Build Your Future with Us

Posted: 17/01/2019

Are you looking for a rewarding career in the Construction and Built Environment whilst learning on the job and earning a competitive salary?

Our Management Trainee Programme was created to identify an array of young talent to work and develop careers within the Construction Industry and Built Environment. The programme allows individuals to get a taste for a number of core disciplines throughout the company before deciding on a discipline to specialise in.

Once enrolled on the programme, flexible rotations allow trainees to spend three to four months in four different departments before selecting one area of the business to pursue their career.

During term times trainees will be working a four day week, with the remaining day spent at an industry accredited University, working towards a Construction related BSc (Hons) degree. The programme fully funds the degree and allows individuals the opportunity to ‘earn whilst they learn’ without the burden of debt once the course has been completed. Individuals will earn a competitive salary and will benefit from performance based annual pay rises.

Whilst at Higgins, each management trainee will be enrolled in a mentor programme whereby a senior employee provides individuals guidance on their career at Higgins as well as assistance with their studies.

Management Trainee roles:

  • Construction Management

  • Commercial

  • After Sales

  • Estimating/Pre-Construction

  • Planning

  • New Business

  • Technical Coordination

  • Health and Safety

At Higgins we recognise the importance of young potential and provide the building blocks for management trainees to advance to senior levels of management and Directorship.
