Landsec Academy

The Landsec Academy programme is no longer accepting applications for 2019.

The Landsec Academy programme is designed to help people develop their career in a FTSE 100 property company and achieve their potential.

Our Landsec Academy is suited to anyone who is starting off their career or embracing a career change. We’re looking for five individuals for our available roles, which are:

• HR Academy Trainee
• Finance Academy Trainee
• Operations Academy Trainee
• Tech Academy Trainee (Developer)
• Tech Academy Trainee (Business Analyst)

As well as spending time in your chosen stream, there are also structured rotations across the business, so you get as much experience of life at Landsec as possible. The different areas of the business that you'll work in include, but are not limited to: Health, Safety & Security, Sustainability and Project Management.

In addition to gaining a wide range of experience, you'll also get a relevant academic qualification, a competitive salary, support from tutors, a mentor, managers and a buddy, and there's the potential to move into a permanent role on completing the programme.

What can you expect?

“I had my eye on the Landsec Academy programme for a few years while in school. The concept of being able to rotate around the business, gaining practical experience whilst completing a professional qualification, really appealed to me.

“Now I’m here, I’ve learnt so much by spending time in different departments and various onsite placements. I am currently on my fourth rotation on the scheme, which is in Health, Safety & Security. It wasn’t an area I was interested in before, but I’m thoroughly enjoying it.

“One of the best things about being a trainee is the responsibility I’ve been given alongside the invaluable support from fellow trainees and teams. It’s great to manage my own workload and to be treated just like everyone else in the team.

If you’re looking for a varied role and a great proactive introduction to the property sector, then this is the scheme for you. I’m looking forward to completing my qualification and seeing where it takes me in my future career."
