Morrison Construction has been recognised as both a ‘Top Graduate Employer’ and ‘Top Apprentice Employer’ in the Construction & Civil Engineering sector, once again appearing in TheJobCrowd’s league table - the UK’s only graduate and apprentice employer ranking system based on employee feedback.

The business's parent group Galliford Try came second in the ‘Larger Employer’ category for apprentices, and fourth for graduates, firmly positioning the business as a leader in the industry for early careers. Beyond that, the Group ranked 93rd out of all UK companies for graduates and 33rd for apprentices.

Described as the ‘TripAdvisor for jobs’, TheJobCrowd collects feedback on areas such as company culture, training, progression opportunities, work-life balance, environmental awareness and benefits. It provides a wealth of information to guide early career candidates through the confusing maze of choosing an employer.

Commenting on Galliford Try’s success, Megan McLeod, Early Careers Manager, said: “Graduates and apprentices are the future of our organisation, providing a pool of talent that our business is dependent on. We are therefore committed to a regular intake of graduates and apprentices, and provide them with a challenging and rewarding experience where they receive hands-on experience, develop their technical skills and learn from some of the best people in the industry.

“As a values-driven, people-orientated organisation, we are delighted that our efforts have been testified by our graduates and apprentices themselves. We’re particularly pleased that the ranking also recognises the success of our award-winning wellbeing programme ‘Be Well’ and our agile working practices providing our teams with a good work-life balance.”
