University/ Degree: Nottingham Trent; Economics, Finance and Banking
Hi I’m James. I am currently working in the the South Midlands region of Redrow in their rotational graduate role, and I graduated from Nottingham Trent with a 2:1 in Economics, Finance and Banking.
Although my degree has very little to do with the construction industry I spent a year on placement working with a variety of housebuilders and decided I wanted to go into that industry. One piece of advice I would give you is that Redrow are not just looking for people with experience in the construction sector, as long as you are willing to learn and take an interest in the business you have a very good chance of getting the job.
Outside of work I spend my time playing a variety of sports (mainly rugby) and socialising with friends, with my weekends consisting of meeting friends, going out and playing the occasional rugby match if I have time.
Redrow’s rotational graduate scheme is a great opportunity to experience all the different areas of the business and learn from everyone in them. Redrow have a real focus on training and development which means plenty of trips up to the Midlands office for training days with the other graduates and afterwards you will get to experience a night out in Tamworth!
Good luck with your applications! I look forward to hopefully meeting some of you in the future.
