Location : Farringdon
Type : Full Time, Fixed Term Contract

The Role

Willmott Dixon is one of the largest privately owned Construction businesses in the UK. We are passionate about our people and have a real focus and drive to support their continuous development. We strongly believe that this passion is what differentiates us and has allowed us to enjoy considerable success in recent years including achieving 4th place in the Times Top 100 Best Companies to work for in 2019. 

We have a Welcome Back Programme which supports talented people who have taken a career break of 1 year or more and are now looking to return to work. Alternatively, this programme could suit someone who started out, or qualified, in a construction-related field but took a different career path and would now like to return to a role within construction. 

This is a 20-week programme where you will be placed on a project or in a team within Willmott Dixon Interiors where your skills and experience will be valued and utilised and in some cases brought up to speed with industry developments where appropriate. During the programme you will participate in coaching workshops and will benefit from a comprehensive induction process and focused training to support you. 

Starting in September 2019, this programme offers a paid placement of 20 weeks, and the possibility of a permanent role at the end.  Interviews will take place in June with a view to offers being made in July to successful candidates.

 Flexible working will be considered for all our Welcome Back opportunities.
