.

Coupled with the above, you will have the opportunity to experience other areas of the business to give you an understanding of other key areas of the company and how they interface with your chosen one. 

We offer a great range of benefits. Applications are open from October each year. 

Christy, one of our Construction Trainees, recently spoke with Show House magazine about her experience of the Trainee Programme - you can read that here

The Telford Homes Trainee Programme is different and it was the personal development that truly drew me to the company. Since joining in 2016 I have worked in five different departments which has enabled me to build an extensive knowledge of the company, gain an understanding of the departments operations and engage with lots of colleagues. As a result I’ve really progressed. Ultimately, the Trainee Programme is providing me with the foundations for a prosperous and exciting career.

Sam, Commercial Trainee
