Named Contractor of the Year by the Water Industry Awards, Galliford Try is one of the UK’s leading construction businesses with a vision to continuously be a people-orientated, progressive business, driven by our values to deliver lasting change for our stakeholders and the communities we work in.
Our purpose is to improve people’s lives through building the facilities and infrastructure that communities need, providing opportunities for our people to learn, grow and progress, working with our supply chain to promote the very best working practice and caring for the environment in which we work.
We do this by holding true to our values; delivering excellence for our clients and the community, demonstrating passion about our role in providing vital services, putting integrity at the heart of our business by doing the right thing, and being collaborative with our clients, supply chain and stakeholders to deliver lasting change and long-term value.
We were named a ‘Top Graduate & Apprentice Employer’ by TheJobCrowd, the only graduate and apprentice employer ranking system based on employee feedback, and we appeared second in a list of 100 for apprentices and graduates to work for across the industry, and 17th out of 100 graduate employers UK-wide. We are also proud to be a gold member of the 5% club – an association that recognises employers with at least 5% of their workforce in ‘earn and learn’ positions.
Our Graduate Development scheme is a structured training programme made up of six key modules designed to support and empower you to develop your career. The modules will support you to develop your leadership and interpersonal skills and enable you to reach your potential. The programme lasts for two years which you will attend in parallel to your permanent job role. This is complemented by technical, on-the-job training as needed, as well as learning directly from experts within our business.
In addition, if you decide to work towards your professional qualification while on the programme, we can provide all the support you require to complete this.
As a Graduate Quantity Surveyor, you will work closely with your line manager to assist in the commercial administration, reporting and performance on a single large project or several smaller schemes.
