Any company is only as good as its people. Thats why we believe in providing our team with high quality training to ensure our continuing success in the future.

Site Operative Training
As we directly employ Craft Operatives on our sites, safety is our primary concern. We provide regular and ongoing training, including tool box talks, to ensure everyone can carry out their roles safely, efficiently and to the highest possible standard.

We work closely with ConstructionSkills and Darlington College to offer structured, 3 year apprenticeships in the traditional building trades such as Brickwork and Joinery.

This gives committed and talented young people an opportunity to gain an NVQ3 qualification and a secure future career with Walter Thompson.

Higher Education & Professional Qualifications
Our commitment to training is not limited to the trades. We actively encourage higher education for our supporting team across many different careers including:

• Quantity Surveying
• Estimating
• Procurement
• Planning
• Human Resources
• Administration
• Accountancy

We also promote the attainment of professional qualifications. Many members of our team hold membership to the CIOB or other appropriate professional bodies.

Graduate Placements & Recruitment
We offer year out work placements to students and have strong links with the following universities and colleges:

• Darlington College
• Redcar and Cleveland College
• Northumbria University
• The University of Teeside
• Leeds Metropolitan University

We consider graduates when recruiting for all levels and positions, particularly for Quantity Surveying and Estimating positions.
