New graduate training scheme launched

We're delighted to announce the launch of our brand new Graduate Management Training Programme, which gives young people the chance to develop a career in the builders merchants industry.

Offering graduates the opportunity to get to know the sector inside out, the two year programme will include working in a variety of roles and departments interspersed with tailored training workshops that will be delivered by the Builders Merchants Federation.

The first year will be spent at our head office in Ringmer, where graduates will gain experience in a range of roles including sales, transport and operations.  In the second year they will have the opportunity to further develop their skills and experience working alongside colleagues in one of our Sussex based branches.

At the end of the programme it is hoped that the graduates will be in a strong position to apply for supervisory roles within the business before progressing to management positions in the future.

Andrew Cope, Managing Director of Chandlers Building Supplies, commented: "Graduate training schemes offer young people a fantastic opportunity to immerse themselves in a particular industry.   This will be our first Graduate Management Training Programme and we look forward to welcoming the successful candidates into the business.

"I'm sure many young people will not have considered looking at career options within the builders merchant industry, however, for an individual with drive and determination there is plenty of opportunity to establish a very varied, fulfilling and successful career."
