Length of time at Bellway: 9 months

About you?

Starting with Bellway as an Urban Planning Graduate, I had little knowledge of how the construction industry worked or how the company functioned in the North East (where I wanted to be based). Within my first month I had quickly adapted to the work which was expected from me and the level at which it needed to be produced. This was all made easy by having the ongoing support of my colleagues, line manager and mentor coupled with the structure of the graduate programme.

The graduate programme has been a great start to my career at Bellway and has massively improved my self-confidence with the right balance of challenge, autonomy and reassurance.

Throughout my brief but busy time here I have been involved in a variety of activities from undertaking detailed land searches, contributing to a project to support a high profile charity partner with fellow graduates, participating in a team spinning challenge and moving to a brand new, purpose-built head office.
