10 out of 1400 graduates selected for training programme

Ten graduates have started work after winning a place on Wolseley UK’s Management Training programme.

Over 1,400 applications were received for the Management Training programme.

Wolseley UK partnered with Discovery Graduates to shortlist the candidates following a telephone interview and assessment day.

From this shortlist, 35 graduates were invited to attend Wolseley UK assessment centres held in May, June and July.

Discovery Graduates founder Jonathan Evans said, “Wolseley has recognised the important part that high quality graduates can play in the future of its business, and we are thrilled to be working with them. Recent reports show that Midlands’ based businesses are investing more in their people than any other region in the UK during 2014 - and companies such as Wolseley are increasingly looking at their graduate recruitment and development as a long term investment. By doing so they will improve retention and subsequently get a better return on their original investment.

“90% of the graduates we place are still in post after 12 months which substantially bucks the industry trend and is proof that taking the time to get the right people is time, and money, well spent.”

As a result of the assessment day, eight jobs were offered in branch operations and two in the head office support functions of IT and Product Sourcing.
