NEWS: Wheatley launches talent search for new graduate programme

21 June 2019

Wheatley Group, the housing, care and property-management group is recruiting 12 university leavers to join its housing teams and a further four graduates to join its corporate support service. It has launched a search for 22 graduates to join its new two-year programme in what is believed to be the biggest graduate training programme of its kind in Scotland.

On top of this, Wheatley is looking for six people with degrees to join its repairs and investment team.

The successful candidates will be offered on-the-job training and development opportunities for further study, qualifications, and mentoring support to build a successful career.

The housing graduates will work across Wheatley’s social housing and property-management subsidiaries, including GHA in Glasgow and Dunedin Canmore in Edinburgh. Corporate support services graduates will work in Wheatley’s Glasgow city centre office.

Lesley Wilkinson, Wheatley director of employee relations, said:

“This really is a fantastic opportunity for talented graduates from all different disciplines to carve out a great career. We’re looking for talented and ambitious people who share our social purpose and ethos and have a strong desire to make a difference to people’s lives. In return they’ll get individual support throughout the programme and a great package of benefits.”

A number of graduates are already working in Wheatley thanks to the Graduate Employment Mentoring (GEM) programme – a national graduate scheme for the housing sector in which Wheatley has been a partner for a number of years.
