Management Trainee Programme

At Hill, we are committed to developing construction professionals of the future with our Management Trainee Programme.

Our Management Trainee Programme is designed to create exceptional professionals in the housebuilding industry.

The programme enables trainees to be paid a competitive salary whilst working towards a BSc (Hons) degree. During term-time, our trainees will typically work four days a week and attend university on the fifth day. Hill funds the degree so there is no need to worry about student loans or tuition fees, and invaluable on-the-job experience is gained. Most importantly, there is a guaranteed job after graduation.

Performance is monitored and rewarded with annual pay rises, and benefits such as a company car and fuel card are also given as part of the trainee package as you progress and gain more experience and skills.

Management Trainees are enrolled on an accredited degree course and work alongside experienced and knowledgeable employees, and are assigned a mentor to guide and assist in career progression. In the first year, our trainees experience hands-on training as they rotate through a variety of departments so that all elements of the development and build process can be learnt.

At Hill you will receive first class training and gain a qualification that will set you up for life. We offer a wide variety of roles and the chance to work on and influence industry-leading projects, with a great support network.

The WhatHouse? Awards judges said: “Hill has a passionate drive to encourage more young people into housebuilding and address the industry’s skills shortages.”
