Training Assistant Placement


We’re currently offering the opportunity for an undergraduate placement student to gain valuable experience and develop a number of key skills that will help you to pursue a career in the business world.  

Working at our Head office in Skipton, North Yorkshire, this is a great opportunity to gain a real insight into the world of work, delivering support to our training team.  

With a workforce numbering upwards of 900 people, we deliver thousands of hours of important training every year, with our own in-house trainers and with external suppliers. Managing the delivery of this training challenges a number of key skills and will stand you in good stead to tackle your last year at university and career thereafter.

What you'll do: 

  • Join the training department, providing great support to the team, helping achieve key measures and improve performance.
  • Keep accurate training records for all employees.
  • Liaise with training providers and site managers to arrange training courses.
  • Deal with colleagues across the company at all levels.
  • A lot of construction training is mandatory – without it people can’t work on site. You’ll support the important renewals process, ensuring qualifications don’t expire and sites can continue to operate. 
  • Arrange post-training follow-ups. 
  • Work with the training budget.   


What you'll bring: 

  • A strong work ethic and proactive approach.
  • The ability to prioritise your workload effectively.
  • Good attention to detail. 
  • The ability to work under pressure whilst maintaining a sense of humour
  • Experience of using MS Office and a basic understanding of other IT systems. 
  • Good communication skills – you’ll need to build relationships with people at all levels of the business.   
  • Knowledge of the construction industry is desirable, but not essential. 
  • The paperwork: You must be studying a full time business-related degree, and be eligible to work in the UK.
