Housebuilder launches new graduate programme

Tim Beale

KEEPMOAT Homes has launched its first ever graduate scheme as it looks to find six new recruits.

The move is being driven by CEO Tim Beale who, 17 years after completing a graduate trainee programme himself, joined Keepmoat Homes as divisional chairman, before being promoted to COO and then CEO in January 2019.

As well as securing a two-year graduate role rotating across technical, legal, technical, commercial, construction, sales and finance, successful candidates will be rewarded with a £25,000 annual salary, company car, 25 days’ annual leave, a pension, healthcare benefits and the chance to gain professional qualifications.

Tim Beale said, “There’s nobody better-placed in this organisation to comment on the benefits of a graduate training scheme – my own CV tells the story. After completing a degree in urban studies, and then adding a diploma in town planning, both from The University of Sheffield, I joined the industry as a land graduate trainee. That graduate scheme truly set me on my path and I progressed quickly from land buyer to land manager, land director, managing director and on to the role I do today.

“Our Land & Partnerships Graduate Programme will give six bright new grads that same chance I had, though today’s schemes offer far more diversity of learning.

“Our fast-moving, four-week rotations will give the successful candidates a broad understanding of the Keepmoat Homes business, developing their understanding of the operational model and allowing them to build a network of contacts.

“I’m delighted to be launching our first ever graduate scheme and welcoming tomorrow’s industry stars into the Keepmoat team.”
