During the course of your placement you will be working on cutting edge projects supported by industry experts. The 12 month placement includes the following opportunities:
Apply online between 4 December 2017 and 9 March 2018
Complete the online application form. We recommend that you prepare your responses in advance in a word processing programme in order to check spelling and word counts. We receive many applications for the sandwich year placements and the overall quality is very high. We recommend that you research the Berkeley Group and our developments. The most successful candidates put time into answering the questions on the application form and demonstrate a genuine interest in the company.
Applications made by email or post will not be accepted.
Complete a telephone interview
Successful applicants will be contacted to arrange a telephone interview. Telephone interviews will be held from January - March 2018. They will be led by the Graduate Recruitment Team and will be strength-based and cover a variety of areas.
Attend a final interview
Candidates who impress during their telephone interview will attend a final interview and deliver a presentation. The interviews will take place between March - April 2018 and will be attended by directors from the divisions. You will be required to deliver a 10 minute presentation as part of the interview process.
If successful you will be offered a position
Successful applicants will receive a job offer within 48 hours of attending the final interview.
Undergraduates begin work
You must be able to start in a full time capacity, so please do not apply this year if you are not able to complete a placement year from September 2018.
We seek to recruit the most talented undergraduates at the very beginning of their careers, to convert academic learning into practical development skills.
We look for students who:
Complete the online application form. The application process closes on 9 March 2018; however, if we receive enough applications we may close the process early.
Successful applicants will be invited for a telephone interview. If successful, you will be invited to a face-to-face interview with directors and asked to give a 10 minute presentation in May 2018.
Offers will be made to successful candidates within 48 hours of final interviews. Your placement year will commence in September 2018.
The Berkeley Group is an equal opportunities employer. Unfortunately we are unable to sponsor visa applications. If you require a visa to work in the UK you must obtain this independently and provide evidence of this visa before the start of the programme.
You will be based in one of our offices or construction sites in London, Birmingham and the South of England. You should be prepared to move between offices and sites based upon business needs. Every effort will be made to ensure that you are placed in the most practical region for you.
On successful completion of their placement year, undergraduates may be offered a place on our Graduate Scheme for September 2020. We encourage undergraduates to view sandwich placements as a 12 month interview, providing the platform to impress and reaffirm their passion and commitment in their chosen area.
Your application will be acknowledged and we will provide updates at each stage of the interview process. You can request feedback from the graduate recruitment team if you have attended an assessment day. However, due to the high volume of applications it will not be possible to provide feedback at earlier stages.
Berkeley will be attending the following events on campus, come down and meet former alumni and our current graduates and recruitment team and let us answer any questions you may have.
