Graduate Programme – Engineering & Design

Locations: York, Leeds, Northampton, Watford & Guildford

Salary: Up to £27,000 p.a. + benefits and incentives

Housing has never been more in the public eye than it is right now. And as a graduate with us, you could play a central role in helping us to revolutionise housing in the UK. We’re Britain’s best-known house builder, and we build for the future. That means sustainable, energy-efficient homes that help to improve people’s quality of life.

If you think that a graduate career with Barratt is all bricks and mortar, you’d be wrong. You’ll certainly be building – but you’ll be building networks, building connections and building our business. Our graduate programmes are masterclasses in every aspect of the process of planning, designing, building and selling homes. Our two-year ASPIRE programme will teach you all about finance, construction, sales, land buying, engineering and design, as well as quantity surveying and procurement skills.

Graduates have voted us The Job Crowd’s #1 company to work for in property and housebuilding for the last 6 consecutive years. Offering early exposure and all-round experience, it’s not hard to see why. Our two-year programme features:

  • Six individual rotations across our business in the first year, designed to give you a complete understanding of the construction lifecycle.
  • The chance to specialise in engineering and design in your second year, creating site layouts and working drawings, researching innovative building techniques, and seeing your designs come to life.
  • Intense and individually tailored development, including formal training and study for professional qualifications.

Entry criteria

Expect a training programme that will push you to achieve your full potential, setting you on the path to a fully qualified and flourishing career. As long as you have, or are expecting, a 2:2 or above – ideally in a subject related to the built environment, though we’d welcome applications from any candidate with a passion for our business – we’re ready to listen. In return, you’ll enjoy a highly competitive salary plus some impressive additional incentives and generous benefits.
