Thakeham Career Insight and Engagement Day

Thakeham is holding an event at East Surrey College in Redhill on Wednesday the 17th May for Service leavers to discover more about careers within housebuilding and construction. 

Attend on the day to find out more about Thakeham, meet service providers across the product life-cycle of housebuilding, understand more about the extensive supply chain and the huge variety of opportunities presented in this thriving sector, and discuss live and future job opportunities. 

Thakeham was established in 2002, initially focusing on creating select new homes developments in Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire. Since then, as the Thakeham Group, it has progressed to a comprehensive range of operations across the whole spectrum of residential development and place making, enhancing entire communities as well as meeting the aspirations of direct customers.

Thakeham also has a substantial strategic Land and Planning Team, which sources the prime locations that are fundamental to the Group’s success, and has established fruitful relationships with local landowners and planning authorities. 

The Thakeham Group therefore offers employment opportunities that reflect the entire lifecycle of development. Opportunities range from land sourcing and planning promotion, running through technical design, engineering, quantity surveying, buying, site management, and on to marketing, sales, customer service and support administration.  

Thakeham works with a team of highly professional hand-picked consultants, suppliers and contractors, establishing long and successful relationships. These partners offer the full range of services required in house building, from development sourcing to design, supplies and contractors from ground works to high spec finishing. In addition, Thakeham collaborates with East Surrey College who provide a wide range of technical courses across the construction industry, should you wish to further your learning/education.
