Trainee Scheme- Two places available

We are a £30m turnover independent family owned company with 150 staff. We can trace our roots back to 1740 here in Guernsey, so we are truly a local island business. Expansion over the last seven years has created many opportunities for our staff to progress, as we firmly believe in "promotion from within". We recognise the need to continue our succession plan to ensure we have the right calibre of Managers to take the company forward over the next few years as we move forward: so we are taking the bold step of offering two places on a three-year exclusive training course.

You will be spending your first year free of academic study whilst you settle into the work environment. Three months in each of our eight departments learning the basics over a two-year period will give the rounded knowledge needed to succeed in the management of the future at Norman Piette. This will include Marketing, HR, Finance, Timber and Boards, Showroom, Plumbing and Heating etc.

In your second year, you will begin a two-year stint on a Management/Business Studies Course leading to a recognised qualification. From then on, the future is up to you and your drive, as by then you will have attained uniquely diverse skills in many areas of our business.

To be successful in your application you will need to demonstrate drive, an ability to learn quickly, enthusiasm and ambition; in return we will offer you a competitive salary and a dynamic career path in a local company that is moving forward rapidly...
