Future Talent

Investing in tomorrows talent today

Walter Lilly is a company that takes the long view. We encourage and support professional and personal development, and invest heavily in training and education, nurturing the next generation of talent to ensure the long-term growth of the company.

Our trainee and graduate programmes are intended to give your career the best possible start. When we take you on, we make a commitment to you – this means looking after your career development and providing structured training.

Why Walter Lilly? Just ask our people. You’ll find that there’s no one thing that makes Walter Lilly a great place to work – it’s a lot of things. They’ll mention our reputation, the high standards we expect, the team of leaders, or the opportunities we offer. For all these reasons and more, most of our people have been with us for nearly a decade – many for much longer.

Graduates & Trainees


That’s why we invest in training and education to nurture the next generation of talent.

We’ve been sponsoring construction courses at Loughborough University since 1998 and have built a close relationship with the Civil and Building Department of the University. This allows us to work with the University and other sponsoring companies to tailor the course to the ever-changing construction environment.

Walter Lilly takes great pride in visiting the University and Department Open Days, as well as social events organised by the Department. Being present at these events not only gives us a chance to meet new students, it also allows us to get all of the existing sponsored students together for social events. As the smallest company in the consortium, we have the flexibility to tailor our support and opportunities for individuals.

Walter Lilly has also supported a number of trainees through their NVQs and degrees on a part-time basis in London. This provides the trainees with the chance to learn through their experiences as well as academically.

Walter Lilly promotes trainee presentations and group activities, offering the trainees the opportunity to get together regularly to discuss their progress and for social events. In the last two years, our graduates and trainees were given the chance to go to Swaziland to help construct a Neighbourhood Care Point for All Out Africa, a charity which supports Swaziland’s vulnerable orphans.
