Management Trainee Recruitment/Training Programme
Barnes Construction has a well structured Management Trainee Recruitment and Training Programme in place (detailed below). Recruitment takes place in April each year, ready for commencement in September. Advertisements appear in the East Anglian Daily Times/Evening Star in April and shortlists are drawn up thereafter from applications received.
Management Trainees spend several months in rotation in each of the main departments of Surveying, Contracting and Estimating, gaining valuable experience in the securing, planning and administering of current contracts under the supervision of a mentor. Regular reviews with the Divisional Surveying Director ensure that trainees are progressing satisfactorily and that the relevant support systems are functioning correctly so that each trainee gains maximum benefit from the training programme.
Practical experience on site under the supervision of one of the Company's many experienced Site Managers will ensure that the office-based side of the training programme is backed up by sound practical knowledge gained from a current working contract.
The combination of both office and site based experience makes this training a sound and up to date basis for future senior positions within this successful and expanding construction company.
The company actively encourages continued training and offers realistic long-term career opportunities throughout the Group. The Management Trainee Programme reflects this ethos and offers progression through a defined career route with a competitive salary.
