Saint Gobain Building Distribution Graduate Scheme
NOTICE: This job has now expired and will not be accepting any more
If you're a talented and ambitious graduate, you'll appreciate the benefits of a development programme that puts you firmly in the frame. One like ours. Saint-Gobain Building Distribution is Europe's number one building distribution business. And while our name may not ring any bells, you're probably familiar with the name Jewson - the UK's leading supplier of building materials and just one of our hugely successful brands.
Innovative and fast growing, we've over 12,000 people at over 720 sites across the UK and Ireland. Last year we recorded sales in excess of ú1.9 billion. We're also a valued division of Saint-Gobain - one of the world's 100 largest industrial groups.
Joining us on our two-year programme is your chance to benefit from the highly structured and comprehensive training you need for a rewarding fast-track career, just like Gemma and Ross have:
Gemma Blakey, gained a 2.1 from Warwick University, currently working at Jewson, Stratford upon Avon "The course is immensely demanding but it's really rewarding to see ideas and initiatives that you implemented working everyday. It provides you with all the practical skills and knowledge you need from product training through to hands-on experience of different roles within a branch. And there's a strong emphasis on how to build strong customer relationships which also helps you develop your own inter-personal skills. I would recommend the programme to anyone who has a practical outlook to life and is willing to learn something new."
Ross Jones, gained a 2.1 from Liverpool University, currently working at Graham, Chester "I am really enjoying my placement at Graham, there's never a dull moment! The customers make the job really interesting and I like the fact that my current position is not the typical one-dimensional role that so many people end up with on other graduate schemes. The course will help me to make the most of the fantastic career opportunities available within Saint-Gobain Building Distribution and has made me realise that there really is no limit to how far you can progress. All you need is the enthusiasm, commitment and motivation to get where you want to go.ö
