Available Between

Bellway is a FTSE 250, five star house builder, headquartered in Newcastle upon Tyne, which operates 22 trading divisions across England, Scotland and Wales. The company has grown from a family firm, established more than 75 years ago, into a respected national brand, selling over ten thousand homes a year.

At Bellway we recognise that people are the key to our success and our goal is to provide a rewarding and fulfilling career in line with our values of quality, service and trust.

As a member of the 5% Club, Bellway is fully committed to increasing the number of trainees, apprentices and graduates that we recruit and support.

We are offering up the opportunity for 30 students from across the UK aged 14-19 years old to spend a day with some of the Bellway team to understand house building and the career paths within the industry.

The insight day is aimed at increasing the awareness of the housebuilding industry through the delivery of an engaging workshop, whilst giving you an introduction into some of the different job roles and different departments that make up this exciting growth sector.

The session will be delivered by real life professionals, so they can give advice and guidance on the sector and share their own experience of working in the industry.

The day will start with a live meet and greet followed by an introduction to our organisation. You will then have the opportunity to meet colleagues from a number of departments and learn about the build life cycle with plenty of time for Q&A’s.

The day will also include an interactive group project task that will test your communication, decision making and team-working skills.

Before applying please note, students will need to be available for the full duration of the time when the session will take place online which is 10.00am – 3.00pm.
