IT Management Trainee

Are you looking to start your career? Or looking for a change of direction? Then we have a fantastic opportunity for you. Let us introduce to you the IT Management Trainee scheme at Willmott Dixon! Our trainee scheme is the perfect introduction to the world of IT, and it isn't just for those that have an IT background - we welcome anyone from any background to apply.

This is a two-year scheme where you will get to experience all areas of IT, and also build up your management skills through involvement in our trainee and social value events. In addition, you'll have the chance to:

  • Experience each department in IT from disciplines such as Cyber Security, Software Development to Project Management and Digital Communications.
  • Create and manage events for a chosen charity to help support the local community and build your network across the business.
  • In your second year you choose a specialism to follow and get really stuck into your future career path.
  • Apply for Trainee of the Year and commit to and deliver a special project that really improves the lives of others with the chance to win Trainee of the Year for your efforts.
  • Throughout the scheme you will have fantastic opportunities to network with many people across the business!

The Project

So, who are we looking for?

Our management trainees come from diverse backgrounds with a variety of skillsets and qualifications, finding themselves in a range of technical and non-technical roles. Whether you have previous technical experience or not, the scheme can be tailored to what you want to get out of it.

Whether you are looking for a career change or you're fresh out of university, we could have the perfect opportunity for you! For starters, there are no set requirements for your degree grade. Don't have a degree or any technical skills? No problem. We will help you develop the skills you need to succeed!

This scheme is an incredible opportunity for someone looking to start a career within IT.

We are looking for the right people who match our company and IT values, so ask yourself these questions.

  • Are you fun and friendly?

  • Are you uncomplicated and genuine?

  • Are you responsive and flexible?

  • Are you innovative and keen to improve?

If you answered yes to these questions, then you will be a great fit for the team and the scheme.

Essential and Desirable Criteria

What do you get in return?

We have been nurturing future talent in this way for over 40 years and many of our past Trainees are now in senior managerial roles or sit on the main board. This is a structured, proven route to a management role in one of the most forward-thinking construction companies in the UK.

During both years you will be supported with regular 1-2-1s and reviews to help you get what you want out of the scheme and ensure you're staying on track.

  • Competitive Salary
  • Motor Expenditure Allowance
  • Agile Working
  • Social Events & Trainee Away Days
  • Generous Incentive Scheme & Performance bonus
  • Pension
  • High-end Microsoft Laptop
  • Comprehensive Training
  • Company Mobile Phone or BYOD scheme

People are not the only thing that are important to us; we are aware of the great challenges humanity is facing when it comes to taking care of the planet and are looking for passionate people that will help us to overcome those challenges and achieve our industry leading, 'Now or Never' strategy.
