“I joined Bagnalls after completing my degree, I was looking for a role in the industry where I could continue building on the knowledge I already had, to progress into a management position. I was attracted to the Management Trainee programme because of the variety offered in the role, from pricing works to overseeing contracts and managing accounts. I also liked the fact that Bagnalls offered the opportunity to progress once the programme has been completed.
My degree helped me to understand the concepts of tendering, specifications and measuring as well as the importance of health and safety. Since I joined Bagnalls I have learned much more about the importance of organisation and planning to make sure jobs run successfully. There is a lot to take on board, but it does become easier once you start to pick things up.
I would encourage others to join the scheme because of the support offered by other members of staff within a branch as well as at head office. Bagnalls also provides opportunities for further education, for example through the Chartered Institute of Building.”
