Early Careers

Trainee graduate scheme

The aim of the Grafton GB Trainee Graduate Scheme is to develop a pool of talent for management and senior management positions into the future. We offer access to the key areas of our business providing you with the skills and experience to develop personally and professionally. Our graduates are vital to Grafton GB’s ambitious future growth plans and successful candidates will be fast tracked in to the roles that will define our future success.

Management Trainees

The Management Trainee scheme is our entry point for school or college leavers looking to kick-start a focussed career progression into their first supervisory position with two years.   Trainees complete a series of secondments to find out about all the functions of a branch while completing a Level 3 Diploma in Management.  They also receive a structured programme of e-learning, supplier training and personal development before deciding on their chosen career path.

Work Experience

We fully support the idea of people undertaking work experience with us, whether in one of our branches, warehouses or support offices.

Work experience is a great opportunity to see what aspects of work you like or you’re good at. It will give you the opportunity to get to grips with working – meeting deadlines and working in a team. While this will give you the opportunity to expand your knowledge, it will also help you find out more about the industry.

Please contact your local branch or office where you would like to carry out work experience in the first instance.
