Wolseley invites undergraduate applications

Published:  24 March, 2015

Wolseley UK’s 2015 Management Training programme is now open for applications.

The programme gives graduates the opportunity to join a FTSE 100 company and become part of the next generation of managers. This is the third consecutive year of graduate recruitment for Wolseley UK, and this year it is looking for 14 talented people.

Vacancies on the Management Training programme start in October 2015. All trainees will begin their programme with a placement in branch, where they will learn how to do business at the trade counter. A placement in sales follows, and trainees are then appointed to a deputy branch manager role for their final placement, with support continuing for a further six months.

Joanne Smith, HR director at Wolseley UK, said: “Recruiting for 14 new graduates represents a significant investment into the business’ next generation of leaders. We offer genuine career progression, a competitive reward package and fantastic training and development opportunities for our employees.”

Management trainees are supported throughout the programme by their placement manager who assists in day-to-day activities, a coach from the senior management team who offers advice and guidance, and a mentor – many being former graduates themselves.
