Fixed term – 2 years (with brilliant opportunities for a permanent role)
Full Time (37.5 hpw)

Starting salary up to £28,800 per annum
Based Farringdon, London
At Home Group we’re building for the future. We’re building homes, independence and aspirations supported by our brilliant graduates who are our next leaders and future industry thinkers. If you’re creative, collaborative and ambitious and want to be part of something brilliant then join us.
Starting in September 2019, if you’ve graduated (or due to graduate this year) and are looking for rapid career development, then our graduate programme is the perfect route for you! It will only take you two years to become a fully qualified Assistant Delivery Manager where you’ll be managing the delivery of our new homes pipeline for your region, managing projects from planning submission right through to practical completion.
We have an ambitious target to build 10,000 new homes and you’ll play a key role in helping us to achieve this. Working within our award winning team (we’ll tell you a bit more about that later) you’ll work across Delivery, Development, Placemaking, Strategic Development/Partnerships, Build to Rent and Sales, working on live projects whilst learning your role. In year two you’ll specialise in Delivery/Project Management on larger scale projects, gaining practical experience and relevant skills. We’ll also sponsor you to achieve MRICS (or an equivalent relevant chartered qualification).
These are brilliant opportunities to work on a range of schemes from affordable housing to our private sales and rental brand Persona. With a tailored development plan, on-the-job learning, formal mentoring and in the know that our previous graduates have all secured permanent roles with us; what are you waiting for?
You'll report to Andrew, our Head of Delivery who was born and bred in Manchester, but has lived in London for over 20 years and still cannot believe that it doesn’t rain there every day. (Sound!) Andrew is passionate about delivering quality homes for our customers through brilliant design quality, on time and to budget. If this your passion too, then you’ll really fit in here.

A bit about you
You’ll ideally have a 2:1 degree (or expected to achieve this) in Built Environment such as Construction, Town Planning, Land Economics, Property, Urban Design, Surveying or Project Management or equivalent. You’ll be people focused and ambitious to build a successful career with us. You’ll be eager to learn, collaborative and have a good understanding of the project management process, as well as residential led development schemes. If you have an understanding of the commercial aspects relating to housing development then this would be the icing on the cake (or should we say the sold sign on the door!).
A bit about us

It’s the team’s unwritten rule that you attend the important appointments in life, be your graduation, or to get your new fridge delivered. You can elect to fit these around your working day taking advantage of our agile ways of working. Our focus is on getting the job done, not your working hours!
