About the Graduate Programme

William Hare offers a fantastic graduate programme across our UK business. As a graduate you will work through a structured two and a half year programme, combining practical experience, academic learning and professional development whilst also offering the opportunity to work with and learn from senior members of the business.

During your induction you will have the opportunity to visit our UK facilities, see some of our live construction sites, take part in team building activities and get to know your fellow graduates.

Throughout the programme, you will continue to benefit from ongoing support from your mentor and our Learning and Development team. As well as your day-to-day role, you’ll also be part of a business improvement project team, reporting to the Chief Operating Officer (COO). This real world project will be an opportunity like no other and your hard work will have a genuine impact on our business.

For your hard work and dedication, you’ll receive a competitive salary, the opportunity to further your career with post graduate qualifications and the opportunity to travel and work around the UK with the potential of a secondment in London.

About the programme

Based at Grantham, William Hare’s treatment facility caters to the growing need in the market for specialist painting systems including intumescent fire retardant coatings, highly durable epoxy systems and decorative finishes for architecturally exposed elements. Our Coatings and Inspection Graduate will have the opportunity for plenty of on-the-job learning, working closely with the senior members of the Coatings and Inspection teams. You will be given the opportunity to complete a paint inspection programme, as well as fire proof inspection and will eventually become a member of ICORR.

Being part of a graduate cohort you will attend regular development meetings and team building events, and have the opportunity to travel and work around the UK.
