What’s more, 6.5 per cent of employees are in apprenticeships or training positions which are helping them to develop their skills and to rise through the ranks.
There are many different career paths to embark on at Bellway, from bricklayers building new homes to sales advisors selling them, and young people are employed within teams across the division, including technical, sales, construction and management.

“We have a fantastic team of enthusiastic individuals within the division who are keen to learn and work and produce the best new-build properties for our customers.
“As a company, we are committed to helping support employment opportunities in the areas in which we build, as well as nurturing the housebuilders of the future by ensuring skills are passed down to the new generation coming through the ranks.
“I look forward to seeing our young employees building their careers in construction and continuing the high standard of work that our customers expect from Bellway as a housebuilder.”
