Galliford Try has been voted the best place for graduates to work, and second for apprentices, in TheJobCrowd’s list of Top Construction and Civil Engineering Companies as reviewed by grads and apprentices themselves.

Receiving the title of ‘Top Graduate & Apprentice Employer’ for the fifth year running, Galliford Try additionally ranked 22nd for grads and 24th for apprentices across all sectors, out of over 600 UK companies.

The organisations were benchmarked on employee feedback across 13 criteria including culture,  enjoyment of role, ESG factors, rewards, training and career progression, and work-life balance.

Vikki Skene, HR Director and Executive Board member for Galliford Try, said: “As a values-driven, people-orientated organisation, we pride ourselves on the quality of our early careers programme, recognising their contribution to growing our own talent. We are pleased to have received this seal of approval, once again, demonstrating that we are a destination employer, not only within the industry but across the UK.”

In November, Galliford Try’s commitment to early careers ‘earn and learn’ schemes was recognised with its second Gold Award through The 5% Club’s Employer Audit Scheme, which covered future plans and commitments and examined the Group’s approaches to quality, social mobility, diversity and inclusion.
