Christy, who started at Telford Homes as one of our Construction Trainees and has now been promoted to an Assistant Site Manager, spoke with Show House magazine about her experience of the Trainee Programme - you can read that here.

I joined Telford Homes in September 2021 as a Trainee Quantity Surveyor and have thoroughly enjoyed my time here. Everyone at the company has been very welcoming and that made it easy to settle in. The apprenticeship scheme here is great because you can gain invaluable experience in a number of different departments across the company, I’m looking forward to going on rotation to the other departments as part of my development!

Lewis, Trainee Surveyor
