Trainees & Apprenticeships

The 5% Club

We are proud members of The 5% Club and have a long-standing tradition of promoting an employees growth through trainees and apprenticeships.

This is showcased by the fact that 20% of our workforce have come through a trainee, apprenticeship or graduate programme.

The 5% Club is a movement of more than 250 employers providing ‘earn and learn’ opportunities to develop the skills and talents people need to become more employable and create meaningful careers.

Companies joining The 5% Club commit to raising the number of apprentices, sponsored students and graduates on formal programmes to 5% of their total workforce within five years.

Our commitment to Trainees & Apprentices

Our aim is to give young people with no skill set the opportunity to train up and develop a trade.

We encourage the use of trainees on our sites and regularly work with local schools and colleges to develop our programme.

We currently have four trainees working for Deeley Group on a full-time basis:

  • Three no. Management Trainees
  • One no. Accounts Assistant Trainee

Our site management trainees currently work on our affordable housing developments and gradually increase their experience through new tasks.

Work Experience

We often support local schools and colleges by placing school and college students on 1 or 2 week work placements.

They will gain an insight into the construction industry by working with the following teams:

  • Site Management
  • Quantity Surveying
  • Administration
  • Financial Accounting
  • Design & Build
  • Site Engineering
  • Business Development & Marketing

The 5% Club is about employers stepping up to the plate and addressing the critical skills challenges in a proactive and positive way – for their businesses and for their employees of today and tomorrow. It’s about developing people with the right skills to forge meaningful career paths and its members represent the gold standards of training and skills development. The 5% Club is the FTSE for companies investing in skills and training.
